- “Tinubu’s office is illegitimate, he shouldn’t be there”
Chief Ayo Adebanjo, leader of pan-Yoruba group, Afenifere, has refused to recognize the Tinubu’s administeration describing the government as non-existent.
Speaking on an Arise TV interview, Pa Adebanjo declined assessing Tinubu,s performanc. The Afenifere leader held that the presidential election is not concluded yet, with the ongoing Presidential Election Petition Tribunal. He stated that:
“Afenifere’s stance, for now, is not to comment on Tinubu’s administration because we believe that the elections are not completed yet; it’s still in progress, that is why we are in court, so commenting on someone who is there and who we don’t believe should be there until the final decision of the court will be probative and reprobative.
“We are not talking about his ability, we are talking about the process of his getting there, which is flawed. How can you build something on nothing, he is enjoying a lacuna, nothing is settled until it’s finally settled, that’s our stance.
“I refuse to comment on somebody that is not existing yet until the final arbiter of the court, our party may be wrong but that is our own stance. I can’t recognize him in an office that I believe doesn’t exist.”
