The Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, Gani Adams, says Nigeria has only two options: restructure, or divide “naturally”.
According to Adams, he is being careful to be at the centre of self-determination “because of the various institutions that surround Yorubaland”.
“It is either we restructure Nigeria to regionalism or you allow Nigeria to split naturally without even shooting gun the way Nigeria is going,” Adams explained in a live interview with Punch on Wednesday. “The presidency has the opportunity, and people in corridor of power for them to allow Nigeria to survive.”
He continues: “The only condition is by allowing the federating unit to go back into region, and the central will still be even controlling about thirty percent of the economic activities, economic interest, political power, security sector of the country in the federal level.”
