Pa Ayo Adebanjo, the leader of the Pan-Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere said that the great Yoruba body have endorsed Peter Obi, the flagbearer of Labour Party for 2023 presidential election.
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 tranquility 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,” as he was interacting with Vanguard.
Adebanjo said he has lost confidence in Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) flag bearer, and Atiku Abubakar, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Pa Ayo Adebanjo said, “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.
“Easterners are also Nigerians , they deserve to rule.”
