Chief spokesperson of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign council, Festus Keyamo has warned Peter Obi not to get his hopes high on account of the endorsement he received from a Yoruba Socio-cultural group, Afenifere.
According to Keyamo, the group is infamous for its history of supporting candidates who go ahead and lose at polls.
Keyamo sent out the cold reminder on Tuesday, a day after Ayo Adebanjo, leader of Afenifere, a Yoruba socio-cultural group, explained why his organisation is supporting Obi.
Keyamo, in a tweet, said the presidential candidates Afenifere backed in 2015 and 2019 failed at the polls.
He congratulated Obi in advance of him extending the string of failure peculiar to endorsements from the group.
“Propelled by a long-held animosity against Tinubu, in 2015, the Pa Ayo Adebanjo Afenifere endorsed Jonathan for President – vanguardngr.com/2015/01/afenif…. In 2019, they endorsed Atiku – vanguardngr.com/2019/02/electi…. In both cases, they failed,” he tweeted.
“Congrats, Peter Obi on this endorsement.”
