Leader of Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere, Chief Ayo Adebanjo, on Wednesday, June 2, 2021, has said he warned Nigerians not to vote in Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) as Nigeria’s President in 2015, noting that the Katsina-born ex-military head of state is a dictator.
The 93-year-old Afenifere leader stated this while featuring on Channels Television’s ‘Politics Today’ programme monitored by The PUNCH on Wednesday June 2, 2021.

He was reacting to a statement made by the President on Tuesday.
The PUNCH had earlier reported that the President condemned the attacks on police stations, prisons and offices of the Independent National Electoral Commission, especially in the South-East, warning that those supporting insurrection and violence in the country would be shocked.
Buhari had tweeted, “Many of those misbehaving today are too young to be aware of the destruction and loss of lives that occurred during the Nigerian Civil War. Those of us in the fields for 30 months, who went through the war, will treat them in the language they understand.”
