A first class monarch in the State of Osun, Oluwo of Iwoland, Oba Abdul-Rasheed Adewale Akanbi, has clearly expressed that the Yoruba race is not ripe enough for independence.
He condemned in strong term, the call for the creation of Yoruba Nation.
Oluwo, while speaking at the official launching of Osun Youth Policy Document, made it known.
“We know their agenda and as traditional rulers, we will allow it to happen because if it happens, we’ll all suffer for it and it will cause a great setback for the south west region.”
“We know how many dollars the agitators are collecting from abroad all in the name of fighting for the creation of Yoruba nation, unfortunately, we have some traditional rulers supporting them. I felt bad for them”, his statement reads.
He encouraged Osun youths to remain focused and that they should not follow the way of Yoruba nation agitators. “Yes, you have shown your grievances and the government at all levels are beginning to do what is right, we should however support our leaders to do the right thing”, the monarch added.
