Adebanjo: ‘Buhari is the number one enemy to unity of Nigeria’


The leader of the pan-Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere, Chief Ayo Adebanjo, said President Muhammadu Buhari is the number enemy to the unity of Nigeria.

Adebanjo stated this on ‘The Morning Show,’ a breakfast programme on ARISE NEWS Channel.

He said President Buhari has given wind to the sail of separatist agitators in the country by ignoring the calls of patriotic Nigerians for a new constitution.

Adebanjo stressed that the 1999 Constitution (as amended) was imposed on Nigerians by the military and must be changed.

He blamed the constitution for creating the conditions for marginalisation and injustice against some parts of the country.

He said only a new constitution before the 2023 general election can silence agitators like Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Igboho.

He said: “Since President Buhari has refused to listen to the masses concerning the call for a change in our constitution, which has led to the continued agitations from different parts of the county, thus creating disunity among Nigerians who are calling for secession, then it becomes obvious that President Buhari is the number one enemy to the unity of Nigeria.”

Adebanjo accused Buhari of having a hidden agenda by refusing to restructure Nigeria.

He said the youth were too impatient and could not bear the sufferings inflicted on them by the present constitution.
