- “Those who are agitating for Yoruba and Biafra nation are foolish. Any Nigerian must seek Unity, harmony and peace for our country.
Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola on Saturday said those leading and supporting agitation for the Yoruba Nation are foolish saying “they should consider the consequences of war.”
Aregbesola while speaking at Zenabab Hotel, Ilesha, Osun State during his 64th birthday celebration warned that agitators must consider the women, children, old people and those living with disabilities who are mostly affected.
He said that Nigeria must be more united else African countries will be enslaved once again.
He said that Nigeria is the country that will liberate Africa from all oppressions therefore Nigerians must not give nod to secessionists.
According to him, “Those who are agitating for Yoruba and Biafra nation are foolish. Any Nigerian must seek Unity, harmony and peace for our country. If we refuse to entrench unity, peace and strength for Nigeria, Africans may be enslaved for another time. This is the country that God has created to liberate the Africa nations, anyone who wants that should not trouble this country.
“Any right-thinking person should know that any problem against Nigeria will result in calamity and retrogression. Anyone who loves women, children, pregnant women, aged, people living with disabilities should stop the agitation. It will take Nigeria 50 years to recover from civil war. Anyone who still wants civil war for Nigeria should kill himself or leave the country. We must seek to support Nigeria, everything may not seems right and fine but we must find a solution to our challenges.”
Aregbesola statement may have been instigated by many Nigerians in the Southwest agitating for a Yoruba nation.
It could be recalled that Professor Banji Akintoye and Sunday Igboho have been clamouring for Yoruba nation as the solution to Nigeria’s problems.
Speaking on political activities of the state, Aregbesola declared support for a political group within the All Progressives Congress, Osun State, The Osun Progressives (TOP), saying, “I am in support of the consolidation of progressive legacies in this state, as long as we are in power and we shall be in power for a very long time in this state.TOP want to strengthen the political structure of our party. They also want to promote internal democracy within the party.”
