Chief Bisi Akande, a former governor of Osun and pioneer Interim Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), has appealed to those agitating for Nigeria’s break-up to bury such thought.

Akande made the appeal on Monday in Ibadan during the inauguration of a project owned by Chief Adebayo Adelabu, a former CBN deputy governor and APC governorship candidate in the 2019 elections.

Akande, alongside other prominent Nigerians, were in Ibadan for the 50th birthday anniversary of Adelabu.

He said that allowing Yoruba to break away from Nigeria might lead to bloodshed and avoidable civil war that would further decimate the people.

Akande called on those agitating for the Yoruba nation to bury the idea, saying the nation couldn’t afford to witness another war.

“Those agitating for the Yoruba nation should have a rethink. This country must remain united to save it from war.

“Yoruba will be in a war for another 100 years if Nigeria is allowed to break,” he said.

He said that Nigeria was a product of war, adding that the country came into existence after Yoruba people had gone into 100 years of wars.

According to the former governor, most African countries and the western world envy Nigeria because the country is the heartbeat of Africa.

Akande said that francophone countries across the world have been praying for Nigeria to break because they weren’t comfortable with the country’s strength.

“Those tormenting Nigeria are doing so because they are products of failed states. It is a difficult task to stop crimes, particularly in a corrupt society.

“Now that some Nigerians are talking about breaking because of difficulties, they didn’t know that a man who can not endure will collapse and die. Only an enduring country can stay,” he said.
