A Pan-Yoruba Socio-cultural group, Yoruba KO’YA Movement has kicked off a crusade across the South West, Nigeria aimed at championing the restructuring of Nigeria.
The Yoruba group, which staged a protest to the State House of Assemblies complex in Lagos, Oyo, Ogun, Osun and Ekiti States, said it “will not end until the House of parliaments in Yoruba land takes it upon themselves to champion the restructuring of Nigeria.”
National Organising Secretary, Mr. Maxwell Adeleye, said the action tagged ‘Sit out for restructuring crusade’, also warned the Federal Government to commence the restructuring of the country “or risk a mother of all mass action which it said is already imminent.”
The statement reads: “It is only through restructuring that crimes and social vices such as kidnapping, farmers and herdsmen clashes, armed robbery and the raging hunger, poverty, starvation, youth unemployment, infrastructure decadence, corruption in public service, lack of quality and affordable education and health care services could be drastically reduced it not nipped in the bud.”
The members of the group in Lagos, who stormed the various Assemblies in the South West presented their policy papers on restructuring to the respective Speakers of the Assemblies.
