PARIS, DECEMBER 17, 2016: (DGW) A notable Yoruba leader and founder, Oodua Peoples Congress, OPC, Fredrick Fasehun, has told President Buhari in no uncertain terms to forget votes from the south west geo-political zone ahead of 2019 owing to what he described as the marginalization of the Yorubas in his government.
He made the disclosure during an interview with Saturday Sun newspapers published on December 17, 2016.
The OPC leader while answering questions on many national issues described Buhari the same stubborn and biased leader who is only out to promote northern interests rather than a unifying force for the country.
Speaking on the alleged marginalization of the Yorubas when he was reminded that a Yoruba man occupies the office of the Vice President of Nigeria in Buhari's government, the OPC leader did not mince words in calling Vice President Osinbajo a toothless bulldog serving the interest of his immediate boss, President Muhammadu Buhari.
Asked whether the southwest would still vote for Buhari in 2019 and return him to power, Fasehun said it is not only the south west that would be opposed to Buhari's re-emergence in 2019 but the whole of southern Nigeria and the north seeing that his administration has brought nothing but acute pains to Nigerians.
Below is an abridged version of the interview with Saturday Sun newspapers:
Excerpts:
Can you elaborate on the useful lessons you claim Yoruba have learnt in their marginalization by the Federal Government under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari?
What I meant is that our people must have learnt a bitter lesson from the way they are being treated by the present leadership under President Muhammadu Buhari.
You know as the saying goes, words of elders are words of wisdom. Not only that God used some elders including myself in the run-up to the 2015 general elections, that we should not only raise alarm, but also warn Yoruba about going into any romance or alliance with General Buhari.
When we were raising that alarm, it is not that we have personal hatred or harboured any grudge against Buhari, but our opposition against Buhari was hinged on the fact that this man was in power before and we all knew how he marginalized other sections of the country, promoting only the northern interests.
People complained that time against his style, but Buhari refused to budge, under Buhari’s military leadership then, Nigeria was almost turned into Animal Farm where some animals were equal than others.
As the saying goes, a leopard can’t change its spots, and that was why we warned Nigerians that time, especially the Yoruba, that helping Buhari to get political power would amount to nothing but political suicide. Voting for Buhari or helping Buhari to get political power is like riding on the back of a tiger, and if you are not careful, you end up in the belly of that tiger. This is exactly what is happening today, Buhari has not changed a bit. He has only changed his military garb for civilian attires, but the man still remains the same, stubborn and a biased leader.
Forget whatever his supporters and media handlers are saying, Buhari is pro-North 100 per cent, and he doesn’t care about the feelings of other sections of the country, especially the South. Buhari is not a national leader, it would be wrong for anybody or any genuine patriot to describe Buhari as a national leader. 

However, it is not only the Yoruba that Buhari has marginalised, he has marginalized the entire South. Buhari is Nigeria’s president, but from his actions, he doesn’t behave or act like a leader who sees the entire nation as his constituency.

In what ways do you think Yoruba ethnic group has been marginalized by theFederal Government?


You don’t need to look far before you can see the difference. Look at all the key appointments the president has been making since coming to power, the north is favoured more than the south. It is only inconsequential positions that are being handed Yoruba and other ethnic nationalities. Key appointments and influential positions are given to the north, and it is very unfortunate that some people would always found justification for the president’s action, but Nigerians can’t be fooled.
But some people will say that what do the Yoruba want again under this administration more so that the vice-president, the number 2 man in the administration is a Yoruba man …
Cuts in … Yes it is true that a Yoruba man is the number 2 man, but that is where it all ends. The vice-president is just like deputy governors who have been described by some people as spare tyres. Either you are the vice-president or the deputy-governor, you have nothing to celebrate about, because it is the president and the governors that wield all the power. The deputies are at the mercy of their bosses. The constitution allows little or no specific roles to the vice-president and the deputy governors. They are just glorified public office holders. They are toothless bulldogs. They depend or look up to the crumbs from the president or governors. The vice-president only carry out duties assigned him by the president.
What will be Yoruba’s reaction in the next general election, considering Buhari’s perceived betrayal of the South-west?
The answer is very simple. Buhari should forget South-west in 2019. People’s eyes are open now and not only in Yorubaland, even in the North people are tired of Buhari’s administration.
Apart from betrayal or no betrayal, what has Buhari done to deserve coming back? Almost two years into his administration, Nigerians have become more pauperized. There is pain and hunger in the land. Nigerians are really angry with this APC government.
Initially, when they were coming into office, were Nigerians not cheering Buhari and APC, but what is the situation today? Those Nigerians who were cheering Buhari and APC are now jeering at them. People are fed up. Even in the North, people are clamouring for change. When people shout APC in those days, others would respond Change, but today when you shout APC instead of people replying you with “Change”, they are replying “APC Shame.”


Buhari and other APC leaders should read the handwriting on the wall, and start doing the needful, because 2019 is almost here with us, and millions of Nigerians are eager to punish Buhari and APC with their votes.
