Afenifere, pan-Yoruba socio-political organisation, says the Federal Government is “doing all kinds of things that can divide the country.”

Yinka Odumakin, Afenifere spokesman, said this while responding to a comment Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo made on the unity of the country.

Osinbajo had asked those seeking the dissolution of Nigeria to look at the case of Sudan which broke up yet the problems still linger.

In a statement on Wednesday, Yinka Odumakin, Afenifere spokesman, said the actions taken by the Federal Government “make the break-up inevitable.”

Odumakin also wondered why the government declared the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) a terrorist group.

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

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

“What kind of sermon are they preaching? If they are declaring Shiites group as terrorists, what act of terrorism have they done, whereas those who are perpetrating terror in Nigeria you are giving them money.

“The Afenifere has never set out to ask for the break-up of Nigeria, as a matter of fact, we don’t like it. It is those who are pursuing the policy of not making Nigerians good neighbors to themselves, those who regard some Nigerians as masters and some as slaves, those who discriminate and pursuing policy of discrimination, those who don’t provide employment for the millions of able-bodied Nigerians, even though, there are opportunities to do so, that could break up the country

“Some Nigerians have the opportunity to utilise the resources to develop Nigeria, but fail to do so. It is these people, directly or indirectly, who are breaking this country up.” (New Telegraph)
