A chieftain of the pan socio-political group, Afenifere, Chief Ayo Adebanjo has raised an alarm that “Yorubaland is in danger”.

Adebanjo spoke in Ibadan at a book and platinum recognition marking the 70th anniversary of Nigerian Tribune Newspapers, held at International Conference Centre, of Ibadan,

According to Adebanjo, Muhammadu “is not ruling the country, he wants to dominate us”, hence the need for the
Alaafin of Oyo to take the lead in liberating Yorubaland.

Adebanjo maintained that, “The new task for you now is not just to tell us what Awolowo said, it is not just to tell us what Awolowo had done, you are in the forefront now to carry it out. Yorubaland is in danger.

“Please, gather your Obas and be the champion for leading this country. We have been submerged. And only a few of our governors are responsible to us.

“They have shut down. They cannot face the head of state because of their own shortcomings.

“Kabiyesi, I am openly appealing to you to lead the crusade for the liberation of Yorubaland. Now, we are already subjugated. We are already surrounded by enemies who are appearing to be friends and our representatives in government collaborate for our subjugation. Don’t let us mince any word at all. Now, we have to get ourselves out of bandage.

“Buhari is not ruling the country. He wants to dominate us. I don’t mince words about it. There is tyranny in the country. There is anarchy. When the Head of State said there is no respect for the rule of law, where are the lawyers?

“The moment there is no respect for the rule of law, there is no government again, there is anarchy”.

Adebanjo pointed out that “there were the lawyers and judges sitting down at the conference, where he said that and there was no reaction. Judges are being hounded all over the country. Court orders are not being obeyed with impunity.

“Kabiyesi, it is no longer the question of telling us what is to be done, it is a question of leading the crusade that we are no longer going to subject ourselves to this bondage. Positive action now.

“Let our Kabiyesi, the Alaafin of Oyo, call the other Obas and we citizens, the politicians you think are representing you are not representing us. They are protecting themselves.”

Amotekun: Akeredolu reveals ‘major’ agreements Southwest governors reached with Osinbajo

Amotekun: Akeredolu reveals ‘major’ agreements Southwest governors reached with Osinbajo 20200124 093655

The Ondo State and Chairman of the Southwest Governors, Rotimi Akeredolu, has disclosed what was agreed upon during the meeting with the Vice , Yemi Osinbajo with regards to Amotekun.

Akeredolu said governors of the region and Osinbajo agreed on a legal framework to be established to backup the region’s security outfit.

Recall that the Southwest governors had met with Osinbajo yesterday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The meeting is coming 24 hours after the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, said Amotekun was not a threat to national unity.

Amotekun, an initiative of Southwest Governors, was first declared illegal last Tuesday by the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami

However, Akeredolu while addressing State House correspondents after the meeting, said: “We held a very fruitful discussion, the governors of the South-West were there. The meeting was presided over by the Vice President, the AGF was there and the Inspector General of Police.

“We have rubbed minds and all of us have agreed on the way forward. The most important thing is that we are going to have the legal framework to back this Amotekun. And this legal framework is going to be one in which all of us will look at and we will be sure that it goes without any hindrance.”

When asked if the agreement reached with the Vice President meant that the establishment of the outfit would be put on hold until the legal framework was developed, he said: “No. What I believe about our resolution is that Amotekan is there, you know the Federal Government is starting community policing. In essence really, it is about community. So, we are going to work together to see the community policing and Amotekan work in a way.”

Akeredolu also insisted that there were consultations before the establishment of Amotekun

“There were consultations, don’t say there were no consultations. There were consultations because we held discussions with the IG then and what has developed is what has led to this, not that there were no consultations.

“We just felt that with all these noise outside, it was better for us to sit down. Remember that immediately the noise started, I said that we were going to explore political solutions and all of us are here, my colleague, the deputy governor of Oyo State who is of the PDP, all of us are here. So, we have looked at both political and legal solutions to it and all of us will do it,” he said.
