•Asiwaju Tinubu

Pan-Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere, on Sunday, said Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, National leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) cannot be regarded as one of the defenders of the Yoruba nation.

According to the organisation, Independent had reported that this assertion was based on Asiwaju’s utterances and actions, especially on the issue of killer herdsmen in the country.

The groups also condemned Tinubu’s statement in Ondo State, during his condolence visit to Pa Reuben Fasoranti on the killing of his daughter by suspected herdsmen last Friday.

Recall that during his visit to Pa Fasoranti, Sunday Sun has reported that Asiwaju said: “Funke (the deceased) was very close to me and she died a premature death. Only four or five days ago, we chatted and I know what she discussed with me and about Baba’s health condition.”

“We discussed on so many issues the last time we chatted. I never knew that would be our last discussion. Some of the things we discussed were personal. We also spoke about the health of Baba. It is unfortunate that Funke has gone,” the former governor added.

The APC National Leader said that “the incident that affected one member of our family Mrs. Olakunrin is seriously sad, and unacceptable; but nobody can return her alive, she has answered the call of her creator.

“We must not use this incident to divide ourselves but we must use it as a cure to the security problem. Additional Police, additional patrol and additional security reinforcement along Ore Road and various flash points across the country is necessary, and I have discussed these with those in authority.

“The security challenges are numerous across this country and to fight them, we are going to need more Police,” he said.
