I want to talk about this Uncld Yinka Ayefele’s building.
I have been tired of this country and the disregard Artistes like myself have to endure daily.
This Uncle Yinka’s case shows you that no matter how big you become,no matter how inspiring your story.
Nigeria doesn’t care.

It is totally sardonic and evil act. The demolition of Yinka Ayefele Radio station is politically arranged by Ajimobi and his members. Now, what will be his gain?
Investing in Nigeria is totally discourage and strongly dissatisfied.

The reports of the demolition of a radio station in Oyo fills me with a deep sadness. Press freedom is sacrosanct.

If Yinka Ayefele had built that radio station in England or America, he would have received an award. He built it in Nigeria to provide jobs and he received bulldozers instead. Yet we say we want investors.

I have read arguments for and against Oyo State governments demolition of Yinka Ayefele’s building. Whatever the intentions, Governor Isiaka Abiola @AAAjimobi came out looking vindictive, his PR machine must now be in complete shambles. His own recorded voice now indicting him.

Criticize and be dealt with.
This is the APC way.

Pray for the hundreds who have lost their jobs as a result of this… in this woeful economy.

On the demolition of Yinka Ayefele’s media house by the @oyostategovt, there are questions as to why the government proceeded despite a pending suit.

Yinka Ayefele’s travails are another reminder of two of Nigeria’s biggest problems:
1) Absence of press freedom
2) Insecure property rights
Both have worsened significantly under Buhari.

Gov. Ajimobi of Oyo State demolishes Yinka Ayefele’s Music House valued at N800m.
For a minute, forget the substance of the case… didn’t a court give an injunction not to demolish?
What do we expect from a man who insulted students of his state? An insult on the rule of law. pic.twitter.com/AsTHSYulBt
— Dr. Njakiri Damages (@DrDamages) August 20, 2018
The people of Oyo state watched in absolute horror as Governor Ajimobi, emboldened by collective silence on his innumerable despotic acts took it a step further to demolish Yinka Ayefele’s station for daring to criticize his government.
This cannot continue
