'PDP has adopted Tinubu as their leader'

Fayose claimed that the incumbent Nigerian leader controls the two main political parties in the country, adding that supporters of Peter Obi 'have gone to sleep'. Obi, a former governor of Anambra state, is the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the February 2023 election. His cheerers are popularly called 'Obidients'.

Fayose said speaking in pidgin English:

“As Nigeria come be now, na President Tinubu na him be the leader of APC, na him get PDP now.
“Even PDP governors, as dem dey fight, PDP governors dey carry their own fight come meet President Tinubu make he come settle it for them. That means he is controlling the two parties. Opposition, make una gear up o. Obidients sef, they don go bed, they don go sleep. God loves President Tinubu. PDP sef don adopt President Tinubu as their father and leader. God bless Nigeria.”
