Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to choose between a Yoruba nation or restructuring Nigeria.
Naija News reports that Gani Adams stated this while speaking in Osogbo, Osun State, at the leadership training organised for the leadership of the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC) in the state on Thursday.
According to the OPC leader, Nigeria was designed for only northerners, especially the Fulani.
The Yoruba leader backed a proposal by the Southwest governors for regional autonomy.
“We will not use guns or disrupt the peace of the society. Nigeria is made for Fulanis, Yorubas should wake up to the call and fight for their rights which they are being deprived of,” he said.
He also backed Prof Banji Akintoye in his diplomatic way of attaining struggle without violence.
“Yoruba one voice in the diaspora will join ‘One Million March’ in the UN. Any reasonable person that sees the way Nigeria is going will choose regional autonomy or self-determination. We can’t continue to languish in poverty, in fear because our life is not safe.
“We can’t continue to be in a country where our future is not guaranteed, we can’t be in a country whereby we will be a second or third-class citizen,” he added.
