Humiliation of Tinubu is a humiliation of the Yoruba race says Fayose

The Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has
described the current tirade against Asiwaju Bola Tinubu,
as a grand conspiracy and crude attempt to humiliate and
reduce the political influence of the national leader of All
Progressive Congress.

Condemning the attack on Tinubu, Fayose said
“humiliation of Tinubu is as good as humiliation of the
Yoruba race,” adding that “Yoruba leaders must be

The governor said; “even though I am not a member of
APC and I will never be, I have elected to stand in defence
of the Yoruba nation once again by saying no to the
continuous dishonourable treatment being meted to
Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, having paid his dues.”

Speaking through his Special Assistant on Public
Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Governor
Fayose, said; “if Tinubu is allowed to be embarrassed and
disgraced just the way our past leaders were humiliated by
these same elements, the Yoruba nation would have been
made to suffer for uprightness.”

The governor condemned the Tuesday, sponsored protest
against the APC leader at the party’s national secretariat,
saying; “it is unfortunate that Tinubu is now being vilified
in a party he invested heavily in and his fellow kinsmen
that he brought up politically are part of this conspiracy.

“In their desperation, they have even tried to set him
against the Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo, by
insinuating that tried to prevent his (Osinbajo) emergence
as President Mohammadu Buhari’s running mate, this is

HuHe lamented that “when other tribes protect its own, it is becoming historically common among the Yorubas to
allow themselves to be used against their leaders just for
momentary political gains at the expense of the collective
interests of the Yoruba nation.

“It should be noted that late Chief Obafemi Awolowo was
sent to jail by the conspiracy and collaboration of some
Yorubas with the external aggressors.”

Governor Fayose said; “Tinubu is a prominent stakeholder,
we should not sit back and watch while those he used his
own sweat to make conspired with others to humiliate him.

“Most importantly, it is my position that irrespective of
political affiliation, no leader of the Yoruba nation must be
vilified unduly, especially by the same people who
humiliated our past leaders like Obafemi Awolowo, Adekunle Ajasin, Bola Ige, Bisi Onabanjo, Lateef Jakande and others.

“To me, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu should not be seen just as an
APC leader, but acknowledged as a major stakeholder in
the Yoruba nation that we must all protect beyond politics.

”It should be recalled that these were among the issues
that I raised when I visited Governor Rauf Aregbesola of
Osun State few months ago on the need to work together
beyond party affiliations.

“Here in Yorubaland, it is said that if a household is at
peace, it is because the bastard child of the family is yet to
attain the age of maturity and those people that Asiwaju
Tinubu made, but are now being used against him should
watch it.

“I therefore condemn this conspiracy against Asiwaju
Tinubu and I admonish those that are hoping to make
political benefits from it to have a rethink.”

The governor, who called for greater unity among the
Yorubas, added that; “We are first Yorubas before
becoming members of political parties.
