Afenifere: We Don’t See Tinubu As One Of Yoruba Defenders!
Pan Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere, has opened up on what they regard the National leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has. According to the group they don’t see Bola Ahmed Tinubu as one of Yoruba defenders due to his actions and utterances especially on the issue of killer herdsmen in Nigeria.
They said this on Sunday in reaction to Tinubu’s statement in Ondo during his condolence visit to Pa Reuben Fasoranti on the killing of his daughter by suspected herdsmen last Friday.
Replying to Tinubu’s statement that Nigerians should stop regarding kidnappers as herdsmen, the National Publicity Secretary of Afenifere, Yinka Odumakin, said Tinubu has been silent on the activities of the herdsmen because he is one of their prominent supporter.
He is their supporter. In October last year in Abuja , he was the first person to advocate Ruga that all unused lands in Nigeria should be given to herdsmen. Today in Akure, he went to ‘mourn’ with Pa Fasoranti and when he finished, he was speaking as if he went there to dance on the grave of the deceased when he said people should stop categorising kidnappers as herdsmen”.
That herdsmen are not the ones that started kidnapping. Is Evans a Fulani herdsmen? So, he went to pour salt upon injury. So, we cannot count him among our defenders in Yorubaland.
