Yoruba elders attacks VP-Osinbajo for anti-restructuring comment

Yoruba elders attacks VP-Osinbajo for anti-restructuring comment

The Yoruba Council of Elders has unleashed attack on Nigerian Vice President Yemi Osinbajo (SAN) for his view on restructuring.

Although the Secretary-General of YCE,
Dr Kunle Olajide, described Osinbajo as a good ambassador of the Yoruba,
he said the VP goofed on his position on the demand for restructuring
by Nigerians.

Olajide stated this in an interview with reporters at his country-home in Efon-Alaaye, Ekiti State, on Sunday.

He spoke after his son, Adegoke, was
blessed by the leaders of the All Progressives Congress as an aspirant
for the Efon constituency in the Ekiti State House of Assembly. The
event took place at the residence of High Chief Joseph Alake, the
Erungboa of Obalu Quarters.

Osinbajo had at a town hall meeting in
Minnesota, the United States of America, said that the problem of
Nigeria was not geographical restructuring but prudent management of
national resources and providing for the people properly.

He also said prudent management of the
nation’s resources and the provision of essential needs of the people
were better ways of addressing Nigeria’s development challenges.

“Problem with our country is not a
matter of restructuring…and we must not allow ourselves to be drawn into
the argument that our problems stem from some geographical
restructuring,” he had said.

But reacting, Olajide said, “He
(Osinbajo) missed it on the issue of restructuring. The Federal
Government must listen to wise counsel on the need for restructuring in
the country.

“Restructuring is very fundamental to
the problems of Nigeria for obvious reasons. This is a heterogeneous
country made of different nations, tribes, histories and cultures and
consequently different priorities. Our concept of development differs
from one part of the country to another. If we must live together in
peace, each of the nation’s tribes must itemise their priorities as
regards their cultures, histories and beliefs.”

However, the council said it was proud
of Osinbajo for performing most creditably in office by demonstrating
good leadership, especially, on few occasions that the President was not

Olajide said, “The Yoruba are very proud
of Mr Vice President (Osinbajo). He has performed most creditably in
office. His absolute loyalty to his boss is commendable.

“Moreover, on the few occasions he acted as President, his leadership has been most inspiring.”

Alake promised that the town would support Adegoke because what the people needed was a consensus candidate.
