Is there a cold war brewing between the national leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, and Afenifere’s spokesman, Yinka Odumakin? 

Tinubu on Wednesday, came after Odumakin for criticising his suggestion that the Federal Government should take over unoccupied and isolated land in the country and convert them to grazing reserves.

Tinubu had on Monday made the suggestion during a seminar organised by The Nation newspaper and TVC in Abuja.


But reacting to the suggestion on Tuesday, Afenifere, in a statement by Odumakin, warned Tinubu against playing politics with the lives of Nigerians, saying his suggestion was backward for modern-day Nigeria.

Odumakin said Tinubu’s suggestion was tantamount to an endorsement of the alleged call by the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association that the entire country should be converted into a cattle colony.

However, responding to Odumakin’s criticism on Wednesday, Tinubu, in a statement by his media aide, Tunde Rahman, said the only deserving response to the Afenifere spokesman was that “he needs a cure for his seeming selective comprehension.”

According to Rahman, Odumakin did not read Tinubu’s full speech before attacking the APC chieftain.
