2023 : Tinubu In Fresh Battle As Afenifere Rejects To Endorse Him, Says He Is Not A Yoruba Leader

 

 

Afenifere has revealed that Tinubu Is Not A Yoruba Leader and hence, they Cannot Endorse Him For 2023 President.

WeetalknaijaBlog can authoritavely report that Yinka Odumakin, National Publicity Secretary of pan-Yoruba group, Afenifere, on Wednesday, said All Progressives Congress chieftain, Bola Tinubu, is not the focal leader of the Yoruba people.

Speaking during Punch Online interview programme, The Roundtable, Odumakin said, “No, there is no doubt that Asiwaju is a leader in Yorubaland but he is not the leader of the Yoruba people,” Odumakin added, noting that, “To say Asiwaju has done more for the Yoruba people is debatable”.

Odumakin also hinted that his Yoruba Pan Group, Afenifere has not endorsed Tinubu, the Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi, or any non-Yoruba aspirant for the 2023 presidency.

The Afenifere spokesman also claimed that the Serving Overseer of the Citadel Global Community Church in Lagos, Pastor Tunde Bakare, still wants to run for president in 2023, adding that the group has not given support to anyone.

 

Recall that Bakara compared Tinubu to Jephtah in the Bible, saying he fought many battles for the Yoruba and “delivered Lagos State and nearly all the South-West states from the onslaught of the PDP from 1999 to 2007″.

Mixed reactions trailed the message, as many wondered why Bakare, who once spoke against Tinubu turned around to praise him.

 

Commenting on Wednesday, Odumakin said those who have the cathedral right to express views on the pulpit should be careful of what they say.

Those who have the cathedral right to express strong views on the pulpits of God and whose words are taken very seriously by their congregation should be careful of what they say to those who listen to them,” he said

 

“No, there is no doubt that Asiwaju is a leader in Yorubaland but he is not the leader of the Yoruba people,” Odumakin added, noting that, “To say Asiwaju has done more for the Yoruba people is debatable”.

 

The Afenifere spokesman further stated, “You will not earn our support because you are a Yoruba man but we will examine what you stand for.

We have not given support to anyone at the moment. We are watching those who are interested in the 2023 presidency including Fayemi, Tinubu, and even Bakare himself and other non-Yoruba people.
