The former governor of Lagos also visited the Alake of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Gbadebo, and others.
He reportedly told the monarchs and other stakeholders to engage others, particularly those that were yet to understand the importance of zoning the presidency to the Southwest region, to enlighten and gather them behind the idea before the next election in the country.
