I have a slight pause because Afenifere moves closer to the guy in Aso Rock. Afenifere turns away from Yoruba plights. They’ve become a ‘metaphorical piano’ that can be bought with impractical gifts.
Yoruba are giving up on Afenifere because there’s no point to it anymore. The group has got us nowhere under Goodluck Jonathan’s regime.
This is serious. Afenifere press releases by Yinka Odumakin seems like the size of the coin that you will get from President Jonathan communication team of Reuben Abati and Doyin Okupe.
Afenifere your heart is not finished-but we can no longer hear your voice that once charmed us with rare integrity and intelligence.
Afenifere is no longer committed to the struggle of common and poor people. The present crop Afenifere is like a train wreck that is in denial of truth.
Yoruba people are in despair, yes, Tinubu is not a Yoruba leader; and Obasanjo should not be the APC navigator. (He, Obasanjo, undermined his own brightest legacy as a military Head of State who handed over to civilian by admitting that he was responsible for Shagari’s victory against Chief Awolowo in the 1979 presidential election).
We all agreed that APC has no ideology, but what has Afenifere done for Yoruba people lately?
What is wrong with Afenifere? Why this buzzed and twittered malicious satisfaction to congratulate Jonathan’s sinking presidency on his exquisite work and fake national conference?
Goodluck Jonathan is a political disaster, and the worst civilian president in Nigeria’s history.
This present Afenifere is a confusion and embarrassment. Now Omisore a suspect in the murder of Chief Bola Ige who was deputy leader of Afenifere, and former Attorney General of the Federation walks in and takes off his raincoat to take important seat as a member of Afenifere. The ghost of Bola Ige is crying for justice.
Afenifere, the Yoruba stare at you uncomprehendingly! For God’s sake, give this romance with President Jonathan a break!
Yoruba sons and daughters would be more interested if Afenifere is promoting Yoruba cultures, history and values. Afenifere should not just be about politics; we need Afenifere to be champions in promoting Yoruba cultural renaissance. Afenifere should be working with people like Professor Akinwumi Isola and filmmaker Tunde Kelani on preserving Yoruba cultural heritage and making sure Yoruba kids learned the language instead of all that noise about politics.
Afenifere, please stop this effusively apologetic press releases in defense of Goodluck Jonathan presidency. This is a precious advice, if you like you can take it. I think your business is done in politics. Afenifere you no longer speak for Yoruba people.
