Peter Obi remains our candidate, Tinubu bribing Afenifere leaders to cause division – Adebanjo


The leader of the pan-Yoruba socio-cultural organisation, Afenifere, Ayo Adebanjo says Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) bribed some members of the organisation to cause division within, ahead of the 2023 general election.

Mr Adebanjo said he’s not ready to engage Mr Tinubu, whom he accused of inducing a few members of Afenifere to curry favour in his preparation for the polls, People Gazette reports.

He insisted that Afenifere had already endorsed Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) for the next year’s election based on principle.

“Tinubu bribed some people with little money to put up a show that there’s a division in Afenifere. I won’t engage him and those he gave money to because we have already made our position clear that Peter Obi is our candidate. Peter Obi as president will serve our interest better than Tinubu,” Mr Adebanjo said.
