Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, who has been very outspoken following the Yoruba agitation led by Sunday Igholo, has further revealed why he opposes secession.
According to the governor, his wife is from the South East, hence, the reason why he can never be in support of Nigeria’s secession.
Akeredolu said this when the Senate Committee on the Review of 1999 Constitution paid the governor a courtesy visit in Akure, Ondo State capital one Tuesday night, May 25.
The committee was led by the Deputy Senate majority leader and Senator representing Ondo North Senatorial District, Prof. Ajayi Borrofice on the review of the 1999 constitution (As Amended). The event is billed to hold at the International Centre for Culture and Event (DOME), on Wednesday at Akure, the Ondo State capital.
Akeredolu in his welcome address to the lawmakers said people are losing confidence in the entity called Nigeria because a number of issues have been allowed to longer for too long. He, therefore,urged the Senators to listen to public complaints as the public hearing begins.
“My circumstances cannot make me believe in secession. My wife is from the South East. My sons married from other regions outside South-West.
But strong points have been made. Everybody wants to see fairness federalism. Those are the areas. Is this how to run a federal government? Is it an inclusive one? People are worried.
This constitution review, your efforts, I pray it should be accepted. Our people believe that there must be dialogue. People are acting we want national dialogue. How we convoke it, I don’t know. I believe those are issues we must look at”.
The governor who said the People are already frustrated declared that the incessant crises between the farmers and herders cannot be overlooked in the course of the public hearing.
It is not easy to wish herders/farmers caksh away. Our people are on the edge. What are we saying abiut police? Are we stressing multi-level policing? Are we talking about state police? I believe opportunities are there for us in this country”.
