Peace in Southwest is that of graveyard, we’re highly marginalized – Yoruba elders speak out

An apex Yoruba socio-cultural group, Yoruba Council of Elders, YCE, has noted that Nigeria is sitting on keg of gunpowder.

According to the group, the quit notice by coalition of Arewa Youths on Igbos living in the North and agitation for State of Biafra by groups in the Southeast were a reflection of the political atmosphere in the country.

The group said this after its 19th executive members meeting held in Ibadan yesterday, the Oyo State capital.

Addressing newsmen immediately after the meeting, Secretary General of the council, Dr Kunle Olajide said, “We are sitting on a keg of gunpowder because no part of the country except the South West is at peace and that peace in the South West is a peace of the graveyard.

“We have the largest number of unemployed graduates and our infrastructures have collapsed. As far as YCE is concerned, the quit notice by the Arewa Youths and the call for Biafra by IPOB are a reflection of political thermometer and temperature of Nigeria.

“It shows there is uneasiness in every part of this nation. If Arewa youths could go to Arewa House to give ultimatum, then you should know they have the backing of some of their leaders.”
