Chief Ayo Adebanjo, national leader of pan-Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere has said Nigeria cannot make any meaningful progress owing to the disagreements between the leaders of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), a party he described as ‘conglomeration of incompatibles.
Speaking in an interview with World Africa, 93-year-old Adebanjo also said he is an impromptu candidate for murder by the current administration owing to his constant criticisms of the actions and policies of President Muhammadu Buhari.
He said “I am an impromptu candidate for murder by Buhari because I will continue to oppose him. I repeat I am an impromptu candidate for Buhari to kill. But he is just wasting his time at 93 years old”.
“God has done enough for me. That is why despite all that he is doing, there is a silence of the graveyard in the country. People are hungry and jobless. Nigeria is sitting on a keg of gunpowder. The day it will burst, even Buhari will be surprised. God does not support injustice”.
“When I say Buhari has a private agenda, I know what I’m saying. He wants Fulani to take over and that was why he allowed them to come in. When we ask them about the herders killing people, they would say they are foreigners.
“How can the country make progress when those running the affairs of the party are in disarray? When APC was formed then, I said it publicly that the APC is a conglomeration of incompatibles. There is no principle binding them together. It is a question of sharing of offices and power, there is no abiding ideology. Why can’t they come together and agree on restructuring if truly they have the interest of this country at heart?”
