Do You Agre?? Those In Government Are The Real Hoodlums, Not Palliative Looters – Odumakin
Yinka Odumakin, National Publicity Secretary of Afenifere, in this interview with TEMIDAYO AKINSUYI, speaks on the aftermath of the #EndSARS protests and other sundry issues. Excerpts:
South-West governors, traditional rulers and Ministers met in Lagos state last week to proffer solution to the #EndSARS crisis last and Afenifere was not invited. What do you think was responsible for that?
The thing is very clear. Like we said, the Kaduna meeting is an afterthought on our unity as a country. They had a sectional meeting of the North where you have all the key appointees of the President, Chief of Staff, IGP, Chief of Army Staff, Lai Mohammed and others. Even in their communiqué, they were so insensitive.
There are places they said nomination from Federal Executive Council (FEC) to a northern summit initiative, which shows clearly that they don’t see this nation as one.
They see themselves as slave masters while the rest of the country are seen as slaves. They tried to play what is called Taqiyyah into the Middle Belt. When herdsmen killed 78 people in Benue in January 2018, Buhari called Governor Ortom and said ‘go and learn how to live with your people’.
Now they want to use them as part of their crowd. It was when Southern and Middle Belt leaders said ‘no, this shows how incompetence you people are’, that was when Buhari said his Chief of Staff should start the rearguard measures.
The South-East invited their traditional rulers and socio-cultural leaders but in South-West, they invited only the traditional rulers, governors and some ministers. Because our Obas have told them what is important to us in the South-West like restructuring, implementation of the 2014 national conference , we allowed it to go.
