A Pan Yoruba Socio-Cultural Group, Yoruba Youth Forum (YYF) has criticised the national leader of All Progressives Congress, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, accusing him of selling his integrity on the altar of politics, following his statement on Edo governorship election
In a press statement by the group’s President-General, Comrade Abiodun Bolarinwa, it described Tinubu’s statement on Edo’s governorship election as unfortunate and has truly revealed Tinubu for who he truly is. “How can somebody who claimed to have fought for Nigeria’s democracy be so careless with his utterances.”
Recall that Tinubu, in his bid to campaign for the APC candidate, Iza-Iyamu accused Obaseki of being a dictator in Edo, noting that the governor also lacked the rule of law and respect for the people of the state.
He said: “I want to appeal to you to reject Godwin Obaseki in this coming election. I have suffered with many others to bring about this democratic regime that today we are enjoying in the country.
Godwin Obaseki didn’t participate in any aspect of the struggle to enshrine democracy in the country.”
The Group, therefore, challenged Tinubu to show proof that he actually fought for Nigeria’s democracy.
“It is so sad that Tinubu could claim that he fought for Nigeria’s democracy. We know those who genuinely fought for democracy and Tinubu is not in any way among these patriotic people. Tinubu should tell us where he was between 1996 to 1997.”
