Socio-political activist, Deji Adeyanju has slammed supporters of the presidential ambition of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, describing them as clowns.
The activist said Tinubu and his supporters are only trying to enslave Nigerians the same way he has enslaved Lagos State and behaving like a god to them.
Comrade Adeyanju made the submission on Friday in a statement where he pointed out that the former Lagos State Governor didn’t do so much in bringing Buhari to power in 2015 as most of his supporters want people to believe.
He went ahead to list some politicians including ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo, former Governor of Rivers, and Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, former Governor of Kano State, Rabiu Kwakwanso, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, former Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State and others as key people who worked against Goodluck Jonathan to ensure his defeat and Buhari’s victory in the 2015 presidential election.
Adeyanju added that it is wrong to try and pressure the All Progressives Congress (APC) to give its presidential ticket to Tinubu as compensation for enthroning Buhari.
“It is very insulting to Buhari and even the APC for Tinubu’s supporters to keep saying he made Buhari president in 2015. Obasanjo did more for Buhari to be president in 2015 than Tinubu by rallying the international community against GEJ. Amaechi brought more money than Tinubu. Kwankwaso brought more votes than Tinubu. Atiku, Amosun, etc.
“Even people within GEJ’s administration who worked against him did more than Tinubu. Sahara Reporters did more than Tinubu to remove GEJ from power.
“More insulting is their assertion that Tinubu should be compensated with the destiny of a nation because he worked for Buhari’s emergence in 2015.
“This is why I describe Tinubu’s supporters as clowns who are only looking for a slave master to enslave Nigerians and politicians the way he is currently enslaving Lagosians and acting like a god there,” Adeyanju said in a Twitter post on Friday.
