Tinubu Already Receiving His Reward In APC For Betraying Afenifere Leaders—Adebanjo
Afenifere chieftain, Chief Ayo Adebanjo, has alleged that Bola Ahmed Tinubu, national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), betrayed leaders of the socio-ethnic group.
Adebanjo, in an interview with Daily Independent, added that Tinubu was being deceived by President Muhammadu Buhari.
He said, “Tinubu’s supporters have claimed that one of the reasons why we parted ways was because he likes spending money for people while elders like us are stingy. That is true and I have challenged him that if I were to ask for money, how much did he give me before I took the action that made him governor? The late Ganiyu Dawodu as the state chairman of Lagos state AD (Alliance for Democracy) had already forwarded the name of Funsho Williams as winner of the primary. I overturned it as the national chairman.
“When there was a dispute between him and Dawodu, the woman he called his mother, Alhaja Abibatu Mogaji, whom I had known since Action Group days phoned me to intervene. I told her ‘Alhaja, you know me. I am standing for truth. Ask your son, did I get a penny from him before I recognised him?'
“When he was trying to undermine his then deputy, Kofoworola Bucknor-Akerele and we told him that he can’t do that. I also spoke with Kafaru Tinubu and I said ‘Kafaru, if I ask you for N20 million at that time, won’t you give me? He said I will give you. I then asked ‘why can’t we talk to this boy (Tinubu)? That is how no matter how much I criticise him; he will only reply me back through his boys who are his mouthpiece. He will never reply me directly. I stood by him through thick and thin on principle, not for any material gain.
