Adamu Garba, a former All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential aspirant, has called the former President Olusegun Obasanjo, accusing him of never wanting any Yoruba man to grow above him while he’s still alive.
Recall that the former president in his new year message condemned Tinubu’s ‘Emi lokan’ mantra, stating that it is the wrong mentality for the leadership of Nigeria.
However, Garba in a tweet via his official Twitter account on Sunday evening, stated that Obasanjo want to remain the only living Yoruba man to use the GCFR title.
He wrote, “It is a well known fact that Obasanjo never wanted any Yoruba man to grow above him while he’s still alive.
“Yet Bola Tinubu, his arch political rival, who dethroned him from South West Politics is about becoming the President of Nigeria. His actions should not surprise you.
“Obasanjo want to remain the only living Yoruba man to use the GCFR title. He never wanted anyone to get that.
“But we’ll promise him one thing, by God’s Grace, we’ll be inviting him to the swearing-in ceremony of Tinubu on May 29, 2023 as commander in chief and GCFR, insha Allah.”
