he apex Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere has denied the purported endorsement of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
The group’s national publicity secretary, Comrade Jare Ajayi, yesterday, said it will meet with other presidential candidates to hear what they have to offer Nigerians.
“The leader of Afenifere Pa Reuben Fasoranti did not send for the All Progressives Congress APC presidential candidate Asiwaju Bola Tinubu,” he said.
“It was Tinubu that sought to have an audience with the Afenifere leader, and Fasoranti extended an invitation to all Yoruba leaders that graced the occasion.”
