A national leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC Bola Tinubu has come under fire over his pre-owned silence on operation Amotekun.
Some South West governors across party line came together stem the level of insecurity in the region with the launch of Amotekun.
But while speaking PUNCH over the weekend, a chieftain of the pan Yoruba social political group, AFENIFERE, Ayo Adebanjo has berated Tinubu for not speaking up in support of the security initiative.
Tinubu ’s continued silence on the matter has raised a few eyebrows given the strong support expressed for the initiative by the majority of Yoruba leaders across political divides .
Adebanjo, who is now 91 -year – ol, said Tinubu shouldn ’t have formed an alliance with the North in the first place .
He said , “It was the likes of Tinubu that told us that the South- West would enjoy many privileges but what has the South -West benefitted from the alliance ? He shouldn’ t have forged an alliance with them in the first place .
“He asked the Yoruba people to vote for him ( Buhari ) and that things would be better . Now that they are being slaughtered and they don ’t want us to have our security, you are keeping quiet all because you are being deceived that you will become the President which you will never
“I have continued to tell him that they are just deceiving him and he is deceiving himself . Which promise has Buhari made and fulfilled ? In 2015, he said he would be a born again democrat but does he even obey court orders?”
“I told them then that Buhari was only after power . If not, how is it that they neither want to protect us nor allow us to protect ourselves ? Why is the North allowed to have security agencies while we are not allowed to protect ourselves against armed persons?
“The police refuse to do anything because of the President ’s body language . How could they have killed the daughter of our leader ( Pa Reuben Fasoranti ) and there has not been a single arrest ?
