Ibadan - The Yoruba Council of Elders (YCE) has denied endorsing President Goodluck Jonathan for a second term, reports Vanguard.

The Council noted that Adebayo attended the meeting because the theme was centred on the Yoruba agenda.

Bayo Olateju, the Assistant National Secretary of YCE, who spoke on behalf of the elders, noted that the  group has not shifted from its initial position that it would not enmesh itself in the murky waters of politics by endorsing any of the candidates.
