North should beware of Tinubu, he is treacherous – Fayose
Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has warned the northern Nigeria to beware of the All Progressives Congress (APC, Senator Bola Tinubu, describing him as a treacherous politician, who will sell out anyone to achieve political gains.
Fayose, who maintained that Tinubu was not honest in his support for the APC presidential candidate, Major General Mohammadu Buhari (rtd), added that; “Knowing Buhari’s age, state of health and mental capability, Tinubu is only using him to achieve his target of high-jacking power from the North.
Speaking through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Governor Fayose said; “a man who could sell out his own party candidates can sell out anyone given the right prize and political gains.”
“Tinubu said with his own mouth at Onikan Stadium, Lagos on Sunday that he was instrumental to the victory of President Goodluck Jonathan in the 2011 general elections.
“He said; ‘In 2011, I helped Jonathan become President because he made us believe he was a breath of fresh air.’
“The implication of this is that Tinubu sold out the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) presidential candidate, Malam Nuhu Ribadu in 2011 just the way he sold out the Action Congress (AC) presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar in 2007.
“That to me is treachery and on this issue of Buhari and the March 28 presidential election, I am saying again that the North should beware!
“The North should know that Tinubu’s support for Buhari is a Greek gift. Tinubu only wants to corner the economy of Nigeria, using Buhari because he knows that he (Buhari) is weak and even at 41, his military government was ran by his deputy, Tunde Idiagbon.
“Therefore, now that the Almighty Allah has made Tinubu to confess that he traded off Ribadu in 2011, I am calling on our brothers and sisters from the North to beware of this political merchant, who is only out to short change the north for his own gains.”
