Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose has condemned the attack on Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, saying, “humiliation of Tinubu is as good as humiliation of the Yoruba race.”

The governor condemned the recently sponsored protest against the APC leader at the party’s national secretariat, saying, “It is unfortunate that Tinubu is now being vilified by a party he invested heavily in and his fellow kinsmen that he brought up politically are part of this conspiracy.”

“When other tribes protect own, it is becoming historically common among the Yoruba’s to allow themselves to be used against their leaders just for momentary political gains at the expense of the collective interests of the Yoruba nation.”

The governor, who called for greater unity among the Yoruba, added, “We are first Yoruba before becoming members of political parties, it is my opinion that our leaders must be defended and protected, not minding the personal gains of today.”
