A leading Afenifere chieftain, Chief Ayo Adebanjo, has mocked National Leader of All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu over his alleged plot to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari.

Recall that Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki alleged on Monday that Tinubu was supporting Buhari’s second term bid in order to pave a way for his (Tinubu’s) presidential ambition in 2023.

Saraki had said, “It is clear that while my own decision is based on protecting the collective national interest, Tinubu will rather live with the identified inadequacies of the government for the sake of fulfilling and preserving his presidential ambition in 2023. This new position of Tinubu has only demonstrated inconsistency — particularly when one reviews his antecedents over the years.”

The former Lagos State Governor has yet to respond to the allegation.

But Adebanjo described Tinubu’s alleged presidential ambition as “daydreaming” and called on the people of the South West geopolitical zone not to fall for his antics a second time.

He also accused Tinubu of leading the Yoruba race astray, adding that the North would never allow him succeed Buhari as president.

The Punch quoted him as saying, “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.”

Adebanjo, 90, noted that the South-West has continuously demanded restructuring of the country which the APC promised to carry out but failed to do.

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.”
