In June, YPUK, a party founded by Olusola Oni, said it was fielding candidates in the election to empower the Yoruba voice in British politics.

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

“Labour doesn’t know what to do. Tory don’t know what to do. We know what to do. Vote for the Yoruba Party,” the party said in a campaign post last month.

“The Yoruba Party provides a political voice for the UK Yoruba community.”
