A former governor of Ekiti State and leader of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Ayodele Fayose, has warned a national leader and All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, to beware of dangers in his quest to secure his presidential ticket from the party for the 2023 election because he may be swimming against the political tide of the cabal within the APC.
Fayose, in an open letter to Tinubu on Monday, said he chose to write to the former Governor of Lagos State following the latter’s explosion in Abeokuta, State of Ogun last week as he addressed party delegates, which he said was an indication that the APC national leader saw the political danger ahead and he reacted.
“I write based on my observed opinions and possible dangers to your well-being against tomorrow.
“One of the undeniable facts is your outburst in Abeokuta, which clearly indicates that you clearly saw a political danger to which you reacted. This informed the basis of my writing for you now.
“I have also read the reactions of your political allies both in the North and in the South. The reactions made me very worried about you and your life. Again, I see the danger!
“As the knowledgeable student of history that you are; our deceased great sage, Chief Obafemi Awolowo and the famous winner of the general elections of June 12, 1993; Alhaji Moshood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola, were led to Golgotha by self-proclaimed “champions of democracy”. I’m sure the same people can advise you to ignore my advice.
“From the writings that are now clearly on the wall, if I may say so, sir, I see you as someone who may be swimming against the political tide of the cabal in your party. They also prepare for your actions and reactions and are fully prepared to contain the same as in Awolowo and Abiola.
“Unfortunately, your kingdom has been badly balkanized if what happened in Abeokuta is to be believed,” Fayose said.
He advised Tinubu to consider a verse from the Holy Bible – Proverbs chapter 22 verse 3 (The Translations of the Good News), which says, “Sound people will see trouble coming and avoid it, but thoughtless people will work at it. “
Fayose then added, “for the sake of not being misrepresented, I would like to stop here and allow you to make your decisions, good or bad as the wise adult that you are.”
