Nigeria is no longer a Country to desire, we want Restructuring or Oduduwa Republic- Gani Adams

by on June 3, 2017

National Coordinator of the Oodua Peoples Congress, OPC, Otunba Gani Adams, has given reasons why the Yorubas are now desperate to leave Nigeria.

Adams noted that Nigeria is no longer a country where anyone would want to call his.

He noted that restructuring is no longer in the minds of Yoruba youths as they now support self determination on the basis of having their own nation.

“If you sample the opinion of the youths and others in Yoruba land, they are even tired of restructuring.

“They are more in support of self-determination. They want self-determination on the basis of having their own nation.

“It is something that is very clear to everybody. The situation is worrisome because in Nigeria, some people say let us try and solve the problem but others say the problem must continue because they are benefiting from the system.

“In our experience at the National Conference, the various interests did not want to follow the same path.

“People from a particular region believe that we should continue to be patching up Nigeria unlike others who wanted a permanent solution to our problems.

“When you tell them that this is what happened in other countries including the United States and Britain, they would tell you that we should continue with the present structure.

“So, with the way things are going, the youth who want to have a better society have the rights to clamour for self-determination.

“I agree with Pa Adebanjo that Yoruba youths are clamouring for self-determination.

“Even some of us that are leaders of the youths, we have to calm them that if you are asking for a nation, we do not think that it would come in the spirit of peace and that we do not want war.

“What we are saying is that later we can become a nation but now, let us go with restructuring.”

    It is very clear that Nigeria is dead and will never be revived. I know that Buhari and his Hausa/Fulani brothers will never agree in the restructuring which the Yorubas and some other gentleman tribes are pushing for. Soon Nigeria will explode to give birth to at least five nations. Farewell Nigeria!

    The ijebus should be ready for ijebu federation.ijebus will never be part of oduduwa republic.
    The teritories of ijebus stolen from us after the only defeat the ijebus suffered in any war, the imagbon war of 1892.the defeat led to the partitioning of ijebu land with ikorodu, somolu bariga, ajah, epe, palmgrove etc becoming part of lagos.all these will be merged together to form ijebu federation.
    Befor then, ijebus home and away, should everything within it capacity to ensure that governorship position come back to ijebu land.
    I se no reason why the tge most populous ethnic group cannot produce a governor after 30 years.its a big shame.
    Nothing like zoning, we should do everything to get the first slot at all cost.
    Ijebu port need to be developed, before their can be meaning full development in ijebu land
    This is not the time for any ijebu son and daughter to be in support of ogun west or the yewas.
    Pls, for God sake, 2019 belong to the ijebus and not the yewas.

    Your royal majesty, The Awujale of Ijebu land, sir, kindly use your discretion to pls, call ijebu people together to set up a commercial radio in ijebu ode where our language and news going on in ijebu ode and it environs can be heard.this will go along way to boost our culture and tradition.
    Sir, ijebus tradition is incomplete without the imagbon war.The imagbon war need to be celebrated annualy as a festival, in essence, ojude oba festival, to the student of history, is incomplete without the cekebration of the imagbon war.those falling heros fought for their father land, inorder to protect the pride of ijebu land, but till now, no body remembered them.Even the british remembered the imagbon war by giving medals to those that fought in the war.
    Tha British new that the ijebus wre far superior to the yorubas and the likes, that reason culminated in fighting the war.
    Sir, in my opinion, a statue should be errected at imagbon, where the battle actually took place.
    This will also, add colours to the ojude oba festival , and improve tourism in ijebu land.
