Separatist agitator, Sunday Igboho has said that the struggle to carve out a Yoruba Nation from present-day Nigeria will not cease because a Yoruba man is president.

He said that the struggle pre-dates President Bola Tinubu’s emergence.

“We haven’t dropped the agitation for the Yoruba nation despite the emergence of President Bola Tinubu.

“We have been on this agitation long even before Tinubu clinched the presidential ticket of his political party, the All Progressives Congress.

“Our agitation is not predicated on the election of a Yoruba man as the president of the country. Tinubu is a Yoruba man and his becoming the President can’t stop us from the struggle for the realisation of the Yoruba nation.

“We, in the Ilana Omo Oodua movement, have made this clarification several times in the media space.

“You may think that you haven’t heard from us or seen much of us recently, we are still on the project and the United Nations (UN) is aware of our activities we have submitted correspondences and letters keeping the world body abreast of our progression in the struggle for Yoruba,” The Punch quoted him as saying.

Igboho, who is presently with his family in Germany, promised to return to Nigeria “very soon”.

“When I return you will know definitely. It’s not going to be a secret affair. Nigerians will know whenever I am back,” he said.
