Yoruba Nation: Don’t Come To Ondo, Akeredolu Warns Sunday Igboho

Published

Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State has warned Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho Adeyemo and others agitating for a sovereign Yoruba State to stay away from the state.

Naija News reports that supporters of the activist stormed Lagos State on Sunday where they organized a rally to create more awareness on the need for the creation of Yoruba Nation.

Speaking while swearing in Princess Catherine Oladunni Odu as the new Secretary to the State Government on Monday, Akeredolu said Ondo people have decided to stay in the Federal Republic of Nigeria as constituted at present.

Akeredolu said no part of the entire state, known and delineated as Ondo State, would permit any gathering or agitation of Yoruba nation.

He said the right of citizens to discuss, agitate and even fight to right perceived wrongs, culminating in self-determination, must be done within known and acceptable parameters and all concerned must agree to pursue the same objectives to achieve a desirable or desired end.

He noted that the reasons for the declaration of hostilities must not be fleeting fancies of disaffection engendered by perceived politics of exclusion for personal benefits.

Akeredolu, however, condemned the attack on the convoy of the Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, and urged security agencies to unmask the agents of darkness bent on throwing the country into a state of anarchy.
