The Secretary-General of Afenifere, Pan-Yoruba socio-political group, Chief Sola Ebiseni, and a renowned member of the group, Pa Ayo Adebanjo, were conspicuously absent as Pa Reuben Fasoranti, and several South West leaders of the group on Sunday endorsed the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

Starnews Nigeria reports that Tinubu received endorsement of Afenifere during a meeting he had with the leaders of the organisation at Fasoranti’s residence in Akure, the Ondo State capital.

But Adebanjo, in a telephone interview with the Punch Newspaper on Sunday, said he was not supposed to be at the meeting in Akure, adding that his support for Peter Obi was already known.

He said, “In the first place, I was not supposed to be there. In the second place, we have made our position clear. Pa Fasoranti asked me if I was coming, I said if he asked me to come. But tell him what the position of Afenifere is. Once he has done that, I’m not going into any controversy about that.

Afenifere has taken a stance to support Obi. Any other splinter or rebel group… I’m not going into any controversy about that. I regard that as a diversion. What we are going to do now is see that we succeed at the election.”
