You’ll Have Yourselves To Blame’ — Tinubu Warns Yoruba Nation Agitators At Meeting With Afenifere

In response to recent calls for secession in the South West region, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has pledged to take strong action against anyone threatening the unity and independence of Nigeria.

Tinubu's statement follows incidents involving the Yoruba Nation movement attempting to seize government buildings in Oyo State.
Over the weekend, individuals believed to be Yoruba Nation supporters wearing military attire stormed the Oyo State secretariat in Ibadan in an effort to take control of the State House of Assembly. They were swiftly apprehended by security forces.

The attempted takeover was reportedly led by Modupe Onitiri-Abiola, who, in a widely circulated video, proclaimed the secession of Yorubaland from Nigeria.
During a meeting with Afenifere leaders at the State House, President Tinubu reiterated his unwavering commitment to Nigeria's unity and democratic principles, emphasizing that those who challenge the country's sovereignty will face severe repercussions.

Tinubu assured the delegation that his administration is resolute in defending Nigeria's borders and safeguarding its citizens, highlighting progress made in combating terrorism, banditry, and kidnapping.

The president further stated that his government will not yield to those attempting to disrupt the nation's stability and will intensify efforts to maintain security.

These statements from Tinubu come in the midst of escalating demands for self-governance from various ethnic groups, particularly in the South East and South West regions.

Additionally, Oba Falae praised Tinubu for infrastructure projects like the rehabilitation of the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos and urged the president to prioritize fairness, equity, and constitutional reforms to empower states.

The meeting concluded with reassurances of support for the president's initiatives, highlighting the importance of reciprocal engagements for national development.
