The Pan Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere, yesterday declared its support for the aspiration of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Mr. Peter Obi for the 2023 presidential election.
The Leader of Afenifere, Pa Ayo Adebanjo, made the group’s position known on Tuesday during an interview on the radio.
Adebanjo, speaking on the programme: “Yoruba Gbode,” said only Obi can rule Nigeria independently, with the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and that of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, having baggages to carry.
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.
“None of them loves Nigeria.
“Easterners are also Nigerians.
“They deserve to rule.
“I am sure Peter Obi will not subject himself to the northerners like Tinubu and Atiku would do if elected.”
