Tinubu afraid to speak against Buhari for selfish reasons – Afenifere
A leader of pan-Yoruba group Afenifere, Chief Ayo Adebanjo says National Leader of All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is afraid to speak up against Fulani herdsmen’s atrocities in the South-West zone because he does not want to jeopardise his relationship with President Muhammadu Buhari.
He alleged that Tinubu has not deemed it fit to comment on the Fulani herdsmen attacks in the South-West because of his rumoured 2023 presidential ambition.
Adebanjo explained that Tinubu has convinced himself that Buhari will help him clinch the presidency in 2023.
The nonagenarian lamented that President Muhammadu Buhari appears to back the Fulani herdsmen that have been accused of kidnapping, raping and killing locals in the South-West, especially Oyo, Ondo, Ogun and Ekiti states.
The Afenifere leader called on the president to remember that he is president for all Nigerians.
“I don’t buy the propaganda of the Buhari government that how do you know they are Fulani? And when they are caught, they will say, they are foreign Fulani. If you are a competent defender of the Nigerian people, the Fulani herdsmen won’t be committing all forms of atrocities unabated,” Adebanjo stated in an interview with The Punch.
