Nigeria Sitting On Keg Of Gunpowder –Ayo Adebanjo

Chief Ayo Adebanjo

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?”
