UN Should Supervise Referendum To Break Up Nigeria – Yoruba Separatist Group – SaharaReporters.com

YOREM also reiterated that Yoruba people are not interested in the next general elections in 2023 but in self-determination to bring about a sovereign Yoruba nation.
A group, the Yoruba Revolutionary Movement (YOREM) has said that the Yoruba people of Nigeria want the disintegration of this country as she celebrates her 61st Independence Anniversary today.
 
The group stated that a section of the Fulani political class has inhumanely treated other ethnic nationalities as slaves, hence, which informs its call for the dissolution of the most populous African nation.

 
YOREM further disclosed that Nigeria in her “61 years of independence is a catalogue of woes for the Nigerian people, this was compounded by Buhari nepotism whose kith and kins the Fulani, maimed, raped, kidnapped for ransom, killed and forcefully occupied others ancestral land with impunity.”
 
This was disclosed in a statement issued by the YOREM National Co-ordinator, Wale Balogun, and obtained by SaharaReporters on Friday.
 
YOREM titled the statement, ‘All Yoruba Wants is the Peaceful Dissolution of Nigeria @ 61’, adding that the South-West residents of Nigeria have no choice but to break away having tried to display justice, fairness, equity and unity but treated with disdain.
 
It also recounted the irregularities of President Muhammadu Buhari’s government, saying it haunts the opposition and allegedly aids terrorism and banditry because Fulani people are mostly involved.
 
The statement partly read, “The primary responsibilities of government which is to provide for the welfare, security of lives and property of the people failed woefully under the Buhari-led APC government of nepotism and tyranny because Nigeria designed to hold down the progress and development of the different ethnic nationalities in the forceful marriage of inconvenience is a failed state that should be peacefully dissolved now to avoid a senseless ongoing pogrom before it blossoms into a protracted civil war.
 
“In the last 107 years of this forceful merger, we the Yoruba have done everything humanly possible to make the lopsided Federal Union work with justice, fairness, equity and unity as the watchword. But to our chagrin, the most backward section of the Nigeria ruling class – the Fulani aristocracy which the British gave the baton of leadership see other ethnic nationalities as their vassal states.
 
“The 61 years of independence is a catalogue of woes for the Nigerian people, this was compounded by Buhari nepotism whose kith and kins the Fulani, maimed, raped, kidnapped for ransom, killed and forcefully occupied others ancestral land with impunity. The complicity of the Buhari presidency informed the renewed vigour for Yoruba quest for a liberated Oodua nation.
 
“While the Fulani Government of Nigeria which is what the Buhari dictatorship had reduced governance to, opposition politicians are blackmailed, harassed by the EFCC (Economic and Financial Crimes Commission) and arm twisted to join the ruling APC.
 
“Irrepressible opposition leader like Omoyele Sowore’s movement is restricted to Abuja, Nnamdi Kanu leader of separatist IPOB was abducted Gestapo like in Kenya and clamped into detention, Sunday Igboho a Yoruba self-determination activist who escaped state assassination by the whisker is detained at Benin Republic, the unrelenting Buhari dictatorship is still wasting millions of dollars in bribery for Igboho to be extradited to Nigeria. At a time killer Fulani herdsmen were rehabilitated and paid fat salaries with some Boko Haram/bandits reintegrated into the Nigeria army.”
 
The group stated that it wants a national referendum that will dissolve the Nigerian state which the world governing body, United Nations, should oversee.
 
YOREM also reiterated that Yoruba people are not interested in the next general elections in 2023 but in self-determination to bring about a sovereign Yoruba nation.
 
“We of the Yoruba Revolutionary Movement (YOREM) which to state for the umpteenth time that, our agitation as a people is very clear, we want a ‘UN Supervised National Referendum For The Peaceful Dissolution Of The Nigerian State’ to avoid unprecedented genocide in the failed British contraption.
