Leader of the Pan-Yoruba Socio-Cultural Group, Afenifere, Chief Ayo Adebanjo, has accused former Governor of Osun State, Bisi Akand of conniving with the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) Leader, Bola Tinubu, to “sell” the Yoruba race to President Muhammadu Buhari.
Recall that NewsBreak reported the recent book launched in Lagos titled ‘My Participation’, authored by Akande, where he revealed how Buhari allegedly failed to pick Tinubu as running mate.
Speaking during an interview with Arise on Tuesday, Adebanjo said he has known Akande for a long time to be a “pathetic liar”.
Said he: “He (Bisi Akande) is too junior to me to be commenting on political matters. He is a political neophyte. He is already known to me as a pathological liar. His colleague, Akinfenwa, in his book said that is who he is. And those of us who know him also know. He is just an apron string of Tinubu.
“He is too junior for me to be commenting on what he said. I signed his papers to be governor. And the condition we gave for him to become governor was that of a sovereign national conference for the restructuring of the country back to federalism. That was the condition he was elected in 1999 and he reneged on that.
“We call all of them – Bola Tinubu, Segun Osoba to warn them when they renege. They have sold out the Yoruba race to Muhammadu Buhari all because they want Tinubu to be president. That is not my business.
“But telling lies is the one I don’t know and I don’t know how a man like Akande who claims that we all come from the root of Obafemi Awolowo can be taking pride in his participation in the government of one, Buhari, who they know is a disaster when all those who supported him initially are now regretting that they supported him.
“There is no sensible man who will come out now and say he is proud of Buhari. It shows the type of character he is. So, he is too junior for me to be commenting on what he said.”
