Afenifere Leader To Tinubu, Osinbajo: Drop Your Presidential Bids

Chief Ayo Adebanjo, leader of Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere has stated that presidential aspirants from the South-West geopolitical zone including Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and former Lagos State Governor, Bola Tinubu, should forget their presidential ambitions.

According to the Afenifere leader, it was the turn of the South-East to produce Nigeria’s next President after the regime of the President Muhammadu Buhari, in May 2023.

According to him, it is an injustice for a South-West President to emerge in 2023 after ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo from Ogun State had ruled from 1999 to 2007; while Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, also from Ogun State, has been in government since May 2015 and would have spent eight years in power by May 2023.

The 94-year old elder statesman added that the South-South zone has also had a shot at both President and Vice-President positions with ex-President Goodluck Jonathan between 2007 and 2010 (as VP) and from 2010 to 2015 (as President).
