Yoruba group has said it is time for Yorubas to create their own Oduduwa Republic.group stated that this is not the first time they have called for Oodua Republic,
“But today, this demand has become even more crucial than any other thing.
The coalition includes the Oodua Peoples Congress, (OPC),Oodua Liberation Movement, (OLM), Oodua Republic Coalition, (ORC), Yoruba Revolutionary Congress, (YORC), Oodua Muslim-Christian Dialogue Group , (OMDG), Yoruba Students Nationalist Front, (YOSNF), Oodua Hunters Union,(OHUN) and 11 other groups.
The group says:“We advise them to begin to make alternative plans for the inevitable upheaval being promoted by the Fulani oligarchy.
The North has always been the aggressor because of the region’s loss of power and the unhidden desire to make Nigeria the irreversible extension of the Fulani emirate.
What we see is violent conflict of civilisations which can only be resolved when each region go her own way. In the bid to keep Nigeria as one country, millions of people have been killed and the lives of children wasted.
Make the historic declaration that Yoruba people are ready for our own Oduduwa Republic.We have watched events these past days. The cloud is getting thicker. The poisonous rain appear ready to fall. It is time for the Yoruba people to be ready to defend our homeland from being seized by local imperial elements and their collaborators. We assert Yoruba self-determination and sovereignty. We shall work for it. We will actualize it.
