Amotekun: The Unspoken Message In Tinubu’s Statement

The Yoruba socio-political group, , has criticised the statement of APC’s National Leader, , saying he should have remained silent about his position.

The group accused Tinubu for sitting in judgment against the governors, all in a bid to please the Federal Government.

Spokesman of the group, Yinka Odumakin, in a reaction, said “it is unfortunate that Tinubu decided to sit in judgment over the South-West governors and his people and those using federal might to rubbish Yoruba people.

“At a time like this, anybody that says he wants to lead his people should be clear on his stance. Anybody who says he is a leader among Yoruba people and he is dancing here and there, going forth and back, that isn’t leadership.

“In 2013, when Jonathan wanted to declare emergency in some northern states, Pesident Muhammadu Buhari spoke clearly for his people as he said Jonathan couldn’t be giving amnesty to Niger Delta boys and be killing Boko Haram boys. He said attack on Boko Haram is attack against the North.

“In 2001, as former head of state, he [Buhari] went to Ibadan to harass Lam Adesina and his words were clear: ‘your people were killing my people.’

“When Chief Fasoranti’s daughter was killed, Tinubu asked: ‘where are the cows?’ Now, when the governors want to put security measures in place, you are now using negative words. It is unfortunate, we think he should have kept quiet,” the group’s spokesman said.

Odumakin added that Tinubu should have kept quiet over the development, adding that “many of the people who had asked him to speak were afraid that he would not stand for what we are saying.

“And when you read the statement he has issued, you will see that he is neither here nor there. He is even saying that many of us who are saying the Federal Government is cheating the South-West have lost our compass. So I see that he should have kept quiet.”
