IS PROF. BANJI AKINTOYE RUNNING OUT OF OPTIONS?: A REJOINDER TO THE CURRENT LETTER WRITTEN BY PROFESSOR BANJI AKINTOYE TO SENATOR BOLA AHMED TINUBU
By David Adenekan
Intrinsically, I personally do not understand the purpose of this letter at this point of a possible political Cul-De-Sac, in the so called contraption called Nigeria.
Are we sure Prof. Banji Akintoye has not run out of options because of the belief in some quarters that, he was not sincere enough in his leadership of the self determination group, Ilana Omo Odua?
Why is Prof. Banji Akintoye appealing to a non-chalant Tinubu to make a 360 degree turn about and consider a sovereign Yoruba nation when he has already sold his soul to the oligarchs?
One cannot understand the rationale behind this letter written by Professor emeritus, Banji Akintoye to a Pharoah's hardened heart.
Is this letter not somehow inapt in a perilous time like this?
Also, is this not somehow, an aberration, committed by Prof. Banji Akintoye against the great spirit of a sovereign Yoruba nation we are yearning and clamoring for? This is because, a Bola Ahmed Tinubu is completely out of the equation at a time like this. Also, is Tinubu not one of the sworn enemies against anything restructuring or sovereign Yoruba nation?
Yes, he is, and we must not give even his shadow any kind of chance in the struggle for a sovereign Yoruba nation?
We have empirical evidence that Tinubu will destroy anything Yoruba nation without looking back.
One: "Where are the cows" Tinubu made this statement without being remorseful when it was evidently cleared that the herdsmen/marauder have murdered in cold blood, the daughter of one of the foremost Yoruba leaders, Pa. Reuben Fasanranti in Ondo state.
Two: The Mulikat Adeola Akande's Speakership saga in the House of Representatives that Tinubu led his kitchen cabinet to trade the interest of Yoruba nation to favor a fulani man, Aminu Tambuwal to be the Speaker of the House of Representatives, under former President Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan, is still very fresh in our memories.
Three: Has Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu made any official statement to condemn the killing sprees and ethnic cleansing perpetrated by fulani herdsmen in some part of Yoruba land like Oke Ogun in Oyo State; the homeland of Chief Sunday Adeyemo Igboho?
Four. Was Tinubu not secretly part of the plan of the death squad that killed and maimed many at Sunday Igboho's resident in Ibadan, Oyo state?
Hmmm, time will tell.
Is the Intelligence report not pointing to the fact that, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Governor Seyi Makinde were in the know of the death squad that masterminded the evil operation at Sunday Igboho's resident?
Prejudice apart and without mincing words, this long epistle by Prof. Banji Akintoye is somehow unnecessary, at a time like this.
Hmmmmm! Does it not seem like a futile exercise to many who understand the many intrigues in the battle for a sovereign Yoruba nation and will never let their guards down, "No matter whose ox is gored?"
Yes, to many, this letter to Tinubu is belated and unnecessary. It is like waking up a sleeping dog and telling the whole world that the only solution to a sovereign Yoruba nation is a mortal man called Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Again, is Prof. Banji Akintoye running out of options?
Moreover, we must not allow Tinubu and his protagonists to make mockery of any great agitator of Yoruba nation like Prof. Banji Akintoye.
YES, WE MUST NOT!
Again, Is Prof. Banji Akintoye running out of options? God forbid! Amen.
Prof. Banji Akintoye cannot afford to return to his vomit. He has done his bit and a lot of accolades for Prof. Banji Akintoye who has made a great mark in the struggle for a sovereign Yoruba nation.
However, it is not a must that a visionary will see the end of the execution of his vision.
In the final analysis, "say it to the marines" that Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu is an option to a fight for a sovereign Yoruba nation or regional autonomy.
ALUTA CONTINUAL! VICTORY ACERTA!!!
Time will tell.
