2023 Presidential Ambition: Tinubu Daydreaming - Afenifere


Bola Tinubu
Chief Ayo Adebanjo, a chieftain of Afenifere says the National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu must be naive and daydreaming over claim that he is ambitious to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari by 2023.

The President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki had on Monday said Tinubu was supporting President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election with the hope of succeeding the President in 2023.

The Senate president also said Tinubu told him he would support Buhari even if he was on a stretcher.


Saraki spoke in reaction to a statement on Sunday by Tinubu, alleging that the Senate president dumped the APC because of his presidential ambition and selfish quest for power.

But the Afenifere leader, Adebanjo has said Tinubu must be naive to think that the North will allow him to succeed Buhari in 2023.

The 90-year-old statesman also urged the people of the South-West not to allow themselves to be fooled by Tinubu a second time.

Adebanjo said according to Punch Newspaper said, “Tinubu is daydreaming if he thinks the North will ever support his presidential ambition. We have our principles.

“We are not supporting Buhari under any circumstance and Tinubu cannot lead Yoruba land because all he has done is to lead us astray. All he has done for us is to give some of our people who are close to him appointments.

“Nothing tangible has been done for Yoruba land. He gave his stooges appointments, nothing more, nothing less. If he has done more than that, let him say it.”

Adebanjo said the only demand the Yoruba had made was restructuring which the APC had been dishonest about.

The Afenifere chieftain said one of the reasons Afenifere supported Buhari in 2007 was because of his promise to restructure the country to allow for true federalism.

He said instead of keeping its promise, the APC resorted to setting up a committee on restructuring to deceive gullible Nigerians and the likes of Tinubu participated in the grand scheme of deception.

Adebanjo added, “How can they be telling us about restructuring committee, when from the outset, they were supposed to have started restructuring. Who do they think they are fooling? If Tinubu is daydreaming, he shouldn’t think others are daydreaming like him.”

“Buhari is a stranger to us in Yoruba land. The only Yoruba supporting him are those benefitting from this corrupt regime.”

Attempts to get a reaction from Tinubu’s Media Adviser, Mr Tunde Rahman, to Saraki and Adebanjo’s statements were unsuccessful. Calls to his mobile telephone number were neither picked nor returned.
