Osinbajo Has Betrayed Yorubas, Says Afenifere

Afenifere, the pan-Yoruba socio-political group, has condemned Vice President Yemi Osinbajo over what they termed his support for the Hausa/Fulani community to the detriment of the Yoruba people.

Afenifere made this known in a communiqué issued after its meeting that held in Akure, Ondo State, on Monday.

The group said it is one of the reasons it would not support the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the coming elections.

The communique, signed by its leader, Pa Reuben Fasoranti, read: “That a person is your son does not mean you support him when he is working against your interest. Osinbajo is working against the interest of Yoruba and our support for Atiku is not the question of Yoruba or Igbo or Hausa, but about somebody that believes in what Awolowo believed in, which is federalism.

“Osinbajo is hanging on the Fulani to work against Yoruba interest. When our people are being killed in their farms by Fulani herdsmen, Osinbajo did not say anything. When we are talking about restructuring, Osinbajo is arguing against restructuring and all the Yoruba want is restructuring. So, when Osinbajo is working against restructuring, he is not for Yoruba people. So, we cannot support because of Osinbajo who has turned himself to the enemy of Yoruba.”

Afenifere also aligned itself with other socio-political groups like Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Pan Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF), Middle Belt Forum, and Northern Elders Forum (NEF) that have endorsed Atiku Abubakar over President Muhammadu Buhari.

Afenifere rebuffed the faction led by Senator Ayo Fasanmi that endorsed Buhari, condemning the faction as an attention-seeking group of people.

“These pretenders are doubtlessly not Afenifere members, but as usual, only dubiously seeking to exploit the goodwill and reputation of Afenifere to market their bad political product,” the group said.
