Chief Ayo Adebanjo The leader of the pan-Yoruba socio-political Organisation, Afenifere, Ayo Adebanjo said he is now good friends with former President Olusegun Obasanjo as a result of their mutual support for the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi.
Speaking during the visit, Obasanjo said, “What I believe and what I believe that Chief Ayo Adebanjo believes is not ethnic, sectional or religious, it is Nigeria and Nigerians.
When I go out and people thank me, I say, ‘What are you thanking me for?’
The only thing that my senior brother (pointing to Adebanjo) hasn’t done is that he hasn’t shed his blood, but he has gone to prison.
His response was also greeted by laughter from the audience.
It was the question of Nigeria and we were able to demonstrate the importance of Obi’s victory in the election.
