APC presidential candidate, Mohammadu Buhari, has been described as an unrepentant enemy of the Yorubas in the South West by one of the ministers serving under President Jonathan.
Minister of State for Works, Prince Adedayo Adeyeye, has stated that before Buhari and his party, APC, gets any vote from Yoruba people he must tender a public apology to the people of the zone.
According to the Vanguard, In a statement which was personally signed by the minister and made available to journalists in Ado Ekiti on Monday, Adeyeye reviewed all the programmes and policies of the APC presidential candidate while he was the Head of State and while he served as the chairman of the Petroleum Trust Fund, PTF, and concluded that Buhari was the number one enemy of the Yorubas.
“Buhari must be rejected by all true sons and daughters of Oduduwa.”
Adeyeye further noted the incalculable damage the former Head of State did to Lagos State and the entire Yorubaland with the cancellation of the Lagos Metroline Project and how he jeopardised the educational policy of the late Chief Obafemi Awolowo’s Free Education Programme.
He also challenged Buhari to mention one single project that he did in the Southwest when he was Head of State and Chairman of the Petroleum Trust Fund, PTF.
Adeyeye said: “Buhari did not only cancel the Metroline Project, he went ahead to pay what was enough to complete the project as compensation to the French Company that handled the project.
“The idea of developing rapid transit in Lagos dated from the 1980s with the Lagos Metroline network conceived by the Alhaji Lateef Jakande during the Second Republic.”
