The national leader of All Progressive Congress (APC) and former Lagos Governor, Bola Tinubu has declared that he stood for true federalism. Tinubu stated this at the birthday anniversary of Chief Ayo Adebanjo.
He was one of the speakers at the formal launch of an autobiography in commemoration of the 90th birthday anniversary of Chief Adebanjo, titled, “Telling It As It Is”, held in Lagos.
“He (Adebanjo) stood for restructuring, which is true federalism; about freedom and about an opportunity for each federating unit to come up with their blueprint to promote the unity of the nation.
“I am with him on this; he has been a father to all of us in politics and he is ready to pay the supreme price.”
“Ayo Adebanjo is a great leader, who was principally committed to constitutional democracy in this nation. You can praise and honour him for his stand on this nation,” he added.
