the Afenifere leader spoke today in a chat with newsmen about his group's endorsement of Peter Obi.
Pan-Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere has opened up on why it endorsed the presidency of Peter Obi of Labour Party.
The leader of Afenifere, Pa Ayo Adebanjo had on Wednesday said that the Yoruba body will support the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, Mr. Peter Obi, in the 2023 poll.
In a chat with Vanguard, the Afenifere leader said the decision to support Obi is based on equity and fairness, adding that it will bring about peace in the country.
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.”
