Why Buhari Should Not Hand Over To Yoruba In 2023 – Pa Adebanjo

  • Pa Adebanjo backs Igbo Presidency in 2023.

A factional leader of the Pan-African Yoruba group, Afenifere, Ayo Adebanjo, says it would be unfair for the South West to get the presidency in 2023 instead of the South East.

The elder statesman said the South East was the only region in the country that has not produced the president and warned that no part of Nigeria should be left out.

Pa Adebanjo’s statement is coming at the time many pundits give contrary opinions on which region President Muhammadu Buhari should hand over to when he ends his tenure in 2023.

According to him,

“Whoever is saying it (that power should go back to the South West) is deceiving himself and the people,” Adebanjo told Vanguard.

“How do you want to keep the country and say a section of the country should not be President?”

“The West has done, the South has done, the North has done several times, then you want it to go back to the West again, and you want the country to be together, and you don’t want IPOB to talk, why are we deceiving ourselves?

“There is no honesty in it; there is no principle in it. Anybody who is saying power should come back to the South-West (2023) is an enemy of Nigeria’s unity.

“If we are sincere about keeping the country together under a federal system, it is illegal and immoral for that Constitution to exclude an important unit of the federation. It is not a question of whether you like it or not.”
