Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate for the All Progressives Congress (), has responded to Professor Banji Akintoye, the movement’s organizer for Yoruba nation self-determination.


In advance of the 2023 presidential election, Akintoye has charged Tinubu with harboring a self-serving agenda. He continued by saying that Yoruba voters won’t support Tinubu since he doesn’t care about them. The APC presidential contender responded by calling Akintoye’s remark nasty and unjustified.

Speaking through the Director of Media and Publicity of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, Bayo Onanuga, Tinubu vowed to resist any attempt to derail his presidential campaign. According to Tinubu, Akintoye’s comment was misplaced and divisive. The statement reads, “Our attention has been drawn to an unfortunate, misdirected, misplaced and divisive statement credited to Prof Banji Akintoye, in which his group threatened to pull the South West out of Nigeria

“We find it quite preposterous the Professor’s sweeping outlandish accusation that Bola Ahmed Tinubu is only pursuing his PERSONA interest in running for the presidency of Nigeria. Such a statement is malicious and unwarranted.

“It is pertinent to state that Tinubu is contesting for Nigeria’s presidency because of his readiness to render unflinching service to Nigerians and because of his abiding faith in a strong, united, and prosperous Nigeria where every man and woman, regardless of their ethnicity and religious beliefs, can be proud and prosperous.” He said most of the issues raised by Akintoye had been addressed in his Action Plan.
