Yoruba elders attack Tinubu for refusing to speak up on Amotekun

Pa Ayo Adebanjo says Tinubu will never become the president of Nigeria, adding that Buhari is only deceiving him.

Yoruba elders have come for Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for keeping mum over Operation Amotekun, a security outfit established by his region’s governors.

Afenifere chieftains Pa Ayo Adebanjo and Senator Femi Okurounmu lambasted Tinubu, who is seen as a political leader in the South-West for refusing to comment on the security initiative.

The South-West Security Network code-named Operation Amotekun was launched by the region’s governors on Thursday, January 9, 2020, and almost immediately after the launch, the Federal Government through the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami declared it illegal.

Leaders of interest groups in the north have also condemned the establishment of Operation Amotekun as regional security outfit for the South-western part of the country.

While the Federal Government has expressed its opposition for the initiative, Yoruba elders have voiced their support for Amotekun, but Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos state is yet to say anything on the issue.

Reacting to Tinubu’s silence on the security outfit, 91-year-old Adebanjo in an interview tackled Tinubu for forming an alliance with the North.

“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 said.

Adebanjo further said Tinubu will never become the president of the country. He added that the APC leader has been keeping mum over Amotekun because he is being deceived with a presidential ticket.
