2019: We’re Seriously Contemplating Separating From Nigeria – Yoruba Groups


The Yoruba Self-Determination Advancement Forum YOSEDAF has said on said on Tuesday that restructuring would be the only condition for giving its support to any presidential candidate in the 2019 general elections.

While it disapproved of President Muhammadu Buhari’s government, saying things had worsened since his assumption office three years ago, the coalition of over 60 Yoruba self-determination platforms said it was open to negotiation 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.

In a statement jointly signed by its Convener, Evangelist ‘Kunle Adesokan, and Secretary, Kola Are, YOSEDAF said it had been deceived in the past, said this time any such candidate who approached it must sign an agreement with the Yoruba to restructure the country before he could get the support of the South-West.

The coalition who addressed the press in Lagos on Tuesday, accused the All Progressives Congress of reneging on its promise to restructure the country, noting that “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.”
