Yoruba's are tired of One Nigeria, We'll go for self-determination, If... - OPC Leader, Gani Adams


OPC Leader, Dr. Gani Adams
National Coordinator of the Oodua Peoples Congress(OPC), Otunba Gani Adams has revealed that the Yoruba's are getting tired of Nigeria, adding that if the country is not restructured they have no other option than to agitate for self-determination.

"Yoruba's 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, Gani Adams told Dailysun.

"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 benefitting from the system.

"You see, 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.

"Definitely, we are just wasting our time if we do not restructure. The voice of the people is the voice of God. As a people, we do not have any alternative than to restructure the country. The structure we are operating now does not give room for development, Adams added.

The OPC leader further revealed that the Biafra agitation is the right thing to do, adding that he is in total support of Igbo nation, according to him; the youth who want to have a better society have the rights to clamour for self-determination.

"In as much as we are talking to our youths, I would be the last person that would ask the Igbo people to stop the agitation for the Republic of Biafra. It is their right for self-determination. Look at the population of the Igbo people now and they are the most vibrant and widely travelled Nigerians.

"When people are saying that they would crush the Igbo people the way they crushed them in 1967, I always laugh at them. The people you have now are not the Igbo of 1967 to 1970. We have a new Igbo society that is more organized and sophisticated.

"I was one of those that supported the release of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra(IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu. The crackdown on IPOB would not help matters because if they are determined for liberation, you cannot stop them no matter the force you use against them. So, I believe that the only way to resolves all these agitations is to go back to the Republican Constitution of 1963.
