Ayo Adebanjo, the leader of the pan Yoruba socio-political group Afenifere, has said Nigerians should forget the country called Nigeria if Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, failed to win the 2023 presidential poll.
He made this known at a southern and middle belt leaders forum in Abuja, Federal Capital Territory. Adebanjo, who has been a strong supporter of Peter Obi, stated if the Labour Party Presidential candidate loses there would be no opportunity for a non-Christian and a non-northerner to be president again in Nigeria.
Adebanjo stated that “if Obi does not win, forget a country called Nigeria.”
According to him, “They are making all sorts of devices to ensure that power remains in a particular part of the country. That’s why they are not even supporting the candidate of their own party.
“We will give it what it takes. It is either bend or break. If Obi does not win, forget a country called Nigeria.
“If we lose this election, there will be no opportunity for a non-Christian, a non-northerner to be president again,” he said.
He further said voting Peter Obi into the office would show that Nigeria values ethnic and religious inclusion.
It was recalled that Adebanjo had in July 2022 first declared support for Peter Obi in an interview with an online radio.
The Yoruba leader had said, “It is only Peter Obi that can rule independently without the influence of these criminals in the government. Tinubu will only give continuity to Buhari’s incompetence.
“We know Peter Obi very well, that’s why we endorsed him. He will not disappoint Nigerians, let’s put tribal differences apart and vote the right leader in.”
“Am I not the first to say that for equity and justice and for peace, it’s the South-East? I don’t know any other candidate from the South-East other than Obi and I have been very specific about Obi.” He furthered.
