A former Minister of Defence, Retired General Theophilus Danjuma, has said that if he reveals what is happening in the country, Nigerians will no longer sleep.
He spoke at the University of Ibadan, during the launch of a book, “70 Years of Progressive Journalism: The Story of the Nigerian Tribune and the presentation of Tribune’s Platinum Awards”.
He stated: “In Yoruba land, everybody seems to have lost their voice, scared. And people appear not to care about what is happening. If I tell you what I know that is happening in Nigeria today, you will no longer sleep.
“So, Chief Ayo Adebanjo’s warning and advice is very timely. If you want details, I will give it to you privately.
“We are in a big hole as nation. And people who put us in this hole have continued today. So, we have to wake up. Only we can save ourselves.
“The fifth columnists’ activities going on among your people, are not helping matters. May Almighty God continue to bless this country, but only we can save ourselves from ourselves.”
Earlier, Adebajo, an Afenifere Leader, had raised an alarm that Yoruba land is in danger, saying: “We have been submerged.”
He stated that only a few Governors in the South-West “are responsible for us. They have shut down. They cannot face the Head of State, because of their own shortcomings.
“Buhari is not ruling the country. He wants to dominate us. I do not mince words about it. There is tyranny in the country. There is anarchy. When the Head of State said there is no respect for the rule of law, where are the Lawyers? The moment there is no respect for the rule of law, there is no government again, there is anarchy.”
Elsewhere, the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, said that boko haram has not been technically defeated as claimed by the Buhari Federal Government.
The Monarch also kicked against the Hate Speech Bill before the Senate.
