It’s no longer news that, Nigerians were shocked to learn of Deji Adeyanju’s resignation from the group he co-convened to hold government accountable; upon which he was arrested severally and put behind bars for criticising the policies of the Federal Government.
“Dear Nigerians, , I have resigned my membership of OurMumuDonDo. I no longer have confidence in the leader of the movement, CharlyBoy.
He betrayed the cause while I was away in prison and compromised with the oppressors. Thank you,” he had written on Twitter.
Vanguard gathered that other reasons behind the breakup of the two partners within the civil society space, had to do with Charlyboy’s alleged disregard for due process and accountability in the handling of the finances of the movement.
His deafening silence during Deji’s recent incarceration was perceived by some members of the group as a sign of betrayal and compromise with those behind Adeyanju’s travail.
However, in an exclusive chat with our correspondent, Charlyboy dismissed the allegations against him as cheap blackmail; noting that Deji’s grouse had to do with his refusal to transform the group into a platform for seeking personal financial gain.
Group accuses politicians of using Banga rice to influence vote He said: “Ignore him (Deji), I am not prepared to share any money. We are not in the business of sharing money. We are not a political party. What we are doing in the group is struggle for a better nation.
Deji was at my residence a day before his social media rant. He didn’t tell me anything about his planned resignation from the group. If he had real issues against me, he would have raised them when he came over to my place.”
On his silence during Deji’s recent detention, Charlyboy said he had no comments to make to the press.
