According to Adeyemi, APC will conquer the entire six states within the region.
While speaking with newsmen in Ilorin shortly after the APC Presidential rally, Tuesday, Adeyemi said; “the emergence of Tinubu as the APC presidential flag-bearer for the 2023 general elections is a good omen for the party and the country”.
According to him, the unprecedented crowd in Ilorin and all the places visited shows that Asiwaju Tinubu is widely beloved and accepted within the country’s entire political spectrum.
“It also shows his level of deep interactions and acceptance not only within the ruling APC but across Nigeria.
He said: “This victory indicates that Tinubu as a candidate is good for Nigeria, as it will foster unity, love and understanding, among Nigerians.
“His electoral victory cut across all the six geopolitical zones; he had an impact in all the zones”.

Adeyemi, who sponsored over 1000 APC youths and women to Ilorin for the Presidential rally, urged the leadership and members of the APC to work in unison with a view to ensuring victory next year.
“I am calling on APC members and supporters who had registered and not collected their PVC to do so immediately as it remains the only tools needed for winning all elective positions”, he said.
