Elder statesman and leader of the Yoruba apex socio-political organization, Afenifere, Chief Ayo Adebanjo, has insinuated that a chieftain of the All Progressive Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s rumoured presidential ambition would not enjoy President Muhammadu Buhari’s support.
Tinubu is believed to have the desire to run for the presidency on APC’s platform in 2023.
However, Adebanjo in an interview he granted New Telegraph, insinuated that Buhari would thwart Tinubu’s rumoured ambition saying the president was playing trick on the former Lagos governor.
He said, “Buhari knows that he is deceiving Tinubu except that Tinubu doesn’t know or is stupid not to know because there is enough evidence. He has become so paranoid of becoming president that he couldn’t see the handwriting on the wall. Is APC one? From what you know, which of the state of the federation is APC united to say this is going to be our candidate? The party will only be united in keeping the presidency in the North.”
