"I cannot recognize him in an office that does not exist; get that thing clear."

The Afenifere Leader, who spoke during an interview on Arise Television, insisted that President Tinubu of the ruling APC did not defeat Peter Obi during the February 25, 2023 presidential election.

He insisted that Tinubu is not his president because the process that led to his emergence was marred with irregularities.

According to him, the former Lagos governor should only be regarded as the president when the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPC) determines the petitions against him.
