The Yoruba Party in the United Kingdom (YPUK) says it will field candidates in the forthcoming general election.

In May, Rishi Sunak, the United Kingdom prime minister, announced that he would dissolve the parliament on May 30 and call a general election on July 4. 

In a campaign pamphlet seen by TheCable, YPUK, a new party which was founded by Olusola Oni on February 13, 2024, is set to participate in the election.

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.”

The new party has also been listed on the UK electoral commission’s website.

The party is led by Olusola Oni, who is also the treasurer, while Oluwole Oni is the nominating and campaign officer. (The Cable)
