Buhari Has Worsened The Situation In Nigeria- Yoruba Group
Several Yoruba Groups under the auspices of Yoruba Self-Determination Advancement Forum, YOSEDAF have threatened to break out of Nigeria should restructuring be kept on hold in the country.
According to them, the answer to the nation’s issue is restructuring.
NIGERIA NEWS gathered that the coalition comprises of over 60 Yoruba groups and they will either break away or stay with the Presidential candidate that is ready to restructure the nation ahead of 2019.
According to them, they are currently negotiating with, “former Vice-President, Atiku Abubakar; a former Central Bank of Nigeria Deputy Governor, Kingsley Moghalu, or any other presidential candidate who has strong commitment to restructure the country.”
The group which passed a vote of no confidence on Muhammadu Buhari revealed via a statement as signed by its Convener, Evangelist ‘Kunle Adesokan, and Secretary, Kola Are that Buhari has worsened the situation of Nigeria since his assumption of office as President.
The Statement reads, “instead of restructuring, expansionist agenda, under the guise of cattle business with land-grabbing as the ultimate goal, has torpedoed the fragile unity of the country more than ever before.”
“With the situation on the ground, the Yoruba were seriously contemplating the likelihood of exiting Nigeria.”
“Indeed, that route is no longer a foreclosed option in the light of prevailing circumstances in the country since the injustice of June 12 was perpetrated,” it said.
“Our desire is that political participation would be based on restructuring and genuine federalism. In the last 19 years, however, our elite have either watered down our democratic ideals or consciously abandoned them.”
“Those who rode to power on the back of such popular quests are today the greatest apologists of one Nigeria, at all costs – even at the expense of the Yoruba people.”
“They really do not care if marauding herdsmen unleash terror on their people, insofar as they are in control of the government in the South-West. Such arrant nonsense cannot be allowed to continue,” the coalition said.
According to them, “despite that Atiku was being accused of corruption, if he could guarantee the coalition of his readiness to restructure the country, YOSEDAF would support him.”
He added, “You will come and sit down with us; we will negotiate and have an agreement. If it is a thief, (someone) that people have said is a thief, go and try him. If he is an armed robber, go and try him. If he is somebody without a certificate, charge him.”
“Whether it is Moghalu, if he is able to guarantee that restructuring, let him come and negotiate with us and sign.”
