    Tinubu ‘Killed’ #EndSARS Protest Because Of 2023 Presidential Ambition – Kanu

    Tinubu's Reign Over, Sowore Now New Yoruba Leader - Nnamdi Kanu

    The leader of the proscribed Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has submitted that the #EndSARS protest failed in part due to the 2023 presidential ambition of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

    The pro-Biafra agitator alleged that the Yoruba region allowed themselves to be used based on the deception that Tinubu, a national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) will emerge president of Nigeria in 2023.

    Kanu argued that politicians from the region feared that if the #EndSARS protest continued, Nigeria will collapse and they may lose the chance of having someone from the region as President of the country.

    The IPOB leader made the allegation in a special live broadcast on Sunday where he argued that the protest should have been better planned and executed to achieve needed results for the oppressed people to regain their freedom from the oppressors.

    He added that some sections of the Yoruba region allowed themselves to be manipulated to end the protests without achieving any result.

    He said, “The Yoruba are trying to protect their interests because they know, by 2023, there is every likelihood that they may rig Tinubu into office.

    “I remember EndSARS very well. When you come out for a revolution, you must go to the end. When next you are planning to protest, go and study the history of revolution – Russian, French and the George Washington revolution in America. If you think a revolution is to come out on the streets, dance to musicians, no, it is not.

    “When the revolution failed was when the Yoruba media allowed themselves to be used. They thought if Nigeria collapsed, Tinubu would not be president in 2023. They kept bringing in tribal, religion and other issues. Had we remained on the streets, forgetting about the palliatives, by now, the zoo would have collapsed.

    “They (the Fulani) know that it becomes impossible to penetrate us. So for them to succeed, they have to bring a very clever plot. Unfortunately, the Yoruba media is in support and I have warned them repeatedly. I have warned my Yoruba friends that this double game you are playing will consume you.

    “And today, they are in Yoruba land, killing and taking over their forests. If not for the bravery of the Eastern Security Network, I do not think that the Amotekun would have the courage to confront the Fulani herdsmen in their forests.”

    Meanwhile, the Chairman, Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC), Prof. Itse Sagay (SAN), says the National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, is free to contest in the 2023 general elections.

    Sagay, a senior advocate of Nigeria, noted that the former Lagos State Governor is a potential presidential can­didate, who can lead the county very well.

    Speaking with Daily Independent, Sagay said it was the turn of southern­ers to produce the next President to ensure justice and fairness and protect the unity of the nation.
