Why Afenifere Leader, Adebanjo Thinks Tinubu Is Silent On Killings And Why He Should leave the APC.

The leader of the Youruba socio-political group, Afenifere, Chief Ayo Adebanjo wants Bola Tinubu and other Yoruba leaders to leave the All Progressives Congress-APC.

Ayo Adebanjo (

The nonagenarian who led some of the Yoruba chiefs to visit Tinubu, believes Tinubu is being deceived by the APC and president Muhammadu Buhari. According to Adebanjo, the rumoured support the president is giving Tinubu to take over come 2023 is actually a lie.


Recall that supports are being drummed up for Bola Tinubu to contest and the 2023 presidential elections, but he (Tinubu) has not actually come out to declare his interest. Questions are also being raised about Tinubu's health, given he just returned from a medical tour from the UK.

Chief Adebanjo's concern is however, not regarding Tinubu's health, but regarding his reputation and the welfare of Yoruba land in general. He called the APC a carcass and advised Yoruba leaders to leave it on time or perish with it.

Adebanjo clearly stated that the reason Tinubu is even silent on all the killings going on in the country is because he (Tinubu) thinks Buhari will handover power to him. This means, Adebanjo is attributing Tinubu's silence to his presidential ambition, which he has not even disclosed yet.

So, for Adebanjo to warn Tinubu of the fallout if his silence, seems appropriate from an elder. Adebanjo feels that should Tinubu contest the APC primaries, he would even lose from there.


Well, the Afenifere leader has given his opinion, though the Afenifere group have clearly stated that they will still support Tinubu, should be decide to run for presidency.

With Adebanjo's claim, it highlights the allegation, that some politicians know that things are not going as they should, but for the sake of their own interests, they keep quiet or support the status quo even.

We really do hope that Tinubu's silence is not as a result of his ambition as Adebanjo claims, and that should be decide to run for presidency, he should put the interests of Nigeria and Nigerians first.
