Spokesperson of Afenifere, Dr Yinka Odumakin has lashed at Miyetti Allah over comments that the Yorubas should forget 2023 Presidency if they don’t stop the formation of Amotekun – the South West regional security network.
According to Odumakin, “Miyetti Allah now owns the Presidency which they can gift to who they want and deny who they choose? What insolence? How can cow herders threaten a people that produced the first lawyer in 1879 because a lawyer who doesn’t know the law is overreaching himself?
“Can they go and tell Yoruba in Benin Republic such idiocy? It is now a crime that we inhabit the same country with them? If Yoruba would be conised, is it by those we should employ on our ranches?
“To hell with their Presidency if the condition for it is that we must allow them to continue to waste the lives of our people. Who told these people Yoruba cannot opt for self-determination and have our own president? If they see the protection of our lives as politics, we are definitely in a wrong and impossible country.”
