The pan-Yoruba Sociocultural Group, Afenifere, has flayed the Presidency’s opposition to agitations for secession, saying President Muhammadu Buhari is insensitive to the yearning of Nigerians.
A presidential spokesman, Garuba Shehu, had on Tuesday, described those agitating for secession as Nigeria’s greatest enemies.
- Mobile court convicts 33 tricycle operators without rider’s permit
- Wanted Abia major drug supplier arrested with 100kg cocaine, cannabis
But Afenifere, through its General Secretary, Olusola Ebiseni in a statement entitled ‘Garba Shehu’s Fool’s Paradise’ yesterday said Shehu had further soiled Buhari’s image.
“Buhari and his government needs be reminded that the call for conference of the people to take back their country, even with an elected government and parliament in place, is neither unknown nor new to history. India is a federation like Nigeria.
“Those who feel firmly rooted in their positions may wish to take the counsel of elders that the contest for the ring on the finger of the dreaded oracle may not spare the finger itself in the fullness of time.”
