The Head of Media and Publicity of Tinubu Support Group(TSG), Oluwatosin Johnson has debunked the statement credited to the National Coordinator of Northern Patriots Assembly, Alhaji Salihu Mohammed that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is the sponsor of the Fulani/ Yoruba crises in Oyo state
In a statement on Monday, 25 January, 2021, Johnson said report against the National Leader of All Progressives Congress (APC) is nothing but a bunch of lies from the pit of hell, originated by an apparently sick mind.
According to him, it is impossible for a man who has always shown his commintment as detribalised leader to have sponsored such inter-ethnic crisis.
“There is a need to set the facts and record straight to avoid such a fake story may being taken seriously by some unwary and gullible minds.
“Asiwaju Tinubu believes in the right of Nigerians to reside wherever they so wish, and has always canvassed the need for people to explore peaceful channels to ventilate their views and demands.
“Lagos state is one of the few states in Nigeria where citizens of Nigeria from other geo-political zones are given opportunity to occupy political offices within the state.
“This is happening because Asiwaju is a detribalised leader who has always preached the need for one Nigeria,” he said.
Johnson enjoined Nigerians to ignore the claim as it is politically motivated
“We urge Nigerians to ignore their claim. It is obvious that they are politically sponsored to lower the esteem of the Leader of our great party.
“Let us continue to support the administration of our dear President as he continues to lead the fight against insecurity in the country,” Johnson concluded.
