Yoruba nation agitators are foolish, says Aregbesola


Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola on Saturday said those leading and supporting agitation for the Yoruba and Biafra nation are foolish for not considering the consequences of war.

Aregbesola while speaking at Zenabab Hotel, Ilesha, Osun State during his 64th birthday celebration warned that agitators must consider the women, children, old people and those living with disabilities who are most affected during the war.

His words: “Those who are agitating for Yoruba and Biafra nation are foolish. Any Nigerian must seek Unity, harmony and peace for our country. If we refuse to entrench unity, peace and strength for Nigeria, Africans may be enslaved for another time. This is the country that God has created to liberate the Africa nations, anyone who wants that should not trouble this country.

“Any right-thinking person should know that any problem against Nigeria will result in calamity and retrogression. Anyone who loves women, children, pregnant women, aged, people living with disabilities should stop the agitation. It will take Nigeria 50 years to recover from civil war. Anyone who still wants civil war for Nigeria should kill himself or leave the country. We must seek to support Nigeria, everything may not seems right and fine but we must find a solution to our challenges.”

Speaking on political activities of the state, Aregbesola declared support for a political group within the All Progressives Congress, Osun State, The Osun Progressives (TOP), saying, “I am in support of the consolidation of progressive legacies in this state, as long as we are in power and we shall be in power for a very long time in this state.TOP want to strengthen the political structure of our party. They also want to promote internal democracy within the party.”

Governor Adegboyega Oyetola who was represented by the Commissioner for Political Affairs and Inter-governmental Relations, Hon. Taiwo Akeju said: “You performed very well in Osun State and you are performing well as the minister of Interior. We are very proud of you.”

In his address, the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, said that Aregbesola’s legacy in the development of the State will forever linger in the sands of time.

The Ooni of Ife who spoke via Zoom noted that Osun State and its people cannot forget Aregbesola as his achievements are beyond what anyone can rubbish.

The Registrar of the Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof Ishaq Oloyede, who delivered a lecture on “Power is responsibility” at the event, urged Nigerian political leaders to be responsible with power.
