As former Lagos State Governor and acclaimed National Leader of All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu who has received several bashing from all corners over his purported role in the National Assembly crisis has been backed by a group called the Yoruba Youth Congress (YYC).
The YYC yesterday warned against any attempt to drag Tinubu’s name in the mud over political sentiments, describing the APC chieftain as a living hero of democracy.
It also stated that the ex-governor was majorly responsible for making the change desired by the people possible.
In a statement signed by the National President, Prince Dapo Adepoju, the group said, Nigerians should appreciate Tinubu for the role he played in the 2015 presidential election and the struggle for sustenance of democracy in the country.
“Tinubu deserved to be commended for making it possible for the opposition to have a voice in the affairs of the country for the first time since independence.
“We totally condemn a situation where those who put Nigeria into abyss of debt and economic depression are now ganging up again to destabilise the country.
“We therefore urge the citizenry to rally round the present APC government for ample benefits.
“While we are confident that President Buhari’s administration would not disappoint the masses, we want to use this opportunity to enjoin him to be fair in sharing of political offices.
“He should also be wary of the people who may be trying to pitch him against Asiwaju Tinubu for the purpose of achieving their selfish interest”, the group said.
