‘Presidency not about tribe’: Adebanjo campaigns for Obi in Ibadan
THE leader of pan Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere, Pa Ayo Adebanjo, yesterday, campaigned for the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.
The nonagenarian, who briefly addressed the crowd at the Adamasingba stadium in Yoruba, said he does not hate All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu but the 2023 Presidency is not about tribe.
“To critics saying this one (Obi) is Igbo, that one is Yoruba, the Presidency of Nigeria is not about Igbo or Yoruba but the whole of Nigeria,” he said.
In his speech, Obi paid “sincere respects” to the late sage, Obafemi Awolowo and other respected Yoruba leaders including Adebanjo whom he said stands for equity and fairness.
The LP candidate said, “What Adebanjo and Afenifere is standing for today is what will make the future of Nigeria, they are standing for equity, they are standing for fairness. Justice, equity and fairness should be the foundation of which we will build a united Nigeria.”
