… says ‘activist, not Yahaya Bello, isn’t serious’
The Northern Emancipation Network (NEN) says activist, Deji Adeyanju and not Governor Yahaya Bello should be the one not to be taken seriously.
The Group, reacting to Adeyanju’s post on his Facebook wall that Governor Yahaya Bello’s presidential ambition should not be taken seriously by Nigerians, said such remarks were “the hallmark of fake activists like Adeyanju who infest the streets of Abuja feeding on blackmail.”
The Group’s Coordinator, Suleiman Abbah, in a swift reaction on Saturday, described Adeyanju and his ilk as “commercial activists who take stipends to do other people’s dirty jobs.”
NEN stated, “We find it ridiculous for someone like Adeyanju, an identified fake activist, who has no defined principle to attempt to challenge the credibility of a man who has had the mandate to rule a whole state two times.
“Adeyanju should sooner begin to realise that Nigerians have got to see through his brand of extortionist activism and have never taken him seriously.
“He should know that his brand of cash and carry activism had been phased out long ago and Nigeria is today living in times of great changes not to be distracted by scam masters disguised in the robe of activism.
“For all we know, Adeyanju does not have the capacity and the necessary credibility to be voted even as local government councilor in his village and should therefore hide his face when men with the courage to lead and aspire higher are talking.”
