Don’t Betray Yoruba Interest, Group Warns DelegatesLatest News, News Thursday, April 10th, 2014
Yoruba group, the coalition of Oodua Self Determination Groups (COSEG) has warned all delegates from the South West geo-political zone to see the pursuit of the interest of the Yoruba people as sacrosanct and pursue it vigorously, warning that dire consequence awaits anyone that betrays it.
The group stated that several conferences of the Yoruba people were organized and well publicised before arriving at what is now known as ‘Yoruba Agenda,” stressing that delegates must strive to see to its actualization at the ongoing national conference.
In a statement issues in Abuja and signed by the Chairman of its Coordinating Council, Comrade Ifedayo Ogunlana, the group stated that all eyes are on the delegates to the conference and that the realization of the Yoruba agenda must be pursued by all means necessary by delegates working in concert with other progressives.
According to the group, “’we are watching with keen interest the debate at the ongoing national conference and we want to sound a note of warning to all delegates of Yoruba extraction that they must pursue the Yoruba agenda that was adopted in Ibadan vigorously and ensure that they collectively defend it. No individual or group interest must override the collective interest of the Yoruba people. Also, dire consequence awaits anyone that betrays the people of Yoruba land.”
The group urged the delegates to work and collaborate with other progressives at the confab that shared Yoruba’s collective aspiration in order to achieve the desired goal, maintaining that the restructuring of the present Nigeria, right to self determination and resource control should be articulated by all delegates.
