There’s mixed reactions on social media concerning the statement made by the All Progressives Congress National Chairman, Bola Tinubu, on the controversial Operation Amotekun.
Tinubu, in a statement released on Wednesday, said he intentionally didn’t speak on the issue and those that had been challenging to speak were doing so for their personal interests.
While some social media users have been praising him for the stance, others have been condemning him for “speaking from both sides of his mouth.”
See some tweets below:
Àmòtékùn development in D West has shown us D truth about D regions leaders. D deafening silence of @ProfOsinbajo , Ashiwaju Tinubu, Fashola & D rest of them, speaks eloquently of D quality of their leadership. THEY ARE READY TO SACRIFICE THEIR PEOPLE'S INTEREST FOR PATRONAGE!

LOL…I just read Tinubu's very long take on Amotekun and I must tell you the man is millions of miles ahead of his critics and self appointed political opponents in brilliance and articulation

When you are done reading the Tinubu's statement on Amotekun, you would understand the reason he's always ahead of his contenders. Tinubu is unarguable the most wisest and intelligent politician in Nigeria and Africa as a continent. Respect!!! pic.twitter.com/rUOjVVk3t1

Expect Tinubu minions to start jumping all over Amotekun today – their master has received clearance from his own masters so now they can talk, and probably muddy the whole issue with ethnic sentiments.
They and Miyetti Allah can continue the conversation, bigots versus bigots.
