Prominent Yoruba leaders assembled at the Historic Parliament Building yesterday to reject the presidency of President Goodluck Jonathan and to endorse the candidacy of the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate General Muhammadu Buhari.
According to reports, when General Alani Akinrinade (Rtd) gave a speech about the Yorubas giving total support for the APC candidate, the participants responded in unison;
It is Buhari or nobody else
Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Samuel Odulana Odugade, represented by High Chief Oyewole amongst other things said;
On 28 March, 2015, let us vote for Buhari
Various participants were given the opportunity to speak after the representative of Oba Samuel Odulana Odugade. Amongst tose who spoke include Senator Anthony Adefuye who said “only a bastard Yoruba will vote for Jonathan” and Senator Olabiyi Durojaiye.
Senator Ayo Fasanmi said;
At this point, we Yorubas should know where we are going. PDP is distributing money to earn wrong votes. Come May 29, we will be happy when Buhari becomes the president of the nation.
Why would Jonathan appoint ministers two months to the end of his term if not that they want to use all means to steal what is left in the coffer; that is if anything is left? By God’s grace, I, Senator Ayo Fasanmi will vote for Buhari. May 29, Buhari will be sworn in as our president.
