The Governor of Ekiti state, Mr Ayo Fayose, has allegedly issued a premonitory warning to northerners to beware of the leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Senator Bola Tinubu, Naij reports.
Speaking through his special assistant on public communications and new media, Lere Olayinka, he portrayed the national leader of the APC as a politician with a trait of selling anyone out to achieve political gains, insisting that Tinubu was not honest in his support for the party’s presidential candidate, Major General Mohammadu Buhari (rtd).
Fayose further stated that knowing Buhari’s age, state of health and mental capability, Tinubu is only using him to achieve his target of high-jacking power from the north.
“A man who could sell out his own party candidates can sell out anyone given the right prize and political gains. Tinubu said with his own mouth at Onikan Stadium, Lagos, on Sunday, that he was instrumental to the victory of President Goodluck Jonathan in the 2011 general elections,” Fayose said.
He quoted Tinubu as saying; “in 2011, I helped Jonathan become president because he made us believe he was a breath of fresh air.”
“That to me is treachery and on this issue of Buhari and the March 28 presidential election, I am saying again that the north should beware. The north should know that Tinubu’s support for Buhari is a Greek gift. Tinubu only wants to corner the economy of Nigeria using Buhari, because he knows that he (Buhari) is weak and even at 41, his military government was run by his deputy, Tunde Idiagbon. Therefore, now that the Almighty Allah has made Tinubu to confess that he traded off Ribadu in 2011, I am calling on our brothers and sisters from the north to beware of this political merchant who is only out to shortchange the north for his own gains,” Fayose concluded.
