He made the claim while speaking to newsmen on Saturday, March 7, 2015 after President Jonathan was hosted by the Ooni of Ife, Oba Okunade Sijuwade  in Osun State.

He said: “With all sense of humility, President Jonathan will have more than 75 per cent of votes in Yoruba land. APC is well grounded in propaganda and the super structure of their programmes is propaganda.”

“For so long, we have been the advocates of federalism in Nigeria and president Jonathan has better chances of winning again.”

He added that the true federalism which the Yorubas have been clamouring for can be achieved through the implementation of the National Conference report, which President Jonathan has promised to do.
