The leader of the Pan-Yoruba socio-cultural organisation, Afenifere, Pa Ayo Adebanjo has described Tinubu's declaration as winner of the 2023 election, as a daylight robbery. Pa Adebanjo made this remark while reacting to the conduct, collation and outcome of the presidential election by INEC on Friday.
While speaking on Arise Television, the Yoruba leader said Tinubu's declaration was similar to what happened during the interim government of Shonekan. He went on to state that the declaration was only temporary, backing the Labour Party Presidential Candidate, Peter Obi to challenge the process in court.
He said, "As for that election, there was no result. What they have done to Tinubu is like what they did to the Interim Government of Shonekan. It was a pyrrhic victory allowed. As the leader (presidential candidate) of the Labour Party, Peter Obi said, we will prove it in court."
“This is a daylight robbery. The whole country supported you (INEC Chairman) to amend the Electoral Law and you promised to transmit the result by electoral means. You now went back to what we have fought against. What a shame! This government is a disaster.”
