Balarabe Attacks Tinubu, Gani Adams, Wole Soyinka Over Statements On Amotekun



Balarabe Musa

Balarabe Musa, a former Governor of Kaduna State, has attacked the Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, Gani Adams and the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu.

Musa in his statement claimed that the former governor of Lagos State belongs to an administration that is showing a lack of aptitude to govern Nigeria.

He also attacked Nobel Laureate, Wole Soyinka, over the issues surrounding the Southwest security outfit, operation Amotekun.

Governors from the six Southwest states had launched the security outfit to fight against kidnapping, banditry and other vices.

Balarabe Musa had earlier stated that the regional security outfit was created in preparation for the declaration of Oduduwa Republic.

Naija News recalls Tinubu had stated that the security outfit is no threat to the federal government.

Musa while speaking with the Sun on Thursday said, “But what do you expect Tinubu to do because Tinubu is part and parcel of this government which is responsible for this incompetence that makes Amotekun look necessary to others.”

“So, what do you expect him to do. How can he say Amotekun is not a threat to national unity when he is part and parcel of the government and part and parcel of the South West elite that are responsible. So you can’t expect the same attitude with mine because he is directly involved.”

“I am not surprised about his response but I am saying that people like him and us should work together because we think principally about national unity and I have no doubt about Tinubu’s commitment about national unity even though I have doubts about the commitment of people like Soyinka. I can even identify specific attempts that Tinubu took to bring about national unity since his intervention in real politics at NADECO.”

“For Soyinka, all his announcements since he came into the scene particularly during his encounter with the late Bala Usman who was doubting whether he earned his professorship and he was reacting.”

“When regional issues arise, Soyinka has never taken his bias towards, for instance, Yorubaland, Yoruba states and everything Yoruba and not Nigeria. I mean that has been clear.”

“The best thing is that let all of us who differ on this Amotekun come together and do what appears to have been done by others.”

“For instance, Tinubu is suggesting something that will make Amotekun a national aspiration. Now, the North Central governments are also thinking of doing the same thing.”

“Forget about Adams. We know his position right from the beginning. As far as he is concerned, it is Yoruba and Yoruba all the time. I don’t even want to comment about what Adams. He is talking about the North fixing a national problem. Why should he be talking about the North?”

“He is talking about conquest agenda by the North. You see this nonsense. This is something that lacks intelligence and it shows the attitude of people with intellectual and social indiscipline and articulation.”

“What does Adams know? When did he arrive in the scene to know all these? He arrived when the rot has already started and he started using the rot.”
