Ondo state governor Rotimi Akeredolu has disowned Yoruba nation agitators.
Akeredolu in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Richard Olatunde in Akure declared that the agitators are on their own.
Recall that the Yoruba rights activist, Chief Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho who held a rally in Akure, the Ondo state capital weekend claimed that they have the support of the state governor for the rally.
But reacting, Akeredolu said that he would never support the ” secessionist agenda and or balkanization of the nation.
The statement reads “lt has come to the knowledge of the Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, that some group of persons who held a rally under the cover of what they term ‘secessionist agitations’ in Akure, on Saturday, May 22, 2021, erroneously claimed to have had his support for the rally.
Therefore, the vigour, zeal, leadership and candour displayed by Governor Akeredolu for a just and fair Nigeria is altruistic, and borne out of patriotism for the Nation as well as love for his people, the Yoruba ethnic nationality.
It is important, therefore, to state without any equivocation that the Yoruba Nation secessionist promoters do not enjoy any lending hand in Governor Akeredolu.
