Yorubaland is the Glue Holding Nigeria Together
Falae, a previous Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Minister of Finance, Director for Economic Planning, and Managing Director of a bank, addressed in an interview, taking note of that when insecurity or crisis dislodges Nigerians, they discover comfort in the South-West.
He depicted Yorubaland as "the exile camp of Nigeria… where everyone is acknowledged and cared for."
As indicated by him, "we have contributed, maybe, more than most gatherings in Nigeria. To demonstrate my point, if there is an crisis in the East today, where do individuals run to? The South-West. On the off chance that there is a crisis in the North, where will they rushed to? The South-West.
"This is the displaced refugee camp of Nigeria. This is the place everyone is welcome, acknowledged and cared for. That is the venture of harmony we have been making from days of yore.
"Yorubaland has been the paste that holds Nigeria. On the off chance that the South-West says it needs to withdraw, the Middle Belt will battle us since they consider the Yoruba as the concrete that holds Nigeria.
"During the Common War, when the Igbo returned home, Governor Mobolaji Johnson took care of their property for them. Rents were in the banks and when they returned, their cash was given to them to begin life all once more.
"That is true. Be that as it may, the property they left in Port Harcourt were taken over by their neighbors and it took quite a long while before some of them were returned back to the owners.
"We have shown that we are the most obliging, we are the establishing society in Nigeria. Along these lines, its absolutely impossible we can withdraw. This is our home."
The statesman came to the meaningful conclusion while clarifying that rebuilding would take care of a considerable lot of the nation's issues, particularly uncertainty, and that Amotekun was not a secessionist move, as the South-West would consistently be upholding a unified Nigeria.
