A pro-Yoruba agenda, Chief Remilekun Tijani Usman, has challenged both Vice President Professor Yemi Osinbajo and Minister of Interior Rauf Aregbesola to openly declare their support for the All Progressive Congress, APC, presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Usman, who stated this in a statement made available to journalists in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital, added that their silence is not the best.
The Tinubu loyalist challenged Osinbajo and Aregbesola to make their stands known to the public as beneficiaries and products of the former Lagos State governor political dynasty.
He pledged to support Tinubu’s campaign with N100 million donation while urging the duo to take a cue from Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, who is campaigning rigorously for Tinubu to be president.
Usman said, “If those who are not from Yorubaland including northerners are not hiding their support for Asiwaju Tinubu, one wonders why our brothers whose political journey cannot be completed without Tinubu’s influence are yet to be mobilizing and working secretly and openly for him.
“There may be differences but they should resolve and bury their hatchet in the interest of Southwest, Yoruba and give Tinubu the best support he deserves from them.

“I also want to say that Osinbajo, Aregbesola and others who are in the same category of aggrieved party members should direct their supporters to do so and join various campaign group.”
He added, “Don’t let us go to war with a divided team, we need genuine reconciliation and support for the task ahead because it is a must win for Yorubaland.”
