Bola Tinubu

• Pan-Yoruba group accuses Tinubu of impunity

 

 

Pan-Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere on Wednesday  condemned the failure of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) for failing to self-isolate after returning from a trip to the United Kingdom (UK). The former Lagos state governor who returned to the country last weekend attended a closed-door meeting with Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, party leaders and state assembly lawmakers at the State House, Marina on Tuesday where drummed support for the call for the lockdown of Lagos State and the country at large over coronavirus.

Aside taking pictures with party leaders present, Tinubu’s picture greeting Governor Sanwo-Olu with elbow bump also went viral.

 

Afenifere speaks

 

Speaking in a chat with Daily Independent on Wednesday, Yinka Odumakin, Afenifere’s national publicity secretary said Tinubu’s action reeks of impunity as it may endanger the lives of others amid the Coronavirus pandemic.

“It is the impunity that runs our country.  It is the impunity that will make someone (Tinubu) to come back from London and burst into town and begin to gallivant all over the place, giving everybody handshakes”.

“It is the kind of impunity that will make Abba Kyari to go to Germany, come back to Nigeria  and began to mingle with everybody, going to weddings, attending meetings and so on.  So, it is above the norms that we have seen in our leadership all the times, that the laws are meant for others, but not meant for us”.

“It is the same impunity that will make some church leaders, even prominent ones among us to go and do church service when the government said no more than 50 people should gather. It is unfortunate” he said.
