According to Governor Akeredolu who described Tinubu as a ‘leader’ in the southern region of the country, he and Tinubu’s loyalists were waiting for his return to the country to determine their next line of action.
He said was awaiting the arrival of Tinubu in order to take critical decisions ahead of 2023.
Governor Akeredolu stated this during an interview on Arise Television on Sunday.

While stressing that his recent visit to the former Governor Lagos State in London had nothing to do with the 2023 election.
On whether he would support Tinubu as Presidential candidate of the APC in 2023, Governor Akeredolu said only the party where he is a member would decide that.
His words, “APC is a party. APC will decide who the candidate will be. I have said it several times. I’m going nowhere. If I leave APC, I am going back to my chamber. For me, whatever APC decides,I will follow.
“We went to London because It was important for us to go and see for ourselves. How he’s doing.
“He’s the Capo for us here. By the time he comes, we can make some serious decisions.”
