Pa Ayo Adebanjo, the founder of the pan-Yoruba sociopolitical organisation Afenifere, has endorsed Peter Obi as the Labour Party’s nominee for president in the 2023 election.
The only candidate for president who can rule independently, according to Adebanjo, is Obi. The elder statesman said that the South East deserves to lead the nation while speaking on the online radio programme Yoruba Gbode. According to Adebanjo, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu will only maintain the incompetence of Buhari’s administration.
He said, “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. “Tinubu sold Buhari to over 200 million Nigerians for his own selfish interest of wanting to rule after Buhari. None of them loves Nigeria.
