  • Former Lagos State Governor and the National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has warned politicians not to demoralize humanitarian efforts aimed at alleviating hardship in the society.
  • Tinubu said he had to issue the warning for fear that some malevolent elements may try to undermine and destroy the noble humanitarian effort because of their political opposition to him.

Former Lagos State Governor and the National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has warned politicians not to demoralize humanitarian efforts aimed at alleviating hardship in the society.

The APC chieftain gave the warning while reacting to the distribution of rice bearing his name in the northern part of the country.

In a statement by his media aide, Tunde Rahman, on Sunday, Tinubu said he had to issue the warning “for fear that some malevolent elements may try to undermine and destroy the noble humanitarian effort because of their political opposition to him or simply because they have no love for their fellow man”.

“If these actors want to fight Asiwaju, so be it. But they should have the minimal decency to leave poor people alone and not to disturb or disrupt attempts to alleviate the hardships of the hungry and struggling among us,” Tinubu stated.

The former governor stressed that he is not behind the distribution of the rice, just as he commended the efforts of the various volunteer groups responsible for the “benign act of charity” and love for one another.

He, however, warned that the volunteer groups should get the items from trusted and reliable suppliers while those who are receiving the rice and other items being distributed should only take such things from people they know and trust, saying “Sadly, just as we have true humanitarians among us, our society also has many who hate others and who would try to wreck the noble humanitarian of others”.
