- Afenifere has accused President Buhari of trying to get out of the presidential debate
- According to the Yoruba group, Nigerians will not be wise to vote for anybody that is not ready to debate
- The group also claimed the appointment of Bola Tinubu to lead the presidential campaign of APC is deceitful
Afenifere, a Yoruba socio-political group, has said President Muhammadu Buhari's decision to ask the national leader of the APC, Bola Tinubu, to lead his campaign team, is just a way to deceive him.
The Punch reports that the spokesperson of Afenifere, Yinka Odumakin, also said the appointment of Tinubu to lead the campaign might be a way for President Buhari to avoid the presidential debate.
Odumakin said: “I think the whole thing is just to make Tinubu feel good and think he is being reckoned with. But in any case, it is said that those who don’t learn from history will repeat it.
“This confirms that there are political forces that see some personalities at desperate times as people they can just toy with and once they dangle some carrots before them, there will be no problem.
“But if he tries to avoid the debate, it cannot work. Nigerians will not be wise to vote for anybody that is not ready to debate.”
