Tinubu tackled Adeyemi on Monday while the latter was contributing to a motion raised by Niger East Senator, Sani Musa, that Boko Haram has hoisted its flag in a Shiroro Local Government Area of the state.
Adeyemi, who is a member of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) like Tinubu, said it is time to put away politics and call out President Muhammadu Buhari over the growing cases of insecurity in Nigeria.
He said the country is facing the worst instability since the civil war, adding that the security system has collapsed and innocent citizens are the receiving end.
“Mr President, insecurity is a serious problem today in Nigeria and there come a time where we can do nothing, but to speak the truth irrespective of sentiment.
“Today Mr. President, all of us are being threatened. A lot has been said this morning Mr. President and I want to thank you for giving us time to speak expressly on this issue.”
“This is the worst instability we are facing. In fact this is worse than the civil war,” Adeyemi said.
But Tinubu interrupted him, asking: “Are you in PDP (Peoples Democratic Party)? Are you a wolf in sheep’s clothing?”
Adeyemi, however, ignored her comments and continued: “We cannot pretend that we are capable of handling the situation in our hands. America, as powerful as they are, when the pandemic came, it came to a point China came to their rescue.
“We shouldn’t pretend that we need foreign support now. Billions of naira has been voted for security services and nothing is coming out of it. We wouldn’t wait until our nation got burnt. Let us get up and call for foreign support.
“I am APC man and I have been supporting our party, but let the President know that we who support APC could no longer keep quiet.
“The President must rise to the occasion. The nation is on fire; the President must rise to the occasion. It cost us nothing to get foreign support. We must rise to the occasion of speaking the truth to save this country or else we will be consumed.
“Everyone of us has a chapter of history. When the history of this period is told, whatever is our position will be a chapter.
“We cannot keep quiet any longer. It has gotten to a level that we can no longer sleep with our eyes closed. Our children are not free. The President must rise to the occasion.
“The situation is our security system has collapsed; it has failed, because it has failed, we need foreign support, it cost Nigeria nothing. Forget the ego, forget Nigeria in the African nation.”
