The Yoruba Council of Youths Worldwide has warned the Kaduna’s State Governor Mal. Nasir Elrufai to desist from acts that could earn him disgrace from the Yoruba Nation
Speaking to the media in Lagos, the President of the Council Aremo Barr. Oladotun Hassan said the statement credited by El-Rufai saying he will teach Lagosians how to end Godfatherism is not only abysmally insulting and clandestine, but an intrusion to Yorubs and Lagos States’ matters, while leaving his own state Kaduna under intensed insecurity and fears, saying he lacks credibility to utter such seditious statement in our land.
The Youth leader said how can someone who is supposed to focus on how to end insecurity and abject poverty ravaging his State and region come to Southwest and without sense of caution protruding into Lagos; the megacity Center of Excellence and the commercial nerve centre of Nigeria and Africa’s emerging economic hub to claim he wants to end Godfatherism.
Even as he claimed that he had ended Godfatherism in Kaduna, we are yet to see the benefits of his political victory in the lives of the people of Kaduna and the development of the State, unlike Lagos where our our Progressive leader of leaders has great successes to show.
Our so called ‘Godfatherism’ system helped in sustaining the struggle against opposition in Nigeria and led to the building of the strong political party APC that made it possible for the enthronement of President Muhammadu Buhari which also helped the same Elrufai become the Kaduna State Governor.
Our so called Godfatherism helped sustain Lagos as the commercial hub of Nigeria and the 5th largest Economy in Africa.
Our so called ‘Godfatherism’ has produced some of the best brains who are currently an integral part of Nigeria’s political base and socioeconomic development today, thriving in all sectors of the economy, with succinct track records of excellence and landmarks achievements of the country.
Our so called ‘Godfatherism’ has put Lagos as the most viable self sustaining State in Nigeria today.
Our so called ‘Godfatherism’ has made Lagos among State with best infrastructure in Africa, without leaving no stone unturned towards achieving greater heights as one of the world’s leading economy.
Even as we want to give little respect to Elrufai, we will reject any attempt by any individual no matter how highly placed to intrude or disrespect our political leaders in the Southwest.
Governor El-Rufai is renowned for being too overzealous for power 2019, and harbinger of crises, hence his previous contemptuous stands on issues of national development, being overide with his penchant for ethnic bigotry and indiscriminate devaluation of humanity, hence we condemned his crocodile tears in its entirety.
Nigerians still kept the hate speech and treasonable felonious statements credited to Governor El-Rufai on attempted threats of mass genocide and killings in body bagging the international observers at the last 2019 election, a repition of what is happening in Southern Kaduna which almost caused the nation a huge embarrassment and disaster. if not for our intervention as future heirs of Nigeria.
Going back to memory lane, we cannot forget in a hurry the double jeopardy situation where some Traitors in Yoruba land collaborated with some hegemonic structures to betray the late sage of great memory: Chief Obafemi Awolowo, and we will never allow history to repeat
