Leader of pan-Yoruba group, Afenifere, Ayo Adebanjo, has made it clear that he would not vote for the presidential candidate of the APC, Bola Tinubu, nor that of the PDP Atiku Abubakar, but would rather go all-in for the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, in the 2023 elections.
Adebanjo, while speaking on an online radio programme, Yoruba Gbode, on Tuesday, said that Peter Obi would “rule independently, adding that he has lost confidence in the presidential candidates of the APC and PDP – Bola Tinubu and Atiku Abubakar.
“It is only Peter Obi that can rule independently without the influence of these criminals in the government. Tinubu will only give continuity to Buhari’s incompetence.
“We know Peter Obi very well, that’s why we endorsed him. He will not disappoint Nigerians, let’s put tribal differences apart and vote the right leader in.”
Also, in a separate interview with Vanguard, Adebanjo, said the decision to support Obi is based on equity and fairness, adding that it will bring about peace in the country.
Adebanjo said: “Yes we have endorsed Peter Obi. My reason for supporting him is because based on equity and justice the presidency should go to the South-East. That is what I have been saying. I have not changed my position on that. If you want peace and tranquillity in this country; if you want the country to be united, we must do the right thing by ensuring the presidency goes to the South-East. I have no reason to change my stand.”
