President Jonathan’s Visit To Ile Ife Osun State: Afenifere Blasts Corrupt Yoruba Leaders

Nov 30, 2014 – 2015 Election: Afenifere Blasts Corrupt Yoruba Leaders For Meeting Jonathan In Ile Ife Osun State

President Jonathan’s Visit To Ile Ife Osun State: Afenifere Blasts Corrupt Yoruba Leaders

Afenifere Renewal Group today blasts Jonathan for his visit to some Yoruba leaders in Ile Ife Osun state few days ago.

The group claims Jonathan is seeking reelection support from the Yoruba nation too late.

In a statement signed by the group PS, Kunle Famoriyo, the ‘Yoruba Progress Summit’ which held last Friday was described as an afterthought and a futile effort to sneak Goodluck Jonathan into the Yoruba land through the backdoor.

“For the past five years under his administration, Yoruba people have been deliberately marginalised and skewed out of national reckoning, especially in terms of key appointments and opportunity to partake in key sectors of the economy,”.

“We are surprised that President Jonathan believes the position of the Speaker, over which he has no control, is enough to atone for the deliberate marginalisation in key appointments, over which he has control.

“In any case, we do not need a ‘Progress Summit’ in Yoruba land. We already have a progressive culture based on democratic and egalitarian values.

“What Yoruba nation needs is how to be delivered from the retrogressive forces imposed on us by the Nigerian state.

“The Yoruba nation was well ahead in terms of development until the forced union called Nigeria began to steal our institutions from us.

“Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), being one of the stolen institutions, is good only to address the need to restructure Nigeria, not for an effort to sustain the status quo,” the group added.

“We reckon this is the best form of public governance that gives us the opportunity to develop at our own pace and contribute our quota to Nigeria’s development.”

“Those Yoruba persons parading themselves as leaders f Yoruba people know that leadership in Yoruba land resides in treasured virtues of Omoluabi and Afenifere philosophy, not necessarily in persons. Yoruba people know their leaders.

“We dare say that more than any so called leader at that event, those students, who brave all the odds to tell Mr. President the truth, are the true leaders, irrespective of their ethnic origin.

“ARG therefore salute the courage of those students who spoke truth in face of oppression and we enjoin every Nigerian to replicate their courageous act,” ARG said.

    Yorubas are the foremost advocate of one and indivisible Nigeria from the very inception of the territory called Nigeria today. What Yorubas abhore is the lopsided developmental agenda brought about by the deliberate policy of fededal charracter that tend to slow down certain corridors of Nigeria for others to do a catch-up. Yorubas have always advocated for true federalism where all States of Nigeria will develop at their own pace, identifying their individual area of priority and setting their agenda based on the needs of their people and not the current practices where the federal government imposes its development programme based on its equal drvelopment agenda, which in most cases run in conflict with set goals of certain states or a duplication of what already exist.
