“Our support of Peter Obi was based on the principle of justice. The presidency is not the personal property of the Yorubas and BAT is a product of the Afenifere.
“The group’s support has nothing to do with personalities but peace in the country. Afenifere is not apolitical with seasoned politicians within the ranks. The Nigerian state comes first and we want a nation with everyone having a sense of belonging.
“And since we want it to come to the South, no one region should corner it.”
