Recall that Afenifere under Adebanjo had in September endorsed Obi for the presidency.

Also speaking at the rally, Obi thanked Afenifere and its leader, Chief Adebanjo, for their support.

He said that the pan-Yoruba sociopolitical group has shown that it is standing for Nigeria’s future.

“Let me tell you what Ayo Adebanjo and Afenifere are standing for today is what will make the future of Nigeria.

“They are standing for equity; they are standing for justice, they are standing for fairness, and only equity, justice, and fairness will be the foundation of which we will build a united Nigeria,” Obi said.
