Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Sunday Igboho has claimed that South West governors and Monarchs are in support of efforts to get an independent Yoruba nation.
Speaking in Osogbo, the Osun State capital on Saturday May 15, during a Yoruba Nation rally where participants called for a break away from the country, Igboho claimed that some Southwest governors are interested in breaking away but are scared that their monthly allocation could be denied if they declare open support for an independent Yoruba nation.
The activist also alleged that Governor Oyetola was informed that he will be in Osun, and he allowed them to come.
“I can’t be cowed or intimidated. They said I would be arrested. Who would dare do that? We are no longer part of Nigeria. We won’t have anything to do with them again.
“There is no election again in Yorubaland until we have a Yoruba nation. Those in authority initially thought we were joking when we demanded an independent Yoruba nation.
“All our governors are with us. From Oyo, Ogun and Ondo to Ekiti, Lagos and Osun, they are supporting us, but they can’t do it openly. Allocation they give them in Abuja may stop if they do it openly. So, don’t abuse them again. Governor Oyetola was informed I will be in Osun and he allowed us to come here. All our monarchs are with us.”
