The leader of the Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere, Chief Ayo Adebanjo has accused the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu of bribing some people to create the impression that there is conflict in Afenifere.
Tinubu, who met the group’s national chairman, Pa Reuben Fasoranti, and other leaders in Akure, Ondo State, submitted an 80-page Action Plan paper outlining how he wants to address the country’s economic challenges and other concerns.
During the visit, Fasoranti stated that Tinubu previously requested his blessings in April, but that he had advised him to first obtain the party’s ticket before asking for his blessings.
Reacting to this development, Pa Ayo Adebanjo, in a tweet on Monday, said he would not entertain those who support Tinubu’s candidacy because he had thrown his weight behind Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Obi.
“Tinubu bribed some people with little money to put up a show that there’s a division in Afenifere. I won’t engage him and those he gave money to because we have already made our position clear that Peter Obi is our candidate,” he tweeted.
