A chieftain of Afenifere, Chief Ayo Adebanjo, has said that the All Progressives Congress, APC, National Leader, Bolaji Tinubu must be naive to think of succeeding President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
Recall that Senate President Bukola Saraki had alleged that Mr Tinubu was following President Buhari only blindly because of his presidential ambition in the 2023 general elections.
However, Mr Adebanjo, in an interview with The Punch, called on the people of the South-West not to allow themselves to be fooled by Mr Tinubu for a second time.
“Tinubu is daydreaming if he thinks the North will ever support his presidential ambition. We have our principles.
“We are not supporting Buhari under any circumstance and Tinubu cannot lead Yoruba land because all he has done is to lead us astray. All he has done for us is to give some of our people who are close to him appointments.
“Nothing tangible has been done for Yoruba land. He gave his stooges appointments, nothing more, nothing less. If he has done more than that, let him say it.”
The 90-year-old said the only demand the Yoruba had made was restructuring, which the APC had been dishonest about.
He added, “How can they be telling us about restructuring committee, when from the outset, they were supposed to have started restructuring. Who do they think they are fooling?
“If Tinubu is daydreaming, he shouldn’t think others are daydreaming like him.
“Buhari is a stranger to us in Yoruba land. The only Yoruba supporting him are those benefiting from this corrupt regime.”
