Diaspora Group Promises To Enlighten Yoruba On Self-determination

Manager of the pageants, Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Abiodun Ige Adams

A SOUTH-WEST Diaspora group, Yoruba One Voice (YOV), yesterday, said it would embark on aggressive enlightenment and education of all Yoruba indigenes on the need for self-determination.

According to the group, the enlightenment would involve a special YouTube channel that highlights the advantages of a Yoruba nation, relentless interaction with people at the grassroots, both in the markets, schools and every available place, on the subject matter and other means possible.

The Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland and grand patron of YOV, Iba Gani Adams, who spoke during fifth edition of the group’s global conference held via zoom, also told the Federal Government about the possibilities of the agitations for self-determination becoming more forceful if concerted efforts are not put in place to address critical issues threatening the foundation of Nigeria.

He said that the ongoing process to the coming 2023 general elections was even pitching the ethnic nationalities against one another the more, which according to YOV, is an indication that the country may be more vulnerable to disunity and break-up after the elections if the needful is not done.

The group, which warned the Federal Government and politicians against clamping down on self-determination agitators, said that every ethnic nationality had the right to seek justice, fair-play and good governance, as well as self-determination, when it becomes very necessary.

The Yoruba diaspora organisation also identified prolonged insecurity, bad economy and loss of hope as a recipe for seeking self-autonomy by various ethnic nationalities.

“The present situation in the country is setting Nigeria up for an imminent break-up within two years.

“Yoruba’s quest for self-autonomy or an independent nation should not be a crime. There are countries all over the world that sought their freedom peacefully. Majority of Yoruba in the Diaspora are seeking self-determination because the experience back home is harrowing.

“If Nigeria was good, none of us would have sought the exit door from this country. We would have buried the cause of the struggle.

“But the struggle for a Yoruba nation became more prominent when it was obvious that Nigeria could not sustain the tempo of the ravaging unrest and economic downturn,” the group stated.

It, therefore, urged the National Assembly to consider granting regional autonomy to the six geo-political zones if the option of restructuring is not veritable.
