Fayose warns APC against humiliating Tinubu

07 October 2016, 17:04

Ekiti - The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose has condemned the treatment being meted out to a national leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, in the party.

It will be recalled that a group known as the All Progressives Congress Youths Democratic Frontiers, APCYDF, had protested at the National Headquarters of the APC against Tinubu’s demand that the party’s national chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun should resign.

But reacting to the development in the APC, Fayose said the “humiliation of Tinubu is as good as (the) humiliation of the Yoruba race.”

The governor, in a statement by his media aide, Lere Olayinka, said allowing Tinubu to be embarrassed like past Yoruba leaders was not in the best interest of the race.

According to Fayose, “Even though I am not a member of APC and I will never be, I have elected to stand in defence of the Yoruba nation once again by saying no to the continuous dishonourable treatment being meted to Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, having paid his dues.

“If Tinubu is allowed to be embarrassed and disgraced just the way our past leaders were humiliated by these same elements, the Yoruba nation would have been made to suffer for uprightness.”

Condemning Tuesday’s protest by APC’s youth, Fayose said, “It is unfortunate that Tinubu is now being vilified in a party he invested heavily in; and his fellow kinsmen that he brought up politically are part of this conspiracy.
