In another development, Chief Ayo Adebanjo, Afenifere leader, earlier stated that the group would not back Bola Tinubu and Atiku Abubakar for the 2023 presidency.

The Afenifere leader said the group stood on justice and fairness and believed in true federalism and the Federal Character principle.

Adebanjo came under criticism for rejecting the endorsement of Tinubu by southwest leaders.

The leaders, including chieftains of Afenifere, Yoruba Council of Elders and other associations, said Adebanjo, who had in his private capacity endorsed Labour Party (LP) presidential Peter Obi, was on his own.
