Afenifere speaks on alliance with Obasanjo, 2019 election

The pan-Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere, has dissociated itself from former president,Olusegun Obasanjo’s movement now African Democratic Congress (ADC).

This was disclosed by Afenifere chieftain, Chief Ayo Adebanjo, while speaking with Sun.

Adebanjo said the group does not believe in Obasanjo’s movement owing to the fact that the former president is one of the problems to be solved in Nigeria.

He said, “Who are the people behind the Third Force? If you are referring to Obasanjo’s Movement, I don’t believe in it because Obasanjo himself is part of the problems to be solved.

“Although he gave a good analysis of incompetence of Buhari, it does not mean he has a solution to it. Some of us are not Mumus to be deceived by any cheap language.

“What has Obasanjo accused Buhari of doing that he was not guilty of? Let us look for young, bright men with ideas to organise the country to a better system of government.

” It is his constitutional right to adopt African Democratic Congress (ADC) as a political platform,You too can form your own party. My objection to his idea does not mean that I am objected to his right to form a party. It is his constitutional right. It is left for the electorate to consider him worthy. That is the whole essence of democracy.

“Obasanjo has a right to form his own political party and Ayo Adebanjo has the right to object to it. We are all exercising our constitutional rights.

“Afenifere is not involved in anything with him. That is what I am affirming and telling you.”

Speaking on the possibility of the All Progressive Congress, APC, retaining power in 2019 election, Adebanjo added “What do you think yourself when those in government of the day are not agreeing on what to do? Does the ruling party itself agree?

“Those who want to rule us again are in violence among themselves as to who should be on their platform for election.

“They can’t decide their internal democracy and they want to decide for the country. Somebody whose household is in tatters wants to hold the country in unity.”

” I had said it before loud and clear that if Buhari loves this country and he is sincere about keeping this country together in peace (underlined), he should restructure the country and give each state its autonomy. If there is no hidden agenda about him being in office, if all these allegations against him are not correct, he should do it.”
