Below are excerpt from the chat;
How do you feel about what is happening between the National Chairman of APC, Odigie Oyegun and the former Lagos governor, Bola Tinubu?
Tinubu caused it himself; I said it. We warned him not to go to that alliance. He does not know the Fulani people and we know them. We have dined with their fathers but he thought he knows better because he believes that Awolowo’s tactics does not pay now, it is his own tactics that pays. How it pays now, he is now seeing it.
Great Britain went into European Union, after how many years, they said ah, this thing doesn’t pay us ooo. For that reason, they voted that they want to get out. If they have been satisfied there, they won’t be talking about getting out. The same thing here now, we’ve enjoyed staying together but we say well, there are certain things that are unacceptable to some of us, although we still want to live together but not under this system.
The philosophy behind a national conference is what I’m telling you which some do not want. Because their own is to cheat others and those who are being cheated say no, we’re not going to have to stay with anybody under a system where you’ll cheat me, which is like the unity of the horse and the rider. They’ve been the rider and we’ve been the horse. The question of not being the horse in the unity is what is causing the trouble; that is what is causing the elite of the North not to support restructuring because they’re the beneficiary.
It is because of them that the question of federal character comes in; all the things we’re doing where you put the unqualified people in position and appointments are no longer made on merit. And you know, one beauty under this 2014 constitution, we gave conditions for becoming president. That constitution would have broken this rotational North – South. When it is in the North, it won’t go to the North-West again; it will rotate there. When it’s in the South, it won’t go to Ijaw again; it will rotate there. And we have dissolved power.
