The leader of the Yoruba socio-cultural organization, Afenifere has declared that the organization will support the Labour Party candidate, Peter Obi in the forthcoming general election.
Pa Ayo Adebanjo, the leader of the group said he had lost confidence in Asiwaju Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Abubakar Atiku of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and the party won’t support any of them.
Pá Ayo Adebanjo insisted that Labor party candidate, Peter Obi can mend Nígeria , “It is only Peter Obi that can rule independently without the influence of these criminals in the Govt “, he said.
The 94 year old Yoruba elder and leader condemned the common adage in Yoruba language , “ Omo eni kii se idi bebere , kafi Ileke si idi Omo elomiran”, meaning ,a person can not have a child at home and decorate the bands of another person’s child “ , he said such adage should not be applied at this very dangerous moment the country is undergoing.
The leader also said that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the Jagaban , sold Buhari to over 200 million Nigerians knowing fully well that Buhari wouldn’t do nothing except completing the Fulani agenda , he said that Tinubu will only give continuity to Buhari’s incompetence .
When asked if the Igbos are trustworthy, he said that the Easterners are also Nígerians , they deserve to rule.
“I am sure Peter Obi will not subject himself to the Northerners like Tinubu and Atiku would do if elected“ – he said.
“We know Peter Obi very well , that’s why we endorsed him . He will not disappoint Nígerians , let’s put tribal differences apart and vote the right leader in”, the leader said .
When asked about the possibilities of the labor party candidate , Peter Obi , who also is an Igbo man , taking vengeance for what Yorubas did against the Igbos during the civil war , the leader said, “the problem between the Yorubas and Igbos came from the Fulanis, he said.
They promoted hatred in Nígeria. It is time we join hands and liberate Nígeria from them , it is time we elect a neutral person to rule us”, he said.
