The leader of the pan-Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere, Pa Ayo Adebanjo, has endorsed the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, for the 2023 election.
Adebanjo said Obi is the only presidential candidate that can rule independently.
The elder statesman, who stated this while speaking on Yoruba Gbode, an online radio programme, said the South East deserves to lead the country.
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.
“Easterners are also Nigerians , they deserve to rule.”
