The national coordinator of the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC) Gani Adams has said that the Yorubas are now desperate to leave Nigeria.

Adams in an interview with the Sun said the renewed quest by the people of the South-West extraction to leave can be attributed to believes that Nigeria is no longer working.

He also said restructuring as clamoured by majority of Nigerians do not entice Yorubas any more.

Adams said: “If you sample the opinion of the youths and others in Yoruba land, they are even tired of restructuring."

He added that the Yorubas are more interested in supporting self determination than restructuring.

He said: "They want self-determination on the basis of having their own nation."

“It is something that is very clear to everybody. The situation is worrisome because in Nigeria, some people say let us try and solve the problem but others say the problem must continue because they are benefitting from the system.

“In our experience at the National Conference, the various interests did not want to follow the same path," Adams said.

He also said that it is unfortunate that some people believe Nigeria can be patched to achieved equity and development across all divide.

“When you tell them that this is what happened in other countries including the United States and Britain, they would tell you that we should continue with the present structure.

“So, with the way things are going, the youth who want to have a better society have the rights to clamour for self-determination.

“I agree with Pa Adebanjo that Yoruba youths are clamouring for self-determination.

“Even some of us that are leaders of the youths, we have to calm them that if you are asking for a nation, we do not think that it would come in the spirit of peace and that we do not want war.

“What we are saying is that later we can become a nation but now, let us go with restructuring," he added.

We had earlier reported that the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the leadership of Nnamdi Kanu and some other groups in the South-East are also clamouring for the secession of the region.

The groups in their agitation are calling for a referendum which they believe would help them achieve the freedom of Biafra nation.
