The leader of Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere, Ayo Adebanjo, on Tuesday, noted that nobody needs to pass a vote of no confidence in President Muhammadu Buhari before the whole world is aware that he has failed Nigerians.
Adebanjo stated this during an interview with Punch on Tuesday.
The Afenifere Leader made this claim while reacting to the statement of the President’s spokesman, Femi Adesina, that some people are recruiting ethnic groups where a vote of no confidence will be passed in the President.
Adesina further stated that the motive of those people is to further throw the country into turmoil.
However, Chief Adebanjo in his statement said the President already failed and there was no need for any group to gather anywhere to pass a vote of no confidence in him.
Adebanjo who was not pleased with the 1999 Constitution, called on Buhari to return the country’s constitution to the 1964 Constitution agreed on by the founding fathers of Nigeria including the late Sir Ahmadu Bello, Sir Obafemi Awolowo and Sir Nnamdi Azikwe.
He said, “Who is interested in passing vote of no confidence in Buhari? Who has confidence in Buhari before let alone pass any vote of no confidence in him. That is not the issue. The main thing is to restructure the country back to federalism and forget all these gossips by Adesina. We don’t have to pass a vote of no confidence for the world to know we don’t have any confidence in Buhari.”
“I don’t know of any group who wants to take over the government but I know those of us who want the country to be restructured in a peaceful manner.
“Those of us in Afenifere and all other groups in the South who are agitating for restructuring are the friends of Nigeria, are the friends of Buhari. I hope it is not too late for Buhari to realise this,” he added.
