Chief Ayo Adebanjo - June 12: Buhari can't Bamboozle yoruba, Tinubu has burnt his boat - Adebanjo

Chief Ayo Adebanjo, an elder statesman, has reacted to the President Buhari’s new directive to recognize June 12 as democracy day in honour of the late MKO Abiola.

Adebanjo said that the President cannot ‘bamboozle’ the Yorubas with that declaration adding that they are not stupid. He pointed out that Buhari could not claim to be a Democrat if he is not committed to restructuring.

He told Punch;

“Do you think Yoruba people are that stupid? We are not that stupid. Quote me, if Buhari thinks he can bamboozle the Yoruba people with that, he has failed. Go and ask Tinubu,”

“Tinubu himself knows that he has burnt his boat if he continues to support Buhari on the question of restructuring. For anybody to think that he is going to do anything for us in Yorubaland now, he should restructure the country.

“And not that we will continue with a constitution imposed on us and you begin to harass us, keep all the security people in your hand, and use this (June 12 declaration) to bamboozle us and yet, you say you are a Democrat.

“I’m saying if he was sincere, he would have done it when he came into office. He is not just coming into government,” 

“He came into government three years ago, so why is he doing it now that he wants to contest for second term? And he had always known that it was the wish of the Yoruba people ever since, even before he came into government because when the south-west had an opposition government at the federal level, all the governments in the south-west were declaring June 12 as public holiday.

    You are one of the elder statesman I respect in Yoruba land and Nigeria as a whole.
    June 12 don’t just happened today.Mr Buhari was part and parcel of the government that jailed Abiola.Why did he not add his voice to the actualization of June 12, OR declare June 12 a National day when he came on board?
    Even MR Falana whom we respected so much fell for this Greek gift by Buhari. Thank God the Yorubas are not stupid.
