Buhari’s letter to INEC was to ridicule you, Yoruba youths tells Tinubu
The Yoruba Youth Socio-Cultural Association (YYSA) has urged a former Lagos State governor Bola Ahmed Tinubu to withdraw his support for President Muhammadu Buhari re-election bid, saying, Buhari’s letter to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) reaffirming his position as the National leader of the party was to ridicule Tinubu.
The YYSA made their position known in a statement by its President Mr. Olalekan Hammed on Sunday in Osogbo and made available to the Punch.
The Statement reads:
“The fact that President Muhammadu Buhari deliberately wrote INEC to affirm his position as the APC national leader vindicates the former President Obasanjo who had sometimes challenged the former Lagos State governor, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu to state his roles in the APC as the national leader of the party.
“Constitutionally, APC has no reasonable provision for him (Tinubu) in the party and he has been used and dumped.
“It would have been better and respectable, provided Mr. Buhari did not write to INEC or talk about the issue. The letter he wrote to the electoral umpire to attest that he is the party’s national leader was aimed at ridiculing Tinubu
“Yoruba people understand body language more than any other tribe in Nigeria. There is no sense in staying with people who do not appreciate your presence or feel your impact. The YYSA implores Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to think twice before supporting Buhari’s re-election bid. There is no difference between someone who steals your property and someone who shows no gratitude for all the favour rendered to him.”
