Some loyalists of the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, under the aegis of ‘I Stand With Bola Tinubu’ will on Saturday stage a solidarity walk against alleged sideline of the former Lagos State governor.
The group’s Media Team Chairman, Tijani Oluwadamilare said the group was ready for the work even though it has been challenged by lack of funds.
“Hundreds of people are ready to participate in the walk on Saturday (today). Although, I am not totally happy with what is happening at the moment, as we have not been able to raise enough funds as we had hoped. We all remain unshaken. Many of those we had hoped would render financial assistance to us are not forthcoming; most of them keep blaming (the) recession for their inability to provide financial assistance as earlier promised. But despite all these, we all look forward to having the walk tomorrow,” he said.
Tijani said the walk was to send a message that Yoruba people will not watch as their elders are being disrespected.
“We all know what happened to past Yoruba leaders such as Chief Obafemi Awolowo, who were subjected to diverse forms of ridicule. We do not want this to happen again, especially not to the person of Tinubu who is a Yoruba leader now,” he said.
