Afenifere Urges Politicians To Place National Interest Above Personal Interest
The apex Yoruba socio-political organization, Afenifere, has revealed the only reason the Senate President Bukola Saraki and the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bolaji Tinubu are exchanging words.
Afenifere described the situation as the elevation of personal interests and ambitions over national good and development by politicians in the country.
It noted that the verbal exchanges between Tinubu and Saraki were all about their personal interests.
Spokesman of Afenifere, Yinka Odumakin, while reacting to the fight between the two former governors and party members, said it was disappointing to see the two men more interested in personal ambitions than in national good and progress.
“You cannot see anything in these exchanges that talk about national good or higher values,” he said.
“The only thing that was substantial was when Saraki said he was against Muslim-Muslim ticket in 2014. “If that was true, it would have been unthinkable in a Nigeria so badly divided as it is today.
“Clearly, the arguments were about personal interests and ambitions.”
