Afenifere has left Bola Ahmed Tinubu to sort himself out with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, for not speaking up for the Yoruba nation .
News Mail Nigeria gathered that that Yinka Odumakin the Yoruba socio-cultural group’s national publicity secretary said “Let them sort out themselves. It has nothing to do with us in Afenifere. Let them fight their corruption the way they want and sort themselves out”.
Yinka Odumakin said this about the reactivated case by EFCC against Bola Tinubu while speaking to Daily Independent. Odumaki said Tinubu didn’t speak up for the Yoruba nation in time of need.
The news EFCC Chairman, Abdulrasheed Bawa , headed the investigation against the former Lagos Governor while he was the head of Lagos zonal office.
In the letter, the anti-graft agency referred to its previous letter of September 4, 2020, and CCB’s response of October 9, 2020, asking the bureau to supply “outstanding requested information of Bola Ahmed Adekunle Tinubu.”
“Let them sort out themselves. It has nothing to do with us in Afenifere. Let them fight their corruption the way they want and sort themselves out,” he said, while stating that it is internal politics and “not an issue for us. “
“We are fighting the killings and attacks on Yoruba people at this moment. That is what we have time for now. Our focus now is to end the serial attacks, banditry and raping of our women and other things that are going on. That is our concern at the moment; not any party or political leader,” Mr. Odumakin said.
You would recall that the Afenifere’s factional leader, Ayo Adebanjo, said an attack on Tinubu is an attack on the Yoruba race. Odumakin had this to say as response :
“We do not disown our leader, Papa Ayo Adebanjo for the statement he made at that time,” adding that “the circumstances were different from what obtains now.”
“Our people are under serious siege and anybody that cannot stand up for them in what they are going through cannot have Yoruba support at this time,” the group’s spokesman added.
