YOU’RE A PASTOR, STOP LYING; NIGERIA NOT SAFE — AFENIFERE TACKLES OSINBAJO



The Pan Yoruba Socio-political group, Afenifere, has reacted to the Vice-President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, by claiming that the ongoing insecurity in the country particularly kidnapping and banditry were being exaggerated by Nigerians.

The group was on Tuesday at the Akure home of its leader, Chief Reuben Fasoranti, condemned Prof. Osinbajo over the comment made on Sunday while addressing some Nigerians in New York, maintained that the growing trends of insecurity in the country is an indication of a failed state, particularly with the recent security alerts issued by the United Kingdom and United States of America to their citizens over security threats in most parts of the country.

“Yorubaland is Still Under Siege” as well the continued “traumatization of our people by Fulani herdsmen/kidnappers/militia all across the Six states in the zone as well as Kwara and Kogi States.”

Vice President had said during a town hall meeting in New York on Sunday evening while responding to questions and comments as regards “high rate of killings and kidnappings” in the country stated that, “With respect to general kidnapping which we have seen in parts of the country, again, this is not entirely new. In fact, some of the kidnapping stories you read or listen to are simply not true anywhere, some are fuelled by politics.

Osinbajo added during the meeting that, “There are cases of kidnapping, no question at all about that, but some of the more dramatic stories that you hear are simply not true.”

“frowned at this unfortunate comments by the Vice President who shames the Yoruba people with his very cheap politicking with the lives of Nigerians.”
