A supporter of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu with a pro-Yoruba agenda, Chief Remilekun Tijani Usman, has pressed the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, and the Minister of the Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, to publicly declare their backing for Tinubu’s presidential bid, arguing that their silence at the time is not the best.
Usman, who also pressed the pair to publicly declare their status as members of the political dynasty’s benefactors and offspring, nevertheless promised to donate N100 million to Tinubu’s campaign.
“If those who are not from Yorubaland including northerners are not hiding their support for Asiwaju Tinubu, one wonders why our brothers whose political journey cannot be completed without Tinubu’s influence are yet to be mobilizing and working secretly and openly for him.
“There may be differences but they should resolve and bury their hatchet in the interest of Southwest, Yoruba and give Tinubu the best support he deserves from them.
“I also want to say that Osinbajo, Aregbesola, and others who are in the same category of aggrieved party members should direct their supporters to do so and join various campaign groups.”
He expressed optimism that Tinubu would win 2023 election, saying: “Don’t let us go to war with a divided team, we need genuine reconciliation and support for the task ahead because it is a must-win for Yorubaland.”
