A socio-political and cultural group, Afenifere Renewal Group (ARG) has disclosed that the dispositions of frontline Yoruba leaders will largely determine the extent to which the South-West would go in its quest to clinch the Presidency in 2023.
The group argued that the region is well equipped for the task if only its leaders could forge a common front .
The ARG Publicity Secretary, Prince Michael Ogungbemi in a chat with journalists on Sunday urged the leaders to intensify their consultations with stakeholders from other zones ahead of the all-important assignment.
The socio -cultural and political body, also advocated for what it called “classical restructuring” of the country that would correct the highly entrenched lopsidedness in all zones and ethnic groups in phases.
He observed that the likes of Chief Bisi Akande,Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and Kayode Fayemi occupied strategic positions in the political space today in Nigeria urging them to use their good offices to nurture the agenda.
Ogungbemi posited that coming up with a formidable candidate would not be difficult if the leaders were working on the same page.
“About 2023, ARG had met and we had concluded that the Yoruba nation is ready to lead Nigeria. We have a blueprint that we can present to any presidential candidate that can bring a better democratic governance to all Nigerians.”
