The Pan-Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere does not believe in dividing the country.

Leader of the group, Ayo Adebanjo said this on Thursday.
He said the group doesn’t believe in secession and disintegration of Nigeria but demands true federalism to address the country’s challenges.
He said, “We are not anarchists; we’re not secessionists. We recognize that there’s a democratically-elected government.

“However, it’s the considered position of Afenifere that the president urgently constitutes a Government of National Unity solely to undertake the restructuring of Nigeria, in consultation with the Nigerian people.

“The issue of restructuring is about our freedom. We’re democrats. I don’t want violence. I don’t want the country to break.”
Adebanjo also called for a sovereign national conference on restructuring, adding that the country must be returned to the 1960 Independence Constitution before the 2023 general elections.
He said, “The Nigeria that was agreed was, by design based on a parliamentary system of government.

“The Nigeria that was agreed was one that recognized the rights of the federating regions to nationhood within the ambit of the federation that was birthed.
“We remain convinced that the need for a sovereign national conference is imperative. The basis of the Nigerian state must be clearly negotiated.”
