Afenifere Leader Says He Warned Tinubu Against Supporting Buhari



I Told Tinubu Against Upholding Buhari - Afenifere Leader

Chief Ayo Adebanjo, Leader of the Pan-Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere said he warned the All Progressives Congress (APC) national leader and frontline presidential aspirant of the party, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, against supporting President Muhammadu Buhari.

Chief Adebanjo disclosed this against the backdrop of the controversy generated by Tinubu’s comment last Thursday in Abeokuta. Tinubu said he ensured the victory of Buhari in 2015.

Reacting to the comment, the president through his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, replied to Tinubu, saying many people contributed to his victory.

Wading into the controversy, Adebanjo recalled that he warned Tinubu a long time ago that Buhari could not be trusted when he was promoting him (Buhari) as the best to be the president of Nigeria.

The Afenifere leader stated that everything he said about Buhari had come to pass even though they said he was saying rubbish then.

Chief Adebanjo, who has been a fierce critic of Buhari and Tinubu in recent times, said he would not make much comment until they (those in APC) finally ditch themselves.

He expressed:

I can’t say more than this. I don’t want to be involved in this small boys’ game; when I have told them. I warned him, I warned the whole nation not to vote for Buhari. I warned Tinubu that he is playing a dangerous game.

Those who doubted me said the old man was just talking rubbish. I said, ‘okay let’s wait and see.’ I won’t talk more until they finally ditch themselves out. By the time they finally ditch themselves, that’s when I will comment.

This is not the time for me to say he should leave the party, I told him that a long time ago. You should refer to what people have said and what I particularly have told him.
