Aláàfin of Oyo Rejects Atiku, Said PDP is Dead
The Aláàfin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi refuses to support Atiku Abubakar and he said PDP is a dead party that cannot take us anywhere.
The supreme king of Oyo made this statement during a visit of the wife of the PDP presidential candidate, Titi Abubakar to his Palace in Oyo to solicit support for her husband, Atiku.
Aláàfin categorically said that the Yoruba people are happy with President Muhammadu Buhari because he has done more for the ethnic group than any other administration since 1999. This is a statement from the throne:
PDP is dead. I have no problem with your husband but Buhari didn’t offend the Yorubas. In fact, he has done more for us than any other government since 1999. And in this place, they call me Baba APC…but I will pray for you. I wish you journey mercies
However, Atiku was disappointed with the decision and submission of the king that he could neither hold on to it nor ignore. He said:
This is a call to register my disappointment with the Alaafin of Oyo My wife Titi Abubakar sneaked into his palace to solicit support for me. Alaafin told her that “PDP is dead and Buhari didn’t offend the Yorubas and has even done more for them than any other Govt since 1999.
