Speaking during separate visits to the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi III, in Oyo town and the new Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Lekan Balogun, in Ibadan, on Sunday, February 20, Tinubu said: “No amount of intimidation can stop me. I am ready to get dirty. I am out to become President of Nigeria. We are at a crossroad.”
At the palace of Alaafin, Tinubu said: “I cannot embark on a project of such magnitude without seeking for prayers and cooperation of traditional rulers. I am here today to inform our fathers of my decision to run for the position of the president of this country in 2023. What I need from our highly referred traditional rulers is their prayers and cooperation.
