The founder and spiritual leader of One Love Family sect, Satguru Maharaj Ji, on Monday, advised Yoruba leaders to sheathe their swords over the book released by the former Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Bisi Akande.
Recall that Akande in his autobiography titled, ‘My Participations’, has claimed that the National Leader of the APC, Bola Tinubu, built the house of the leader of pan-Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere, Ayo Adebanjo.
According to Akande, the 93-year-old Afenifere leader pestered Tinubu to build him the house in Lekki, Lagos State.
He wrote, “One day, Sir Olaniwun (Ajayi) was launching a book at Muson Centre, Lagos. After the book presentation, Tinubu said I should not go and that he would like to see me. We met in a small room where he also invited Sir Olaniwun Ajayi. ‘Papa, you can see that this document is old, Tinubu said as he handed over a big envelope to Ajayi. This is your C of O (Certificate of Occupancy).
“Tinubu told me later that after he presented Adebanjo’s C of O to him, Adebanjo was always pestering Tinubu until he helped build a house on the plot. The street was also named in honour of Adebanjo and he is living in that house now at Lekki Phase One.”
Akande in the book also condemned the former Governor of Osun State, Olagunsoye Oyinlola; ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo and other elder statesmen who are critics of President Muhammadu Buhari’s government.
Guru Maharaj Ji while speaking with newsmen on Monday advised Adebanjo and other Yoruba leaders to sheath their swords and extend love to one another.
He said, “Even if Baba Akande said that Tinubu built his (Adebanjo’s) house, he (Adebanjo) should have said yes, in the name of peace. We cannot stand the stench anymore, to err is human, we don’t want any dividing tongue.”
