Why Tinubu, Osoba, Akande backed Obasanjo’s second term — Adebanjo (Punch)

Elder statesman and chieftain of Afenifere, Chief Ayo Adebanjo, has accused some former South-West governors, including Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Chief Bisi Akande and Chief Olusegun Osoba, of supporting former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s re-election bid in 2003 out of selfish ambition.
