Ayo Adebanjo, leader of Afenifere, a Yoruba socio-political group has said that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s claim that it was his turn to rule Nigeria is an arrangement between himself and President Muhammadu Buhari, The Cable.
The elder statesman added that it was the turn of the Southeast to become president, stressing the Yoruba have had a fair share of the highest political seat in the country.
Adebanjo added that there would be no hope for Nigeria if the former Anambra governor does not emerge as the next president.
During the Labour Party (LP) presidential campaign in Lagos on Saturday, February 11, 2023, Adebanjo said:
“Presidency should be rotated. Yoruba had their turn when Obasanjo was in power. After him, Yar’Adua came into power. Then Jonathan. Then it went back to the north and Buhari came into power. “We have had our turn. Now, are we supposed to be there again?”
“I said it somewhere that if Obi does not come in as the president, forget Nigeria. The northern elders said I want to impose Obi on them. No! They want to impose a northerner on us but we say no!”
