Yorubas are no longer with Tinubu, he is on his own, says Adetokunbo


The chairman, Strategy and mobilization, Social Democratic Party (S.W) and deputy chairman, Media and publicity committee, SDP national convention, Dr Adetokunbo Pearse, has said that South-West people are no longer with Tinubu. He said that Tinubu was powerful in 2015 but now he is on his own. 

He also said that Buhari will not get 25 per cent votes in the South-west, he will not get it in the South-east, South-south and North-central. He said that Buhari is finished with regards to the 2019 election.

Adetokunbo stated this in an interview with Sun. 

His words, "The South-west worked with Buhari in 2015 because of the former governor of Lagos State, the architect of this so-called APC which is not a real party, but a contraption put together for the purpose of winning that election and get rid of President Jonathan. When they came into power, they got confused because they never had any understanding of governance.

"Tinubu was very powerful in 2015, but things have changed. Tinubu has lost election in Ondo State; he does not have control of Ogun State; he does not have control of Oyo State.

"The only state that he has now is Lagos State and Lagos is divided even with the APC. Even within the APC, some are against the APC. You must also understand that two things have happened.

"Tinubu has lost strength and support across board. So, the South-west people are not following him. They are following the issues and we know the South-west vote according to their own interest.

"In 2015, it was in their interest to support Tinubu, but now, they have realized that he led them into a ditch. The main force in the South-west now is the Afenifere and the SDP collaboration. We are for restructuring and Buhari is not for restructuring.

"We are for social welfare programmes, free education, free healthcare, mass transit establishment and affordable mass housing. And all these, Buhari has not been supportive of including the rule of law and democracy. We also support decency and integrity in politics.

"For all these reasons, nobody in the South-west is going to support Buhari. We as well as other Nigerians have suffered under Buhari’s administration. Prices of goods have gone up like never before.

"The naira has been the weakest in the history of this country. Direct foreign investment has collapsed. Nobody wants to invest in Nigeria. The Stock Exchange and the GDP are down. The only thing that is up in Nigeria today is poverty, and unemployment and hunger. So, tell me who is going to support Buhari in the South-west?

"He will not get 25 per cent votes in the South-west, he will not get it in the South-east, South-south and North-central. Buhari is finished with regards to the 2019 election.

"The only thing remaining now is for him to rig the election, but we will wait for him. If he succeeds in rigging it, we go to court and he will be disgraced from the court.
