Adebanjo Turned Afenifere To Personal Estate By Endorsing Peter Obi- Onanuga

The Director of Public Affairs of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Council, Bayo Onanuga, has said that the leader of Afenifere, Pa Ayo Adebanjo, has turned the social-cultural organization into his personal estate by endorsing the presidential candidate of Labour Party, Peter Obi.


Naijaonpoint reports that Onanuga argued that Adebanjo should know that the endorsing of Peter Obi as the preferred candidate for the Yoruba people was a personal opinion and not that of the members of the Yoruba people.


In a statement released on Saturday, Bayo, there was nowhere Afenifere as an apex South-West socio-cultural organization met and endorsed the former Anambra State governor as the chocie candidate of the Yoruba race.



The statement read, “Papa Ayo Adebanjo does not speak for Afenifere. He is free as an individual to support anyone he likes, in furtherance of his democratic right.

“We know for a fact that Baba has turned Afenifere into his personal estate as Acting Leader. We are also certain that there was nowhere Afenifere, as we know it, met and took a decision to adopt Mr. Peter Obi as a candidate for 2023 presidential election.”

Onanuga further added, ‘We respect the age of Baba Adebanjo but he can not turn Afenifere into his personal franchise for any political alliance.

“We are very much aware that Baba Reuben Fasoranti, the real leader of Afenifere had stated clearly that Pa Adebanjo has always been speaking for himself on many national issues using the name of the group.

“It is our well-considered position that Pa Adebanjo cannot appropriate Afenifere. Baba is just an individual who is free to support any politician of his choice. As an individual, he cannot equate himself with the socio-cultural and socio-political organization.”
