Fayose warns Tinubu to thread with caution as election approaches



In an open letter to Tinubu, the former governor of Ekiti State, Mr Ayodele Fayose, has warned the presidential hopeful that he “may be swimming against the political tide of the cabal in your party,” as he prepares for the presidential primary.

The letter reads: “Let me start this letter to your good-self whom I considered as one of the leading lights of the Yoruba nation; as a letter that may not be patronizing, especially for the content based on the subjective views I will express here as a Yoruba man and not as a politician.

“I equally wish to state that I am not an APC man and will never be. I am writing based on my observed views and the attached possible dangers about your good-self against today.

“One of the undeniable facts is your outburst in Abeokuta, which is a clear indication that you clearly saw a political danger to which you reacted. This informed the basis of my writing to you now.

“I equally read the reactions of your political allies both in the North and in the South.

“The reactions gave me great cause of concern for you and your life. Again, I see danger.

“As a knowledgeable student of history whom you are; our great late sage, Chief Obafemi Awolowo and the celebrated winner of the June 12, 1993 general election; Alhaji Moshood Abiola, were led to the Golgotha by self-acclaimed champions of democracy.

“I am sure the same people may advise you to ignore my advice.

“Going by the handwriting that is now clearly on the wall, if I may comment sir, I see you as one that may be swimming against the political tide of the cabal in your party.

“They are equally prepared for your actions and reactions and are fully set to contain the same as they did to both Awolowo and Abiola.”
