The Osun State Governor, Adegboyega Oyetola, has predicted that the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the 2023 general elections, Bola Tinubu, would get over 1 million votes from Osun.
Oyetola spoke in his campaign office in Osogbo where he received APC youths that participated in a march tagged ‘Osun Youth March for Tinubu/Shettima 2023’ on Thursday.
The youths staged a walk across major streets in Osogbo, asking the electorate to support Tinubu’s bid to be president in the next general elections.
The Osun governor, who expressed surprise at the large turnout of youth, even when the campaign has not commenced, assured that the APC candidate would run a youth-friendly administration if elected.

He said, “I want to commend the leadership of the supporters of Tinubu. Your demonstration today has given me assurance that Osun is for APC in 2023. There is no shaking for us at all.
“The government of Asiwaju (Tinubu) is the government of the youth. He is here to serve Nigerians. He has plans for education, agriculture, infrastructure, social development and many more. You will be surprised the way he will tackle insecurity.
“I am certain that over one million votes are assured for Tinubu in Osun. Our campaigns will be youth oriented.”
Speaking earlier, the Osun APC youth leader, Goke Akinwemimo, who led the march, said the group would mobilise one million votes for Tinubu in the 2023 poll and urged members of the party to work hard for the actualisation of the project.
