The spokesperson for the All Progressives Congress Campaign Council, Festus Keyamo, has advanced reasons why the acting leader of Pan-Yoruba group, Afenifere, endorsed the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
Keyamo in an exclusive interview with The PUNCH, stated that Adebanjo endorsed Peter Obi out of his “sheer hatred for Asiwaju.”
The Minister of State for Labour said, “The real reason for Afenifere’s wrangling is Pa Adebanjo, who rushed to endorse a candidate without proper consultation in the organisation to which he belongs.
“The fact that you are made deputy leader does not make you a dictator. I had listened to him say in one of his interviews, ‘That’s not how we do it.’ How do they do it, that one person sits down and takes a profound decision like that without talking to anyone?
“Pa Adebanjo should tell the whole of Nigeria who and with whom he spoke within Afenifere, who gave him the green light and endorsed Obi? It is just bias and sheer hatred for Asiwaju. That’s all. That was exactly what pushed him to make a mistake.” he added.
