The leader of the Yoruba socio- political organization Afenifere, Ayo Adebanjo has revealed the reasons why the group will not support Bola Tinubu or any other Presidential candidates in the upcoming election, Thecitypulsenews reports.
Adebanjo claimed that until the constitution is changed, Afenifere will not support Tinubu or any other candidate in the 2023 election.
He went on to say that until the country is restructured, the group will not line up behind any of the presidential candidates.
Adebanjo, speaking to journalists in Lagos, stressed that Tinubu has the legal right to run for president in 2023.
When asked about Tinubu’ s presidential ambition, Adebanjo said: ” Your man has every right to contest the election, he is not disabled, so what is the big deal about that? ”
” We are not contending who is the President now because we don’ t believe in the constitution that we have. Until that constitution is changed, then we will talk about where the President will be.
” We have no candidate now until that constitution is changed because I don’ t want to go on an uncharted sea that is the implication now.
” You must believe in the constitution before you say I want to be a part of it. I am not going to be part of the constitution or election that operates a military constitution. That’ s the bone of contention and which President Buhari himself has not disputed. The constitution we have is a military one. “
