Leader of the Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere, Pa Ayo Adebanjo on Friday claimed that the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi scored over one million votes in Lagos State.
Adebanjo further stated that the president-elect, Bola Tinubu will be sent away from the position, by some people who are praising him for winning the 2023 presidential election.
He called on Nigerians not to expect much from President Muhammadu Buhari on the issue, claiming that President himself entered the office through fraudulent means.
Speaking in an interview on Arise TV, Adebanjo said, “The result in Lagos has not been released. The whole thing was mismanaged. We scored over one million votes in Lagos and they altered all the results that belonged to Obi.
“That’s why they’ve not released it. Why are they reluctant to prove it? You can tell the marine that you won the election and all that. What do you expect Buhari to say?
“He came into office through a fraudulent election in 2015. Many of you might have forgotten, the electoral commissioner in Kano, who refused to cooperate with the rigging in Kano, was burnt alive with his family and till today no arrest and you want that kind of person to do justice.
“He doesn’t know justice. He has been living in injustice and all sorts of shenanigans. Do you want him to come out to say something is unfair? Has he been fair in his administration?
“Tinubu will be another Shonekan. He’ll be sent away by some of those people rejoicing now. This is not about Yoruba and Igbo.
“Is the Presidency about Yoruba and Igbo? It’s a national matter… Most of them came into the office through the rigging. All the governors, how many of them are fair?”
