Crisis: Nigeria Will Find Solution When Buhari Leaves Office, Says Afenifere

Published

on

The pan-Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere, on Tuesday, said President Muhammadu Buhari’s exit from power in 2023 would signal an end to the crisis in Nigeria.

The group also said Buhari and his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) can’t solve the myriad of challenges facing the country.

The Acting leader of the group, Chief Ayo Adebanjo, said this while interacting with newsmen after the group’s monthly meeting held in his Sanya-Ogbo residence, Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State.

He said Afenifere had lost hope on Buhari solving the problems in the country.

The Octogenarian accused the President of having a vested interest in the activities of bandits whom he said, should have been declared terrorists .

Adebanjo insisted that the group might not be part of the coming election if the country is not restructured before 2023 election.

The Yoruba leader suggested a national government as part of the measures to solve the problems of the country .

He said, “The solution to the problem is for the man (Buhari) to leave the place.

“The APC has no solution to our problem. What we are talking about is to form a national government to implement restructuring. All areas of conflicts are embedded in restructuring the country.”

On the need for Buhari to declare bandits as terrorists , Adebanjo said, “We have told him long time ago. National Assembly and Commodore (Kunle) Olawunmi have also said it that he should declare bandits as terrorists.”

Meanwhile, Afenifere has described the visit led by its acting leader of the group to former Lagos Governor, Bola Tinubu, as “purely a humanitarian visit”.

The National Publicity Secretary of the group, Jare Ajayi, disclosed this while speaking with newsmen shortly after the meeting.

A delegation of the group had last Tuesday, visited Tinubu at his Ikoyi residence following his return from medical trip in the United Kingdom.

Ajayi said:” The visit of our leaders to former Governor Bola Tinubu is purely on humanitarian ground. He is a Yoruba son. We do not forsake ourselves.

“Afenifere members are Omoluabis and humanists. What the leaders have done is the hallmark of thoroughbred Yoruba men and women.

“We may disagree on principles but we are not political enemies. Even if there is a disagreement on issues, it does not mean that we should not relate.”
