Some Nigerians have criticised the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, over his opposing view to the disintegration of the country, amid the uncontrollable insecurity under President Muhammadu Buhari’s watch, Page 36 learnt.
The aggrieved citizens flooded Facebook and Twitter with comments lambasting the APC National Leader and 2023 Presidential Hopeful, for putting his political ambition before people’s conditions.
Recall, that Tinubu had said that Nigeria is better together as a country, and that he has nowhere to go if the country breaks up.
He also stated that it is “not acceptable to us” for Nigeria to break up.
he stated this at a Special Ramadan prayer, which held in Lagos, on Sunday.
His exact words: “God will not allow Nigeria to experience it (war). If we say Nigeria should separate, people should remember what war caused in Sudan and Iraq.
“Such war does not end in time. We are yet to recover from the Civil War. We are better together.
“I have nowhere I am going. Whoever has experienced war in the past, will not pray for such. Nigeria will not separate; it Is not acceptable to us. Our prayer is for prosperity and more wealth for the country.”
Reacting however, some Nigerian insisted that the disintegration of Nigeria is imminent, and not negotiable.
For instance, Frank Frankbora on Facebook said: “At any point in time, they will only speak to favour their interest. Mad people everywhere.
“But to us it is acceptable. Who are you to determine our future?” Abayomi Adebanjo asked on Facebook.
“Frustrated man, tell your dogs that the agitation is not a political game, but will happen soonest”, Ishola Abdulqaudri Adebayo commented on Facebook.
“You brought a government where you cannot defend your people. Mr. self-centered!”
“You Tinubu and your Associates have already destroyed Nigeria”, Omokele Onogwu Matthew reacted on Facebook.
“We are only trying to repair a small side for us to stay without you and your Associates killing us. Is anything wrong there?”
On Twitter, Yewande EndSars @Girly_Girl_ tweeted: “Of course, his personal agenda is more important than the progress of millions of people of #YorubaNationNow and #BiafraExit.”
In the same manner, Jasper Aniet Louis @trueAFICIONADO tweeted: “Who are the ‘us’? Is it the association of heartless criminals in the auspices of Politicians or the masses? Truth be told, criminals in Nigeria, I mean the political class do not want their business, Nigeria, to scatter, but it must scatter soon.”
“I do not expect a beneficiary of a failed system and government to turn around to offer restitution. He is scared that his political hegemony will be over if that happens, because we will never allow the present Politicians in the affair of Oduduwa and Biafra. No going back”, Ginger @dmvginger tweeted.
Vaughan Enyiogu tweeted: “@AsiwajuTinubu, you are merely deceiving yourself.”
