“Every group agitating for Asiwa­ju Tinubu is free to do their own thing in whatever way they like. We are not the licensing authority. We are not also the clearinghouse. What we are saying is that as at now, no other group has contacted us at the leadership level of SWAGA’23. We are not involved in the one million-person march.
