Let us have a Yoruba president in 2023, -Afenifere


A socio-cultural and political group, the Yoruba Patriots Movement (YPM) and a pan-Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere, said yesterday that the Southwest should produce the next president.

They advised All Progressives Congress (APC) members to honour the pre-2015 general election agreement for a Yoruba president to ensure fairness and equity.

Speaking yesterday in Ibadan at a news conference heralding a Yoruba summit tagged: “Yoruba nation yesterday, today and tomorrow”, the YPM National Coordinator, Mr. Oladosu Oladipo, said anything apart from Yoruba president in 2023 would not be tolerated.

He said: “You cannot be a good Nigerian without being a good Yoruba man. Our fair share must be given to us in Nigeria. This summit is not partisan but political. It is our turn to produce president in 2023. In fairness, power should return to the Southwest.”

The Secretary-General of Afenifere led by Sen. Biyi Durojaiye, Mr. Bayo Aina, said the Yoruba have realized that it is only the APC that can give Yoruba candidate a ticket.
