The leader of social-political group Afenifere, Pa Ayo Adebanjo, has berated the national leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, over his stand on restructuring.
In an interview with PUNCH on Friday, the 93-year-old statesman accused the former Lagos State governor of no longer seeing restructuring as a priority.
He also lamented that some APC leaders including Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo; Tinubu, Bisi Akande, Olusegun Osoba, amongst others, promised restructuring during the 2015 electioneering but reneged on their promises after President Muhammadu Buhari won the election.
Pa Adebanjo said, “Even those who came into office advocating federalism like Osinbajo, Tinubu, Osoba, Akande. You remember how they came into office under restructuring, they now say restructuring is not their priority.
“Osinbajo is now telling us that there are many things to restructuring, which one are they talking of. The restructuring they put in the manifesto of APC, which one is that? The restructuring el-Rufai recommended in 2018, which one is that?
“The restructuring Buhari agreed with (Tunde) Bakare and he contested election with him in 2011, which one is that? Bakare still says it loud and clear that it is restructuring I agreed with you before I contested election with you”
