Afenifere: How FG Are Instigating Nigeria Breakup
Just yesterday, the president of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari said that Abiola would have solved ethnic and religious problems in Nigeria. But come to think about it, what is the current government doing to solve same problem created by this government.
Well, what the Afenifere Yoruba group replied the president is what they ought to know.
The pan-Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere, has asked the Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to make policies that will not instigate the country’s break-up following a statement by the Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, that break-up was not the solution to Nigeria’s problem.

Osinbajo had said on Tuesday that a country in Africa had broken-up and yet their problems had not been resolved. He had added that there was a need for some institutions in Nigeria to ensure of the safety of the citizens wherever they were in the country.
But Afenifere alleged that the federal government had not done anything to avert the break-up of the country.
The Publicity Secretary of the organisation, Mr. Yinka Odumakin, alleged that the federal government was being partial in the treatment of various elements in the country, saying this might lead to the break-up of the country.
“What are they doing to prevent the break-up? 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?
“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 Shiites group as terrorists, what act of terrorism have they done, whereas those who are perpetrating terror in Nigeria you are giving them money?
Odumakin, who urged the federal government to come up with policies that could unite the country, argued that the president should rule the country with his principle of ‘I belong to everyone and I belong to nobody.’
