Pan- Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere has declared Femi Adesina, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari as a betrayer of the Yoruba people following his recent statement justifying the actions of his principal.
Chief Ayo Adebanjo, the National Leader of the organisation who stated this in an exclusive interview with DAILY INDEPENDENT on Saturday said Adesina’s utterances since becoming the President’s media aide is at variance with his views before his appointment.
Recall that Adesina had a few days ago said President Buhari is a man of iron and steel who will not hesitate to “whip into line” anybody who “misbehaves in any part of the country.”
Speaking with our correspondent, Adebanjo who said the Yoruba people will get rid of Buhari through prayers added that Adesina is behaving as if the President will remain in power forever.
He said “Femi Adesina is a sell-out of the Yoruba people. When you compare what Adesina was writing as Editor of the Sun newspaper and what he is doing now, you feel ashamed of him. He has no principles at all”.
“He has forgotten that 10 kings, 10 seasons. Adesina has forgotten that Buhari will leave his position as President soon and Nigeria will remain. Then, we will look at Adesina and say ‘where are you now?’
“Adesina is thinking that Buhari will triumph over iniquity. No, it can never happen. We will get rid of Buhari through prayers to God because God does not support injustice. Then, we shall see what Adesina’s life will look like”.
