A chieftain of the pan Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere, Chief Ayo Adebanjo has raised the alarm that president Muhammadu Buhari is more interested in dominating that ‘Yoruba race’ than ruling the country.
Speaking at a book presentation and platinum recognition marking the 70th anniversary of Nigerian Tribune Newspapers, held at International Conference Centre, University of Ibadan, he called on the Alaafin of Oyo to take the lead in liberating Yorubaland.
“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.
