Adamu Garba, a former presidential aspirant for the All Progressives Congress (APC), has called out ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo and said he doesn’t want any Yoruba man to rise above him as long as he’s still alive.
Remember that in his New Year’s statement, the former president criticised Tinubu’s “Emi lokan” mantra, saying that it represents the wrong mentality for the leadership of Nigeria.
On the other hand, Garba noted in a tweet that he sent out via his official Twitter account on Sunday evening that Obasanjo’s goal is to continue being the only living Yoruba man to use the GCFR title.
He wrote, “It is a well-known fact that Obasanjo never wanted any Yoruba man to grow above him while he’s still alive.
“Yet Bola Tinubu, his arch-political rival, who dethroned him from South West Politics, is about to become the President of Nigeria. His actions should not surprise you.
“Obasanjo wants to remain the only living Yoruba man to use the GCFR title. He never wanted anyone to get that.
“But we’ll promise him one thing, by God’s Grace, we’ll be inviting him to the swearing-in ceremony of Tinubu on May 29, 2023 as commander in chief and GCFR, insha Allah.”
