The Yoruba social cultural association under the auspices of Afenifere has described the word wars between the national leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, has a desire to meet their personal interests, but not to bear benefit for Nigerians.
Expressing its dismay, Afenifere said the politicians in Nigeria has elevated personal interests and ambition beyond national good, progress and development.
It also emphasized that the verbal exchanges between the APC leader, Tinubu, and Senate President Saraki were all about their personal interests, rather than national good and progress.
Afenifere spokesman, Yinka Odumakin, expressed disappointment that the two men were more interested in personal ambitions than in national good and progress.
“You cannot see anything in these exchanges that talk about national good or higher values. The only thing that was substantial was when Saraki said he was against Muslim-Muslim ticket in 2014. If that was true, it would have been unthinkable in a Nigeria so badly divided as it is today. Clearly, the arguments were about personal interests and ambitions,” Afenifere noted.
