Ekiti state SWAGA begins mobilisation for 2022 gubernatorial Election.
The National Chairman of the Southwest Agenda for Tinubu (SWAGA), Senator Dayo Adeyeye, has said the group has begun aggressive mobilisation of voters for the Ekiti governorship election holding next year.
He said SWAGA, a political group in the All Progressives Congress (APC), was fast gaining wider acceptability among the people, a few months after its inauguration.
Adeyeye spoke at the weekend in Ado-Ekiti while addressing a crowd of APC members at the conclusion of the mobilisation effort organised by SWAGA across the 16 local governments.
The APC chieftain said the group had started aggressive mobilisation of voters across the state, to save the party from a likely defeat in the June 16, 2022 governorship election.
The ex-minister said: “SWAGA is a movement that has taken over Ekiti. If they conduct any primary election for the governorship in Ekiti, SWAGA will win.
“They said it is direct primary. This makes us happy. They won’t be able to rig anything. Let us begin grassroots politicking. Don’t be afraid of anybody.”
The state Chairman of SWAGA, Senator Anthony Adeniyi (SAN), said the large turnout of APC members had confirmed the group’s acceptability in Ekiti State.
He berated those branding SWAGA members as “renegades and incurable troublemakers” within the APC, describing them as ignorant people who knew nothing about party politics.”
