Presidential candidate of the Young Progressives Party (YPP), Professor Kingsley Moghalu, has labeled President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, a bunch of “recycled politicians, with their incompetence and their tired, divisive politics”.
In a statement sent to Pulse, Moghalu said it is appalling that the APC led federal government has been dividing Nigerians along tribal and ethnic lines with promises of the presidency in 2023.
“Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo’s reported recent statement at the palace of the Alaafin of Oyo that ethnic Yoruba should vote for President Buhari in 2019 so that the Yoruba will produce the President of Nigeria in 2023 is a sad and disappointing appeal to tribalism in leadership selection in the 21st century”, Moghalu said.
He added that; “that this statement comes from an educated personage as Prof. Osinbajo shows us why we must turn our backs collectively on the recycled old politicians as represented by the APC and PDP.
“We must say NO to tribalism and ethnic irredentism. The twin evils have caused much damage to our national unity, leaving us a broken country when we should by now have become a real nation”.
