A social-political group, Yoruba Ronu has warned the supporters of the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi to desist from using violence and hate speech to promote their candidate.
Chairman of the group, Chief Diran Iyantan issued the warning in Ondo while speaking to newsmen.
According to him, it is important the group quit their “habit of forcing their candidate on the people of the South-West.”
He called on Obi to speak to call his supporters to order.
He said that the group is fighting the cause of the Yoruba people worldwide, adding they can no longer condone the unwholesome attack on Asiwaju.
Iyantan said, “Due to the manner Peter Obi’s supporters were going about fiercely forcing their candidate on the people of the South-West.
“Who have turned the South-West states into an enclave of fierce opposition to the candidacy of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC)”.
“As a socio-political group fighting the cause of the Yoruba people worldwide, we can no longer condone the unwholesome attack on Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu by Obi’s supporters in Lagos, other major cities in South-West and online.
“The way they’re going about this election is like Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is the only candidate they’re contesting against and will do anything to demean his integrity in this election.
“Obi’s supporters do not have any need to abuse anyone, spread hate speeches or even incite people against others.
“Obi’s supporters continue to demean the achievements of Tinubu in Lagos as if it’s not the same success stories of Tinubu as the former Governor of Lagos State that secured Lagos and helped propel their businesses that made them see Lagos as their homes.”
