Femi Fani-Kayode, a former minister of aviation, has said a Bola Ahmed Tinubu presidency in 2023 will not dissuade the agitators of Oduduwa Republic from seeking secession away from Nigeria.

Tinubu, the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and a former two-term governor of Lagos State, is rumoured to be eyeing the office of president in the 2023 general elections.

Fani-Kayode made this known in a post on his Twitter page on Wednesday, JomogNews Nigeria reports.

According to the PDP chieftain, the former Lagos State governor is hated by Yoruba nationalists.

He stated that the hatred for Bola Tinubu would only strengthen the resolve of separatists to actualize Oduduwa.

Fani-Kayode said: “The agitation for Oduduwa Republic cannot be deterred or dissuaded by a Tinubu Presidency.

“As a matter of fact a Tinubu Presidency will only further strengthen the resolve of the separatists.

“This is because no-one is more hated by the Yoruba nationalists than Bola Ahmed Tinubu.”
