Meanwhile, the pan-Yoruba socio-political organization stated yesterday that it paid Bola Tinubu, the former governor of Lagos State, a visit for humanitarian reasons.

“The visit of our leaders to former Governor Bola Tinubu is simply on humanitarian grounds,” Ajayi told journalists after the meeting. He is a Yoruba son. We do not forsake ourselves. Afenifere members are Omoluabis and humanists.

What the leaders have done is the hallmark of thoroughbred Yoruba men and women. We may disagree on principles but we are not political enemies. Even if there is a disagreement on issues, it does not mean that we should not relate.

“The interest of the Yoruba is what is uppermost in our minds.”
