Yoruba Party to debut in UK election

Yoruba Party has said it will field candidates in the upcoming generation elections in the United Kingdom.

Last month, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, announced that he would dissolve the parliament on May 30, and call a general election on July 4.

According to TheCable, YPUK, a newly party formed on February 13, 2024, by Olusola Oni, a retired NHS consultant, is set to participate in the election, in a pamphlet sighted by it.

According to the newspaper, the new party said it aims at “empowering the Yoruba voice in British politics”.

The party’s campaign manifestos include promises on climate change, reduction of taxes, quality national health service, immigration and “assisting Yoruba domiciled in the United Kingdom to achieve full potentials”.

“Labour don’t know what to do. Tory don’t know what to do. We know what to do. Vote for the Yoruba Party,” a part of the pamphlet reads.

“The prime minister has called parliamentary elections for 4 July 2024. The Yoruba Party in the UK shall be fielding candidates for these elections. The Yoruba Party provides a political voice for the UK Yoruba community.”

It added that the new party has also been listed on the UK electoral commission’s website.
