A pan-Yoruba group, Isokan Yoruba, has said that the reason Afenifere is against the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, is because of personal issues and not his inability to rule Nigeria.
The president of the group, Prince Lateef Adekunle said Nigeria requires someone with a strong will and ideal to be at the helm of power.
He insisted that the former governor has the capability to move the country forward.
The group shared their stand on Tinubu’s presidential ambition on Sunday during the inauguration of the group’s executive members in Makoko Community in Lagos.
The group said, “Our father, Bola Tinubu, is a man with so many sterling qualities. He is a great leader who has impacted lives and has raised so many other great leaders .
“His records of performance in and out of office speak volumes. He did well as governor and he is doing well as a political leader.
“We believe in Tinubu and his aspiration and we appeal to all Nigerians to believe and trust in Tinubu’s presidency.
“Tinubu is a man who does not disappoint .Nigerians will not regret voting this great man come 2023 as he will deliver.”
Speaking further, Adekunle said that Tinubu had demonstrated that he is a lover of all religion and tribes due to his inclusive cabinet when he was governor
Adekunle said the group was surprised that some Yoruba groups, including Afenifere, were opposed to Tinubu becoming president.
He argued that the descision to oppose the APC flag bearer was not due to his inability to lead the country but because of some personal disagreements some Yoruba leaders were having with him.
