The Voice of a man is the voice of God. “Voix Popil, voix Dei”, Says Yoruba Youths under the aegis of Grand Council of Yoruba Youths.
According to them, by disowning zoning arrangement ahead of the 2023 presidential election, the opposition party, PDP, has shown that the party lacks focus.
The Yoruba youths added that the aftermath of the party’s decision could be suicidal as the sitting Governors and Federal Legislators have already been defecting from the Party to the ruling APC as if they all knew before now that the Captain of the Ship of the Party was heading towards the Rock.
This was contained in a statement signed by the President – General of the group, Comrade AWA Bamiji yesterday.
The Yoruba youths also hailed the “erudite Professor of Literature, our ever dynamic Mentor of decades, Kongi of the Century, the Noble Laurette, literary Giant, 2016 Akinkanju Omo Odu’a Awardee of the Grand Council of Yoruba Youths, Prof Wole Soyinka @ 87; as well as our ever committed Chief of Staff, Osun State, our big Brother, a renowned Scholar, Author and Policy Expert, Mr Charles Akindiji Akinola @ 65; the Nigeria’s foremost Leader in Disability Community and former Special Assistant to the Late Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State on Disability affairs, Prince (Dr) Paul Ayolade Adelabu @ 60.”
The statement reads in parts:
The Southern Governors’ Forum (SGF) where the electoral strength of the Party comes from, had earlier approved the Rotational Presidency and publicly announced the 2023 Presidential election to be the turn of the South before the Uche Secondus led Exco came out to say another thing in their bid to finally wreck the Ship of the Party before jumping out.
Rotational Presidency is a divine project that will promote unity, equity, fairness and justice among the ethic Groups and it is high time, the PDP as Opposition Party, Governor Yaya Bello of Kogi State (APC, Senator Sanni Yerima of Zamfara State (APC) and other upcoming Political Trouble Shooters understood this perfectly before getting more intoxicated by spending the intimidating largesse at their disposal beyond what they can control in good time so as not to invite the wrath of Almighty God over themselves by going bankrupt or insolvent.
“A stitch in time saves Nine”.
