I see no reason why the Yorubas should vote Buhari - Akin Osuntokun

The stubborn fact of the scientific imagination and reasoning is that it holds true for all seasons and so it is with the prescription of federalism for Nigeria. It was true in 1948, 1960, 1970, 1993 as it is true today.
As tomorrow looms large on the horizon of Nigeria’s destiny, I feel called upon to make a restatement of the germane positions that I had taken, especially in the last several months. Going forward to the 2015 general elections I had been guided and instructed by a strategic and tactical purpose in my reflections-that is the long and short term perspective.

At all times, it is imperative (with the accomplishment of the objective in view) that we are able to delineate and reconcile both. The strategy is the overall framework within which tactics are accommodated and deployed; and strategies are effective only in so far at it motivates the tactic; and to the extent that they are in a general and continuous state of interaction and responsiveness. There must be inherent harmony and conformity between the two.
