Pan-Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere, on Wednesday, vowed that the group would not support any candidate in 2023 general elections until the 1999 Constitution is changed.

The position of the group was expressed by its Leader, Pa Ayo Adebanjo at a press conference in Lagos.

At the conference include Senator Femi Okurounmu, Supo Shonibare, Professor Ebun Sonaya, Tunde Onakoya, Lanre Anjolaiya, Abdullahi Inaolaji, Ms Nike Olujemibola, and the Afenifere spokesperson, Jare Ajayi.

The group leader said, “We are not contending who is the president now because we don’t believe in the constitution until that constitution is changed, we will talk of who the president should be.

“We have no candidate now until the constitution is changed because I don’t want to go on an uncharted sea. You must agree on the constitution before you say you want to be part of it. I am not going to be part of a constitution that is a military constitution. That is the bone of contention, which Buhari has not disputed. The constitution we are operating a military constitution.

“Let us pray we should all be in 2023, the rest is speculation. That is our stand.”

Asked where the 2023 president should go to, Adebanjo replied: “We want a change of the constitution, if that constitution is not changed, I don’t discuss where the presidency should go to. Why do I say so? When I don’t believe in the 1999 Constitution, why should I be telling you who should be the next president?

“The constitution we are working with is not acceptable, when we agree on the constitution, then we will decide who should be supported.”
