Tinubuís comments on natíl unity exposes his hypocrisy and double standards, Northern Coalition says
 


Former Lagos state governor and national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has been accused of speaking from both sides of the mouth regarding the unity of the country.

The accusation was leveled against the politician by members of the Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG) which said his action betrays his utterances.

CNG said in a statement issued by its spokesman, Abdulazeez Suleiman, that it was compelled to make a reaction after it read some news reports on Monday, August 11, 2019 with the caption ďLetís work for growth, not separationĒ attributed to comments made by Tinubu.

The CNG in the statement said; ďThe comments by Tinubu only succeeded in further exposing his hypocrisy and obsession with double standards with regard to his role in causing the present high political polarization in Nigeria and the deterioration of trust in the current administrationĒ, the CNG said.

ďWhile we do not envy the Asiwaju his privilege to believe he can push his ambition for the presidency at all cost, we nevertheless find it ridiculous that he still thinks he can get away with this latest rap on national growth after having stood against it for quite long.

ďAs we join the general uproar and condemnation that trailed the statement by Tinubu, we wish to ask him to sincerely answer the following simple questions:

ďTinubu should explain the absence of his sense of cohesion when, in 2015, the Oba of Lagos, whose affinity to Tinubu is no secret, ordered that all Igbos must vote Tinubuís APC or leave the state.

ďTinubuís concern for national growth was certainly missing at the inception of this administration when he vehemently stood against the formation of an inclusive government against the advice of the leadership of the Northern Elders Forum for Buhari to appoint an Igbo as Secretary to the federal government.

ďWe are aware that Tinubu solely misled President Buhari against that patriotic advice by insisting that the Igbo did not vote him and that it was not safe for another Igbo to succeed the office which was immediately vacated by a kinsman. He made the President appoint his stooge, Babachir Lawal who turned out to be a national disgrace. This much was confirmed by Lawal himself when he said he owed his appointment to Tinubu and to some extent, Bisi Akande. And after the scandalous fall of Lawal, Tinubu again prevailed against an Igbo successor and imposed another stooge, Boss Mustapha.


ďTinubu should explain where his conscience for nationhood was during the February 2019 elections when after disenfranchising the Igbo community in Lagos, militant OPC youth backed by leaders of the South West violently attacked Igbo communities and their businesses.

ďHe should explain his democratic claims and desire for growth in relation to his unilateral insistence on denying a sitting Governor Ambode of Lagos state the right to seek reelection in 2019.

ďThis he did despite personal efforts by President Buhari to show him that Ambode was a performing, hardworking governor. The President even sent a committee of seven governors picked across states to persuade Tinubu but he stood his ground merely for his personal interest.

ďTinubuís sense of nationalism also came to question with his silence at the time his people in the South West deployed every unconventional means to fight the presidency, the entire Fulani and the larger North over the Ruga initiative of the federal government. His concern for national integration must have gone to sleep when the Afenifere, an organization he nourishes, ordered the Fulani out of the Southwest, and when Gani Adams threatened to mobilize 2 million Yoruba warriors against the Fulani in the Southwest.

ďWhere was Tinubuís sense of patriotism when his stooge Omoyele Sowore recently masterminded and actually called for a violent protest with the ultimate aim of overthrowing a democratically elected government in which he, Tinubu is singularly the major beneficiary?

ďHow does Tinubu explain his conspiratorial silence when Wole Soyinka, Falana and other rabble-rousers on his payroll openly supported and backed the mastermind of the overthrow attempt?

ďLastly we task Tinubu to justify his claim to nationalism and growth against the four-year protracted war he waged against Bukola Saraki and Amaechi simply because they opposed the emergence of a Muslim-Muslim ticket in the buildup to the 2015 elections.

ďIn conclusion, we categorically state that unless and until Tinubu is able to satisfactorily provide answers to these questions, no Nigerian, certainly no northerner would take his call for focus on national growth seriously. We finally call Tinubuís attention to the new reality that though he might have succeeded in fooling some Nigerians sometimes in the past, he should not expect that he can fool anybody anymoreĒ, the CNG declared.
