Former Governor of Ekiti State Ayo Fayose advised President-elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to ensure that he reorganized and united the people of Yoruba under his leadership.
In an interview on Fresh FM on Monday, in Ibadan, the capital of Oyo State, Fayose lamented that the nation of Yoruba had been “wretchedly divided and divided” and that the restoration of unity It’s going to be a great legacy for Tinubu.

However, Fayose instructed Tinubu to be magnanimous in victory and appointed opposition members to his cabinet, urging him not to become the sole chairman of the APC members.

“I cannot set an agenda for Tinubu. If this is truly his ambition before now and he knows what he went through to get this far, he must set his own agenda.

“The only thing I would like to say to Tinubu and this one is personal to me as a Yoruba man is that the Yoruba Nation needs to be re-ordered.

“Tinubu should not be the president of APC in the South-West. He should be the president and father of the Yoruba Nation and bring us all together.

“After the demise of most of these leaders, things will go bad [in Yorubaland]. One of the legacies Asiwaju should leave is to rally the Yoruba people and bring us together, draw everybody together.

“When he is making appointments and he wants it only for APC members, he will fail. He should invite members of the opposition and draw everybody close and listen to us on how the Yoruba Nation can come together.

“The Yoruba Nation has lost it. We are badly balkanised and divided. Because Asiwaju is a Yoruba man, he must bring the Yoruba people together.

“We are angry and that is why you see the agitation for Yoruba Nation. But they have given us a Yoruba president now. He has a lot to do.

“Oduduwa Republic cannot happen. Arewa Republic cannot happen and Igbo or Biafra Republic cannot happen. It is a sheer waste of time.

“We have gone far in the day to call for division. How do we share our debt? How do we share those things? So, let’s stop deceiving ourselves and stop creating tension.

“Already, there is tension in the East, North, South and West. Asiwaju, God will help you. Thank God you were elected as president.

“So, remember that if you don t put the Yoruba Nation together, history will not be kind to you.

“This Yoruba Nation must be united going forward under your leadership. Put us together. Get us busy in Yorubaland. Don’t be president of APC alone. If you do that, your case will be worse than that of Olusegun Obasanjo,” the former governor said.

He also rallied support for the reelection of governor Seyi Makinde, describing him as the best and only option for the people of the State.
