Pa Ayo Adebanjo, the leader of pan-Yoruba socio-cultural organisation, Afenifere, has said the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, will continue the incompetence of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.).
Adebanjo said this in a tweet on Friday, adding that he threw his weight behind Labour Party’s Peter Obi because he won’t disappoint Nigerians.
“Ahmed Tinubu will only give continuity to Buhari’s incompetence. We know Peter Obi very well, that is why we endorse him. He will not disappoint Nigerians, let us put our tribal difference apart and vote right leaders,” he wrote.
“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,” Adebanjo had said earlier.
Tinubu and Afenifere have a long history. In 1999, the former contested and won the Lagos State governorship election under the Alliance for Democracy, a political party backed by Afenifere. He was re-elected in 2003 under the same party.
But in 2015, Afenifere endorsed Goodluck Jonathan against Tinubu’s APC.
