Tinubu is our Capo – Akeredolu

Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, Governor of Ondo State and Chairman of the Southern Governors’ forum, referred to All Progressive Congress (APC) National Leader Bola Tinubu  as a “Capo.”


Akeredolu, who described Tinubu as a leader in the south of the country, said he was looking forward to the arrival of the APC leader in order to make critical decisions ahead of 2023.

During an interview with Arise Television on Sunday, South West Governors’ Forum Chairman Akeredolu stated this.

While making it clear that his recent trip to London to see the former Lagos State Governor had nothing to do with the 2023 election.

Tinubu has my support

Governor Akeredolu refused to say whether he would support Tinubu as the All Progressive Congress (APC)’s presidential candidate in 2023. He said the decision would be made by the party he belongs to.


“The APC is a political party. APC will choose the candidate. My point has been reiterated numerous times. I’m not going anywhere. If I leave All Progressive Congress (APC), I’ll be returning to my chamber. Whatever the All Progressive Congress (APC)  decides, I’ll go along with it no matter what.

“We went to London because we wanted to see for ourselves what the city had to offer. What the heck is going on with him these days. For the time being, he’s serving as our Capo. We’ll have time to think things through when he arrives.

No one has the right to expel me from APC. – Ewang

A former military administrator for Ogun and Rivers states, Group Capt. Sam Ewang insists he cannot be expelled from the All Progressives Congress because of his political activities (APC).

An official statement dated September 18, 2021, signed by APC Caretaker Committee Chairman Dr. Ita Udosen and Caretaker Committee Secretary Mr. Augustine Ekanem announced the suspension of a number of party members, including Group Captain Ewang, Hon. Eseme Eyibo, and others, for various offenses against the party.

According to a document titled “An Annexure to SEC/SWC Resolutions of Wednesday, September 15, 2021,” Ewang and 87 other litigants have violated Article 21 Section D and Subsection (v) of the party constitution ( October 2014 as amended).

In response to the statement, Ewang told DAILY POST in Uyo that his alleged suspension is an ‘act of impossibility’ in an interview published on Sunday


He claims that those responsible are ex-members of the party, and they will remain ex-members.

‘Anyone who says that someone will be fired or suspended is a looney. Just tell them what I said about the individual being a lunatic. Naturally, you are aware that this is not a realistic scenario.

“These are people who have already been fired because they don’t know what to do; in their profession, they have never done well. They’ve never been successful in public office because they lack leadership skills.

When asked if he’d heard of the statement making the rounds online, Ewang responded, “I’m not interested in whatever is trending.” They’re just hanging on to see if they can get by. They’ve been expelled from the group and the party as a whole.”
