‘Secession cannot solve Yoruba problem’

National President of Yoruba Patriot Movement (YPM), Chief Oladipupo Oladosu, on Thursday advised Oduduwa Republic agitators to push for constitutional review rather than engaging in activities capable of destroying national peace.

He urged Yoruba and Igbo nationalities to learn to accommodate other tribes in the country, querying the future of minorities in the country.

The Yoruba leader who spoke at a press conference in Ibadan, yesterday, however said those agitating for secession cannot be blamed, because government has failed them.

He said: “There is strength in our diversity and population. We need Hausa/Fulani, we need Igbo and we need other groups to survive. We cannot blame those agitating for secession because government has failed them,” he said.

The constitutional lawyer said there must be a constitution that will give succour to all Nigerians.
