It no longer new to us that some regions in Nigeria have made up their mind to separate from the country. One among them is the Yorubas who are agitating for the Oodua Republic. Many people have supported the agitation here in Nigeria and diaspora, but as the campaign continues in Nigeria, the YWG has spoken against the agitation and warned the protesters and their leaders over the campaign.
During the call for the Yoruba Nation in Ibadan on Saturday, the agitators affirmed that they will disrupt the 2023 presidential election if the government doesn't consider their agitation before then.
After the campaign, the Yoruba Welfare Group (YWG) breaks the silence by issuing a warning message to the agitators and their leaders, claiming they want to disrupt the love and peace of Yorubaland and besides the agitators are not the ones to determine what to do in their land for them.
The president of the YWG, Abdulhakeem Alawuje while speaking accused the self-acclaimed leaders' of the Oodua campaign, Professor Banji Akintoye that he's just trying to gain popularity but it's so sad that the masses succumb themselves to be used to disrupt the peace of Yoruba land.
He added that he's giving all the agitators the last warning to desist from the campaign, claiming it's unnecessary.
He also warned Professor Akintoye to stop parading himself as the Yoruba leader because he can compete with Alaafin of Oyo and Ooni of Ife.
