JUST IN: Yorubas set to break away from Nigeria, maps out Oduduwa Republic from the Nigerian map

Chief Ayo Adebanjo, a leading Yoruba elder statesman has called for the restructuring of Nigeria as a matter of urgency because all factors in the country point to disintegration.

According to him, the Yoruba nation is ready to break away because some radicals among them has gone far to the extent of drawing a map of the proposed Oduduwa republic.

Chief Adebanjo said this in an interview with The Sun.

We are going for disintegration. That is what I am sorry about. You cannot keep the country together like this. You would continually be suppressing there and suppressing there. The Southern Kaduna affair, the people there shouted against regionalism, because of the oppression there.

“They said the Fulani were oppressing them. If you look at the recommendations of the 2014 National Confab, we said any area that has economic interests are free to stay together after a referendum of 71 per cent. That was how we brought in regionalism. We did all that to make sure we stay together.

If you look at the agitation of the South South, South East, they are not even insisting on restructuring; it is restructuring within Nigeria or outside of it. We even understand that some radical Yoruba have drawn the map of the Oduduwa Republic and all that, but we are keeping them down," he said.

Adding that: “There is an advantage in the economy of scale but we cannot keep them down for too long when we know that they are being cheated. We say those areas that they feel they are being cheated; let us iron it out so that we can stay together. What is wrong with that?”
