The All Progressives Congress (APC) Committee on Diaspora Chairmen has advised President-elect Bola Tinubu to beware of sycophants.
The party chieftains expressed reservations about some developments ahead of Tinubu’s inauguration on May 29.
Bola Babarinde, Secretary of the APC body led by Prof. Adesegun Labinjo, issued a statement on Monday in Lagos.
The diaspora committee demands that the reward system under Tinubu’s government be sacrosanct.
Babarinde said those around the President-elect must also be wary of praise singers and “strange bedfellows”.
The chieftain complained of how youths are being assembled “to handle some aspects on the national level to celebrate the inauguration”.
“This is very insulting to those that lay their lives for the success of our principal,” the statement reads.
Babarinde said some persons getting roles displayed “hatred” to Tinubu during electioneering but are now “lobbying to be part of the success”.
“The incoming administration should be careful about enemies of progress now within the corridor of power.”
Babarinde advised Tinubu and his team to identify those that genuinely worked for APC’s victory at the polls and reward them accordingly.
