Afenifere Calls For A Government of National Unity


Thursday April 28, 2022

The Pan Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere has again made a call for a government of national unity.

This call was made at its meeting held at the country home of the Acting Leader, Chief Ayo Adebanjo, in Isanya Ogbo, Ogun State.

The meeting which was attended by some leaders and members of Afenifere from all the states in Yorubaland
among who were former Deputy Governor of Lagos State, Senator Kofo Bucknor-Akerele, Chief Supo Sonibare as well as Chairmen and Members from the State deliberated extensively on various issues pertaining to the Nigeria nation especially in the way they affect the Yorubas.

In a communique issued by its spokesperson, Jare Ajayi said the meeting reviewed various challenges that Nigeria is facing particularly the chocking insecurity that is threatening the country very seriously.

“After extensive deliberations, Afenifere resolved as follow:

1.The situation in the country is in a more decisive manner.

In view of the seriousness of the situation and considering the fact that the present administration under President Muhammadu Buhari has shown that it is incapable and unwilling to tackle the identified problems, Afenifere hereby strongly advocate for a Government of National Unity.

  1. Such a Government of National Unity is to tackle the insecurity problems and midwife a new Democratic Government.
  2. Once again, Afenifere is reiterating its position that Restructuring of the Nigerian State must take place before the much vaunted Elections.
  3. We also recommend that States that are ready must be allowed to establish their own Police Forces. The performance of Amotekun Security Network in the South West in conjunction with the Nigerian Police has shown clearly that all the criticisms against State Police are unfounded and self serving.
