General Theophilus Danjuma, a former Minister of Defence, while speaking at the University of Ibadan during the launch of a book, ‘70 Years of Progressive Journalism: The Story of the Nigerian Tribune’ said that if he reveals what is currently happening in the country, Nigerians will no longer go to sleep.
“In Yorubaland, everybody seems to have lost their voice, scared. And people appear not to care about what is happening. If I tell you what I know that is happening in Nigeria today, you will no longer sleep,” TY Danjuma said.
“So, Chief Ayo Adebanjo’s warning and advice is very timely. If you want details, I will give it to you privately.
“We are in a big hole as nation. And people who put us in this hole have continued today. So, we’ve to wake up. Only we can save ourselves.
“The fifth columnists’ activities going on among your people are not helping matters. May Almighty God continue to bless this country, but only we can save ourselves from ourselves.”
The leader of the apex Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere, Chief Ayo Adebanjo, had earlier while speaking at the event raised an alarm that the Yorubaland was in danger.
“We’ve been submerged,” Adebanjo said, saying that only few governors in the south-west are responsible for the region.
He further noted that these leaders in the south-west have shut down because they cannot face the head of state (apparently referring to President Muhammadu Buhari).
“Buhari is not ruling the country. He wants to dominate us. I don’t mince words about it. There’s tyranny in the country. There’s anarchy. When the Head of State said there’s no respect for the rule of law, where are the lawyers? The moment there’s no respect for the rule of law, there’s no government again, there’s anarchy,” the Afenifere leader said.
