A group, the Yoruba Council of Youths Worldwide has called on the Kaduna State Governor Nasir el-Rufai not to interfere in Lagos matter.
The group warned the governor to desist from acts that could earn him disgrace from the Yoruba nation.
Addressing reporters in Lagos, the council’s president, Aremo Oladotun Hassan, said the statement credited to el-Rufai saying he would teach Lagosians how to end Godfatherism was “abysmally insulting”.
The group advised El-Rufai to look into the ongoing insecurity in Kaduna where he has failed woefully to act instead of dabbling into Lagos issue.
“You lack the credibility to utter such seditious statement in a Yoruba land,” the group told El-Rufai.
El-Rufai had postulated ways to end “godfatherism” in Lagos last weekend at a function in the metropolis.
However, the group stated, “Our so-called ‘godfatherism’ system helped in sustaining the struggle against opposition in Nigeria and led to the building of the strong political party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), that made it possible for the enthronement of President Muhammadu Buhari, which also helped the same el-Rufai become the Kaduna State Governor.”
