Isaac Fayose, younger brother to former Ekiti state governor, Ayodele Fayose, has suggested why it’s difficult for Yoruba people to support the candidacy of Peter Obi of the Labour Party during the 2023 polls.
Fayose highlighted that Igbos do not trust Yorubas, which makes it quite stressful to support an Obi who’s an Igbo.
He, however, stated that he had contributed personally to Obi’s candidature, but still, the people from Southwest don’t trust him.
Fayose revealed in a statement he put on his social media handle, which read thus: “Supporting Peter Obi is so stressful for a Yoruba person.
“The Igbos don’t trust themselves, so how do I even expect them to trust me?
“I gave my hotel, Time, money, sometimes my food bank and my space. They still abuse me every day.”
Despite the lack of trust from different sections of the country, Obi has enjoyed massive support from people across the country, including the Southwest, especially youths.
Recently, Isaac Fayose said that the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Ahmed Tinubu is the leading candidate amongst all others.
He cited the division between Igbo people as why Tinubu is leading the pack. He also suggested that the sit-at-home exercise in the Southeast region and the agitation for the Biafra nation would go on to relegate Obi.
