The Minister of Grunt for Labour, Festus Keyamo, has alleged that Atiku Abubakar modified into one of the principle Nigerians to abandon the June 12 fight.
Sharing his thoughts by strategy of a set of tweets, Keyamo insisted that no 2023 presidential candidate played a considerable role in the June 12 fight other than for Bola Tinubu and Omoyele Sowore as a pupil chief then.
He went on to insist that Olusegun Obasanjo who modified into before every part against the ride later benefitted from it.
He added that Obasanjo modified into no longer the need of Yorubas in the 1999 polls as a consequence of the share he played in the June 12 struggles.
However, he praised Bola Ahmed Tinubu for the role he played in the ride whereas furthermore claiming that if elected in 2023 it would maybe assuage the feeling of betrayal Yorubas felt when Obasanjo took over energy in 1999.
He wrote: “No Presidential candidate recently had ANYTHING to construct with the June 12 fight (which is the root of democracy we are enjoying recently) other than BAT & (to be correct) Sowore as a pupil chief, but BAT modified into extra pivotal from exile. Atiku modified into one of the principle to abandon June 12.
“After the June 12 fight, ‘strangers’ emerged from nowhere and hijacked the democratic prepare on the center; OBJ who antagonistic June 12 modified into the ideal beneficiary of the fight. The election of BAT in 2023, a exact hero of June 12, will largely address this anomaly of 1999.
“Some feel the Yorubas weren’t compensated by the election of OBJ in 1999; he wasn’t the need of the Yorubas because he betrayed the trigger of June 12, as a consequence of this reality they rejected him on the polls in 1999. The election of BAT in 2023, a June 12 hero, will largely assuage that feeling.
“I will talk about on these because, other than defending NADECO leaders in court with my slack boss Gani Fawehinmi, on Oct. 1, 1994 we launched the National Moral sense ride to fight for June 12 & on June 11, 1995, I along with other comrades had been arrested by the DSS and detained.
“When I left Gani Fawehinmi slack in 1995, I started a childhood ride to forestall the self-succession repeat of Abacha & to oppose Kanu who modified into promoting that repeat. We had been amassing signatures on the streets to petition the UN when we had been picked up by the militia junta & detained.”
