Akeredolu: Politicians who lost power are promoters of Oduduwa Republic
The Executive Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu has stated that politicians who lost power are promoters of Oduduwa Republic.
This statement was made by the Ondo state government in reactions to calls for secession of South West states from Nigeria.
Akeredolu urged people spearheading the calls to allow stakeholders to discuss before imposing their thoughts on the Yoruba people.
He stated a gathering for secession will not be tolerated in the state.
He stressed that right of citizens to discuss, agitate and fight to right perceived wrongs must be done within known and acceptable parameters.
“We will not be led to assured annihilation by anyone or a group of people, still smarting from the electoral defeats of recent times and presumed exclusion from the process of decision-making.
“Our people are knowledgeable enough to determine their interest at any point. If and when they consider self-determination as an option, they will not depend on external promptings to act. That is why we are different. That is why we are who we are.”
