A pro-President Muhammadu Buhari team on Thursday thumped the pan-Yoruba
socio-political group, Afenifere, for proclaiming support for the presidential hopeful of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar.
The gathering, under the umbrella of the South-West Frontiers for Buhari/Osinbajo 2019, said President Buhari had performed well and merited second term in office.
He said the PDP candidate was only deceiving Nigerians adding that the people of the South-West would not be part of the restructuring that Atiku promised.
He said, “The Afenifere is not speaking for the interest of the South-West people, they are only fighting for their pockets.
“We in Yorubaland are always in the progressive since the time of Awolowo. These people are deceiving us that they are progressives but they are not.
“ They are the ones that sold out the June 12, 1993 election,won by late Chief MKO Abiola and Yoruba is known for honesty, integrity and progressivism.
“If Atiku worked with (former President Olusegun) Obasanjo for eight years and Obasanjo himself described him as being corrupt, why is the Afenifere supporting a corrupt person to be the President of this country?
“If the PDP ruled for 16 years and Atiku was the vice president for eight years out of the 16 years, the party could not restructure the country, what type of restructuring does he (Atiku) want to give this country?”
