Pro-Tinubu Groups Spread Tentacles Over Oshodi-isolo LGA
Groups committed to mobilising support for the presidential ambition of All Progressives Congress National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, have hit the ground in Oshodi-Isolo Local Government Area.
The local government includes Isolo Local Council Development Area and Ejigbo Local Council Development Area.
The groups include Yooba Agenda 2023, I Stand With Asiwaju 2023, Asiwaju Reloaded Project 2023, APC Team Grassroots Voice of Asiwaju, National Coalition of Tinubu Support Groups and the South West Agenda for Asiwaju.
While Mr. Ajayi Taiwo coordinates Yoruba Agenda 2023, Mr. Humble Smart handles I Stand with Asiwaju 2023.
Other coordinators and their groups are Kayode Salako, Asiwaju Reloaded 2023; Remi Williams, APC Team Grassroots Voice of Ashiwaju; Barrister Kayode Ademiluyi organises the National Coalition of Tinubu Support Groups.
Although the South West Agenda for Asiwaju 2023, better known as SWAGA features prominent politicians who have been crisscrossing the South West mobilising traditional rulers and key stakeholders, it is yet to set up local government chapters.
SWAGA is co-ordinated at the national level by Hon. Oye Ojo, a former House of Representatives member.
The Remi Williams-led group intensified its meeting two weeks ago with representatives from the 20 wards which make up the local government.
The group resolved to appoint patrons to raise funds for mobilising voters and propagating the campaign to make Tinubu president.
While these groups meet physically to strategise, other groups are more active on WhatsApp and other social media platforms.
These include the Asiwaju Mega Initiative, the Jagabans, South West Zone Tinubu NCTSG, the Asiwaju Distinguished Ambassadors and I Stand with Tinubu group.
On Facebook, groups such as Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu (B.A.T.) National Forum, Asiwanu Grassroots Foundation and Hope 2023 Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu for President are using the platform to garner support for their mentor.
Already individual organisations are networking to create mega groups.
For instance, APC Team Grassroots Voice for Asiwaju is a member of the Coalition of Tinubu Support Groups.
Its leader, Remi Williams also coordinates the coalition on Oshodi-Isolo while Wale Fashola, another member coordinates the coalition in Ejigbo LCDA.
While it maintains its headquarters at Isolo, the coalition has opened chapters in 10 other council areas including Eti-Osa, Yaba, Kosofe, Ikorodu North.
On it’s part, the social media influencer Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu National Forum, coordinated by Mr. Seyi Bamigbade has 85,000 members on Facebook including residents of Oshodi-Isolo LGA.
Recently, it flagged off a volunteers registration campaign to recruit millions of voters nationwide.
It competes with the Asiwaju Grassroots Foundation that seeks to mobilise voters for the presidential ambition of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
