Tinubu visits Ogun monarchs Thursday

President Bola Tinubu will be in Ogun State on Thursday to visit the Awujale and Paramount ruler of Ijebuland, Oba Sikiru Adetona in Ijebu-Ode and the Alake of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Gbadebo, in the state capital.

An aide to Governor Dapo Abiodun, Babatunde Olaotan, disclosed this in an invitation letter sent out to All Progressives Congress leaders and supporters, on Wednesday.

However, Olaotan was silent on the reason for the President’s visit.

“You’re cordially invited by Governor Dapo Abiodun – CON to welcome His Excellency, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu – GCFR who will be paying us a visit tomorrow, 29th of June, 2023 in Ijebu-Ode and Abeokuta.

“All our party leaders, elders and supporters in Ogun East Senatorial District should converge at Awujale’s palace by 8:30am while our party leaders, elders, members and supporters in Ogun Central and Ogun West should gather at the Alake’s place by 10.30am,” it read.

Tinubu’s last visit to the state was on January 25, 2023, when his presidential campaign train stormed Abeokuta.

Tinubu at the rally alleged a plot by some forces to scuttle the general elections.

The former Lagos Governor said the fuel and naira crises which were being experienced during the period nationwide were part of the plot to sabotage the polls.

“This is a revolution. This election is a revolution. We shall take over from them. They don’t want an election to take place, but we won’t accept it. They want to hide under fuel scarcity to cause the crisis so that there won’t be an election.

“Whether there is fuel or not, we will vote. Without fuel, we shall vote. You know me very well, we are going to win, we are going to take over from them. We shall meet on election day. This election is a revolution, we are going to vote and we are going to win,’’ he said.

Tinubu is currently in Lagos to celebrate Eid-el-Kabir festival.
