President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration, according to Yoruba One Voice (YOV), is supporting the “Fulani agenda.”
The organization accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) government of spreading misery, insecurity, and continued asset-stripping of the economies of Southern states in favour of the North.
The Secretary General, Sina Okanlomo issued a statement on Friday in commemoration of the one year anniversary of YOV’s 2020 global rally for actualisation of Yoruba Nation.
Okanlomo dismissed the October 1 Independence Day broadcast by the President wherein he announced that some financiers of secessionists Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Igboho had been identified.
YOV said the major highlights of the Buhari administration were “the inhumane kidnapping, torture and illegal return” of Kanu as well as the “brutal invasion” of Igboho’s home in Ibadan.
The scribe noted that “several lives and property were lost in the attack, culminating in the exit of the Yoruba Nation activist to Benin Republic where he remains incarcerated”.
YOV insists between October last year and now, nothing positive has come out of the current administration.
“National wealth is still being diverted in obscene ways to cater for the needs of the Fulani in foreign countries, where petroleum refineries, railroads and other developmental infrastructure built with Nigerian money.
“All these were done without recourse to national security, other than the evil plan to relocate national wealth for selfish use
“The Fulani-led administration has become emboldened in its utter and disgraceful disregard for human rights and international law.
“As major sponsors of illegal kidnappings, banditry and Boko Haram, they continue to employ state resources in the maiming, kidnapping and killing of opposition elements.”
Okanlomo told the Yorubas that there are more steeper hills to climb in the journey towards the promised land.
“We must move forward unapologetically, with the belief and conviction that victory is near. We must realise that the fight in which we find ourselves is a fight for the souls of generations unborn.
“We are the ones who will decide whether the future generation is born into slavery or born into freedom and prosperity. Let us, through our voices, say no to injustice. Let us continue to demand nothing less than a Yoruba Nation”, the statement concluded.
