Ayo Adebanjo, the leader of the Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere, has said it only brainwashed people that think other regions need the north to produce a president.
This is as he made a call for the presidency to go to the South-East based on equity.
Adebanjo said, “Some southerners must have been brainwashed to believe that only the north can make anybody president of Nigeria but I don’t believe that. The South West has produced the president, the South-South has produced and the north is completing eight years by next year. So, it must come back to the south and when that happens, justice, equity and fairness demand that it should go to the South East Igbo. So, to live together must be on agreeable terms. You can’t deny a prodigal son his right because he is prodigal.
“The Yoruba don’t believe in dishonesty, that is why I am supporting Peter Obi. How can we be together when a significant unit is being cheated?”
