The Yoruba people have been called on to prepare for their own sovereign nation.
The call was made by the O’ Odua Nationalist Coalition (ONAC) in the wake of a recent call by Arewa youths which called on Igbos residing in the North to leave the region before October 1, 2017.
The group said it is also reacting to the “pain and misery on the Yoruba people due to the distort in the development plan of the late Chief Obafemi Awolowo for the South West”
ONAC consists 18 groups including 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) among others.
According to Micheal Popoola, Oluwole Suileman and Mrs Aduke Fadshunsi, they called on Yorubas staying in Hausa territories to be guided by a strong sense of history and the fact that they will not be spared by those who claim to be their hosts.
“We advise them to begin to make alternative plans for the inevitable upheaval being promoted by the Fulani oligarchy.
‘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.
