Speaking with DAILY INDEPENDENT, Hon. Bosun Oladele, the National Secretary of SWAGA said the movement is happy because they know Tinubu has the popularity to win the presidential primary owing to his capacity and popularity across the country.
While lauding NEC for the decision, Oladele said the indirect primary option will deepen internal democracy and ensure peace in the party as no aspirant will feel cheated as with the case of consensus which can be imposed on unwilling members.

He said “We are happy as a movement that the party has decided based on the yearnings of the party members. The decision of the party will not only ensure fair play, it will further deepen internal democracy within the party. It will also mean that regardless of the outcome of the primary, everybody will be in one accord and there will be peace in the party. This is because nobody will feel cheated which will be the case if consensus is imposed on them”.

“We said it before that people should be allowed to test their capacity. We know the principal that we are following. When he came out to say that I have the capacity to lead Nigeria, it was not a frivolous statement. It was deliberately chosen and spoken”.
