Yoruba is not impressed with Buhari – Adebanjo

A chieftain of Afenifere, Chief Ayo Adebanjo says he and other
leaders are not impressed by President Muhammadu Buhari’s
declaration that June 12 will henceforth replace May 29 as
Nigeria’s Democracy Day in honour of the late Chief Moshood
He also stated that they were also not excited about the
conferment of the award of Grand Commander of the Federal
Republic, GCFR, on the late businessman.
The elder statesman said this in a chat with Punch.
He said: “But if he (Buhari) has now done it because the
presidential election is coming, well, he cannot bamboozle anybody
with that. What we are saying is that if he wants to honour the
memory of Abiola and June 12, he should implement what June 12
stands for, which is good governance and democracy.
“He should restructure the country before the elections to show his
genuineness and not just be playing to the gallery. This is because
all that June 12 stands for is democracy and good governance. It
is not about people being killed right, left and centre and
pretending that you don’t know what is happening.
“It is not people being killed every day and after three months, you
now wake up and say you are beefing up security. People have
been complaining about the awkwardness of the lopsided
appointments of heads of security agencies since you came into
office, but it was not until now that the vice president (Prof. Yemi
Osinbajo) said, “Oh yes, we are going to review it” – because
election is approaching.
“We are no fools in this country. He should know that many of us
have not got cattle brain, we are well educated and we know what
we want. Nobody can come and bamboozle us because elections
are coming. It is just like he said in 2015 that he was a born-again
democrat. Now, he has shown us that he is a dictator. We are not
moved by it. It is a welcome idea and yes, it is a thing that ought to
have been done. But that he is now doing it because elections are
coming, I am not excited by that at all.
