The group’s Media Team Chairman, Tijani Oluwadamilare, said even though a lot of things had yet to be put in place as the group had not been able to mobilise enough funds for the walk, members and other participants, were ready for the walk because of their faith and love for Tinubu.
“Hundreds of people are ready to participate in the walk on Saturday (today).
We all remain unshaken. Many of those we had hoped would render financial assistance to us are not forthcoming; most of them keep blaming (the) recession for their inability to provide financial assistance as earlier promised. Despite all these, we all look forward to having the walk,” he said.
Tijani said that the group had chosen to organise the loyalty walk to show solidarity and support for Tinubu, and to send a message to everyone concerned that never again would Yoruba people stand and watch any of their respected leaders being ridiculed.
“We all know what happened to past Yoruba leaders such as Chief Obafemi Awolowo, who were subjected to diverse forms of ridicule. We do not want this to happen again, especially not to the person of Tinubu who is a Yoruba leader now,” he said.
