Nobody Made Akintoye Mouthpiece Of Yoruba Race – Keyamo Reacts To Allegation Against Tinubu

Keyamo Reacts To Senate’s Probe On Creation Of 774,000 Jobs

The Chief Spokesperson of the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council, Festus Keyamo, has denied claim that the party’s presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, was planning to sabotage the Yoruba Nation self-determination struggle movement.

Keyamo was reacting to an allegation made by the leader of Ilana Omo Oodua, Professor Banji Akintoye, that Tinubu was using some members of the movement to destroy the struggle for Yoruba Nation because of his presidential ambition. The Minister of State for Labour and Employment also refuted Akintoye’s accusation that Tinubu is seeking to destroy the Yoruba self-determination struggle by using some members of the movement. Keyamo stated that he doesn’t know if the former Governor of Lagos State would be attending the World Congress of Ilana Omo Oodua scheduled to hold today in Ibadan. The minister warned the professor to stop acting as the mouthpiece of the Yoruba race, saying nobody made the spokesperson for the people of the South West. He said, “The itinerary of Asiwaju that I have for tomorrow is the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry. I cannot confirm if he is attending the World Congress of Ilana Omo Oodua today at Ibadan.  “Are the Yoruba a group of people who arrogate to themselves the leadership status? When did the Yoruba gather to elect some of these characters? “I speak authoritatively because I am also Yoruba and I have a right to be Afenifere with any Yoruba group. That is because my mother is a full-blooded Yoruba woman, a princess of the throne in Ilaro. I am an Egbado man myself. My first cousin is the Olu of Ilaro. I can confidently claim to be part of Afenifere. “All I am trying to tell you is that the Yoruba have not appointed any of such characters to speak on behalf of the Yoruba race.”
