The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and presidential hopeful, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his loyalist have been warned to stop describing Vice President Yemi Osinbajo as a betrayer.
Edujandon.com reports that following Osinbajo’s declaration of his intention to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari, loyalists and groups in support of Tinubu’s presidential ambition have continously attacked the VP.

These individuals and group have tagged Osinbajo as a betrayer, going as far as likening the nation’s number two citizen to Judas Iscariot who betrayed the Biblical Jesus and Akintola who betrayed the late sage, Obafemi Awolowo – in reference to the 1962 Action Group crisis which was a result of the struggle for power between two political leaders of the Western Region and Action Group (AG), Chief Awolowo and Chief Samuel Ladoke Akintola.

Speaking in an interview with Independent on Saturday, Olabode George, a former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) accused Bola Tinubu of being the real betrayer.

George, a well known critic of the former Lagos State governor, said Tinubu lacked the moral right to accuse Osinbajo of betrayal.

He said “What goes round must come round. Almighty God is awesome in his ways and only the truth can make you free. Tinubu has no right to call Osinbajo all kinds of names just because he also said he wants to contest for presidency in their party.

“Tinubu has been a serial betrayer himself. Has he forgotten how he got the AD governorship ticket in 1999? It was ‘Omoluwabi Eko, the late Engr. Funsho Williams that won the ticket. however, they shortchanged him and he (Tinubu) became the beneficiary of that shortchange.

“My take is that both of them should account for the ownership of Alpha Beta which has been fleecing Lagos state since year 2000”
