Afenifere supports Obi because of hatred for Tinubu, their candidates never won election – Keyamo

Festus Keyamo, the spokesperson of the All Progressives Congress, APC presidential campaign council, has made jest of Peter Obi, the flag bearer of the Labour Party (LP), after he was openly supported by the leader of Afenifere, Ayo Adebanjo.

The minister, through a tweet on Tuesday, revealed that the candidates that Afenifere supported in the last two elections ended up as losers of the election.

He also said the Yoruba socio-cultural group was backing and endorsing Obi out of hatred for Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the APC.

“Propelled by a long-held animosity against Tinubu, in 2015, the Pa Ayo Adebanjo Afenifere endorsed Jonathan for President. In 2019, they endorsed Atiku. In both cases, they failed.

“Congrats, Peter Obi on this endorsement,” Keyamo wrote.

The Yoruba elder, Adebanjo, through his statement, had said: “the Igbo people of the south-east have never tasted presidency in Nigeria, and now that the power is due back in the south, equity demands that it be ceded to the Igbo.

“We cannot continue to demand that the Igbo people remain in Nigeria, while we at the same time continue to be brutally marginalize and exclude them from the power dynamics.”
