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 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 it. 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 Shites 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 who have the opportunity to utilise the resource to develop Nigeria and fail to do so. It is these people directly or indirectly, who are breaking this country up.”

    Very soon, in less than 4 years to be exact, Buhari will be replaced by someone from another region of the country. The problem of Nigeria will then change gear to something else. When this happens, the merchants of doom will adjust their music and start to chase new shadows. The earlier Nigerians realize that their problems go beyond those entrusted with leadership to include their own attitude to development the better. In other climes, citizens show equal love for their country and preach message of unity which their leaders are elected to help nourish. Let us come together and learn to develop our country in spite of our differences.
