Yoruba Nation: Nobody Should Beg Presidency On My Behalf – Sunday Igboho
Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has denied asking anyone to plead with the Presidency on his behalf.
Ezenwoko’s Blog reports that counsel to the agitator, Yomi Aliyu, made this known in a statement made available to newsmen on Friday.
Aliyu alleged that a popular politician and another retired security officer are putting pressure on Igboho and his wife for permission to speak with the presidency so that they can secure his release from Benin Republic.
He revealed that his client is totally apolitical and does not support any political party, dismissing reports that he is a member of a party.
Aliyu, however, stated that any document purportedly signed by Igboho or his wife making anybody his mouthpiece other than his lead counsel is fake.
He said: “We have been reliably informed that some politicians are pressuring our client and his wife to give them endorsement to use at the presidency to justify their newfound love and/or defection to the All Progressives Congress and/or curry affection from those in power.
“Let the whole world be aware, especially the presidency, that Sunday Adeyemo is totally apolitical with no special love or hatred for any political party as he has friends in all.
“He however respects the six elected governors of the south-west states as authentic representatives of his Yoruba race. Any document purportedly signed by Igboho or his wife endorsing, empowering or making anybody his mouthpiece other than his lead counsel should be disregarded and taken as fake.
“It is disheartening that a discredited politician with a disreputable pedigree in Yoruba race and another retired security officer are pressurising our client and his wife to give them endorsements to Yoruba youths and the presidency without considering his unlawful incarceration in the Republic of Benin and health issues.”
