The Chairman, Tinubu/Shettima Independent Campaign Council, Rauf Olaniyan, has said that 90 per cent of votes in the South-West should be for the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, in the 2023 presidential election.
The immediate past deputy governor of Oyo State enjoined the electorate to ensure that the other contestant would get up to 25 per cent of the votes in the region.
Olaniyan said this during an interactive session with members of the APC Presidential Campaign Council Media and Publicity in Oyo State under the chairmanship of Kehinde Olaosebikan.
According to a statement made available to newsmen on Wednesday, the interactive session was aimed at formulating synergy between the Tinubu/Shettima Grassroots Independent Campaign Council that he founded and the PCC Media Team in Oyo.
“When people talk about Muslim-Muslim ticket, we know Tinubu won’t play ethnic or religious cards. No other presidential candidate should have 25 per cent votes in the entire South-West,” Olaniyan said.
He went on to state that his group would collaborate with the Olaosebikan-led team to promote the Tinubu/Shettima joint ticket.
He said, “Having had the opportunity to meet the members of your team, I must say that I am highly impressed with their calibre and their professional track record. I am also impressed by the wealth of experience and the depth of expertise you have managed to gather together here.

“I want to let you know that I will not bother to constitute a separate media team for our Grassroots Independent Campaign Council; this team of yours will serve as the bona fide media team of our campaign council.”
He urged the team not to forget to work for the Folarin/Okunola ticket to enable the APC win the Oyo State governorship election.
“I should also use this opportunity to impress on you and your team that there should be no discrimination in the level of support and commitment given to the promotion of the Tinubu/Shettima ticket and the Folarin/Okunlola ticket. In fact, all APC candidates all the way to our House of Assembly candidates are to be equally supported and promoted,” he charged.
On his part, Olaosebikan stated that in addition to the absolute commitment of his committee to securing a minimum of 95 per cent of Oyo votes for Tinubu, his committee would equally ensure that Oyo State scored 18 over 18 in the February 25 presidential election.
He noted that the victory of the APC in the first set of elections would make winning quite easy in the governorship and House of Assembly elections in Oyo.
“It is very glaring that APC will win all the elections in the next general elections in Oyo State. This is what we are working towards and it is realisable. On the February 25, it is going to be 18 for us and zero for the other parties.
“We will win the presidency, the three senatorial seats and all the 14 House of Representatives seats. We have the best candidates with profound credentials and antecedents,” he said.
