Ayo Adebanjo, leader of the Yoruba socio-cultural organisation has thrown his support behind Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP).
Mr Adebanjo made this known on Tuesday while speaking on Yoruba Gbode, an online radio programme.
He said he has lost confidence in the two major political parties and that the former Anambra governor is the only candidate that can govern without external influence.
“It is only Peter Obi that can rule independently without the influence of these criminals in the government,” he asserted. “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.
“Tinubu sold Buhari to over 200 million Nigerians for his own selfish interest of wanting to rule after Buhari. None of them loves Nigeria.
“Easterners are also Nigerians, they deserve to rule. I am sure Peter Obi will not subject himself to the northerners like Tinubu and Atiku would do if elected,” he added.
