APC: Cabal planning 'MKO Abiola' treatment for you – Fayose says in open letter to Tinubu

Ayodele Fayose, a former Governor of Ekiti State has cautioned the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Ahmed Tinubu that he is likely to get ‘the MKO Abiola’ treatment during the presidential primary of the party by the powerful cabal within the presidency.

The former governor made this known in an open letter to the former Lagos state governor which he personally signed.

According to Fayose, Tinubu who is one of the leading candidates in the party is swimming against the tide and should proceed with extreme caution.

The letter read in part, “Going by the handwritings that are now clearly on the wall, if I may consider sir, I see you as one that may be swimming against the political tide of the cabal in your party.

“They are equally preparing for your actions and reactions and are fully set to contain same as they did to both Awolowo and Abiola.

“Unfortunately, your kingdom has been badly balkanised if what happened in Abeokuta is anything to go by.”

Fayose added, “for reasons of not being misrepresented, I will like to stop here and allow you to take your decisions, good or bad as a wise full-grown adult whom you are.

“The book of Proverbs 22 verse 3 reads, ‘Sensible people will see trouble coming and avoid it but unthinking people will walk into it’.”

MKO Abiola was the acclaimed winner of the June 12, 1993, Presidential election but was denied victory and the result was annulled.

Abiola was eventually detained by the military government of General Sani Abacha the following year for declaring himself President. He died four years later.
