Afenifere chieftain, Chief Ayo Adebanjo has taunted President Muhammadu Buhari and All Progressives Congress, APC national leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu of deceiving one another in the politics of their party and country.
Reacting to insinuations that followed the dissolution of the National Working Committee, NWC of the party that was seen as being targeted on Tinubu, Adebanjo told Sunday Punch:
“I have worry for him (Tinubu). He knew all these things but he relied on Buhari and worked to make him the President. I said it before publicly that Buhari is deceiving Asiwaju and Asiwaju is deceiving Buhari.
“Everybody is trying to use the other. Why can’t Tinubu hammer on restructuring knowing that this was what brought Buhari to office?
“I have been in this game for 70 years. So, many of those who are talking now were not born then. That is the truth – even Buhari was a toddler. He is now 74. Each time I tell you, why should Tinubu, the Vice-President (Yemi Osinbajo) and all those who were in Alliance for Democracy run to the APC? Why are they hesitating now to stand for restructuring? They can’t talk.
“All the things I am telling you now – it is not the first time. I said both Jagaban (Tinubu) and Osinbajo should get out of the APC. I said it openly. It is a disgrace and disservice to the Yorubaland. So, what is happening now shows there is nothing to bind them together.”
