2023: Tinubu Not Leader Of Yoruba Race-Odumakin



Supreme Court

The National Publicity Secretary of Afenifere, Yinka Odumakin, has stated that the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, does not qualify to be called a leader of the Yoruba race.

Odumakin stated this while speaking in an interview with the Punch online programme tagged, The Roundtable, on Wednesday, December 30.

He said that the Afenifere has not endorsed Tinubu, Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi, or any non-Yoruba aspirant for the 2023 presidency, adding that the serving overseer of the Citadel Global Community Church in Lagos, Pastor Tunde Bakare is eyeing the presidency in 2023.

Odumakin also said that the group had not given support to Bakare or to anybody who intends to run for the most exalted seat in the country.

Reacting to Bakare’s comments on Tinubu, Odumakin said those who have the cathedral right to express views on the pulpit should be careful of what they say.

He said:

“No, there is no doubt that Asiwaju is a leader in Yorubaland but he is not the leader of the Yoruba people. To say Asiwaju has done more for the Yoruba people is debatable.

“You will not earn our support because you are a Yoruba man but we will examine what you stand for. We have not given support to anyone at the moment. We are watching those who are interested in the 2023 presidency including Fayemi, Tinubu, and even Bakare himself and other non-Yoruba people.

“Where each candidate stands on the issue of restructuring and federalism will determine who gets our support. Afenifere is not afraid to state our support for any candidate and any party.”
