Buhari govt working towards Nigeria’s break up – Afenifere replies Osinbajo

The Yoruba socio-cultural organization, Afenifere, has accused the federal government led by President Muhammadu Buhari of “doing all kinds of things that can divide the country.”

Afenifere said this in response to the call of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to those seeking the dissolution of Nigeria to see the case of Sudan, which was dissolved but the problems persist.

In a statement signed and issued yesterday by his spokesman, Yinka Odumakin, Afenifere said that federal government action could “make the breakup inevitable.”

According to Odumakin: “The president said yesterday that Abiola would have solved ethnic and religious problems in Nigeria, why they are not solving it. Why are they doing all kinds of things that can divide the country?

“So, if a break is not the solution, but all the actions they are taking make the break inevitable. The Fulani people are doing so many things in the country that they are not doing anything against them. You are doing many things that can break the country and yet you are saying that the rupture is not the solution.

“What kind of sermon are they preaching? If they are declaring the Shites group as terrorists, what act of terrorism have they committed, while those who are perpetrating terror in Nigeria are giving them money?

“Afenifere has never set out to ask for the rupture of Nigeria; in fact, we don’t like it. It is those who pursue the policy of not making Nigerians good neighbors to themselves, who consider some Nigerians as masters and others as slaves, who discriminate and continue a policy of discrimination, who do not provide employment for millions of capable Nigerian people with body , although there are opportunities to do so, which could divide the country

“Some Nigerians who have the opportunity to use the resource to develop Nigeria and do not. These people, directly or indirectly, are the ones who are breaking this country.”
