APC Campaign Council Speaks On Division In South-West Over Tinubu’s Candidacy
The Director of Media and Publicity for All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council, Bayo Onanuga, has denied reports that there is a division in the South West over the candidacy of Bola Tinubu.
Onanuga was reacting to a media report (not Naija News) that the endorsement of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, by the Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere, had created a divide among the Yoruba people. In a terse statement on his Facebook page on Tuesday, Onanuga described the report as false and a calculated attempt to cause disaffection in the South West. He said Afenifere’s endorsement of Obi is a ruse and was done by one man who has no electoral value. He said, “This story is not true. There is no division in the South-West over Tinubu’s candidacy. The Afenifere endorsement of LP’s candidate is a ruse. It was an endorsement by one man with no electoral value, either in his Ijebu Igbo village or Lagos.”

Meanwhile, Afenifere has said its endorsement of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, was a well-considered corporate decision.
Afenifere made this known in a statement issued on Monday by its Secretary General, Chief Sola Ebiseni while reacting to a statement credited to Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State.
