Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu has described the founder of Ilana Omo Oodua, Prof Banji Akintoye and other groups agitating for Yoruba nation as hustlers.

Akeredolu had said self-acclaimed Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho and other groups agitating for Yoruba nation were not welcome in Ondo.

But Akintoye attacked Akeredolu over his comment and for rejecting Yoruba nation.

“We wish to say very clearly that Akeredolu is entitled to his opinion. He has only spoken for himself. If he is sure he speaks for the classical masses of Ondo State, he should ensure that his army of state-induced terrorists allow us to stage our one million march peacefully in Akure, Ondo State capital to prove whether he spoke for Ondo state people or for himself.

“Akeredolu feeds 100 per cent on the commonwealth of Ondo State people. He is a member of the tiny neo-liberal and neo-classical elites who will never support the wishes and aspirations of the masses,” Akintoye said.

But Akeredolu, in a statement on Thursday by his Special Assistant on Special Duties and Strategy, Doyin Odebowale, said reinstated that there would be no agitation for secession in any part of Ondo State.

He said Akintoye should submit himself to the people if he is so desirous of representing them.

According to him, it is presumptuous, denigrating and condescendingly spiteful for a group of hustlers, living largely in anonymity but struggling for relevance, to keep proclaiming and legislating on issues which affect the destiny of a whole people, without the faintest suggestion of paying even scant regard to their feelings or extending due courtesy to the real representatives of the people whose opinions they discounted as unimportant.

Akeredolu said the people were discerning and that the knew the impostors, as they had not forgotten the activities of the suborned agitators, the presumed penitent activists.

He added that the Ondo people, and indeed Yoruba were the easiest to lead but the most difficult to deceive, saying that with them, sophistry and demagoguery had their limits.


  1. I think it’s time that the security concerned should deal with people like Tony and his likes writing nonsense while contributing to matters of importance in our country. For God’s sake, why someone not from jungle or good parental background should be calling fellow Nigerians animals while discussing issues. Until they put stop to their imaginary superiority over others would there be ever lasting peace in this country. What a shame!

  2. The Yorubas are on the march to freedom from the animals. A million Akeredolus cannot stop the train. I will advise the organisers of the ONE MILLION MARCH to go ahead and silence him .

  3. Akeredolu is a bastard now. If he is sure? Let have a million match in Akure without activating his terror machineries. Can he say this before elders in his village Owo. May God destroy his stinking mouth

  4. This governor needs his brain to be examined. This is a man that invited representatives of the animals called Fulani and some Northern governors to a meeting in Akure, leaving out the Yoruba representatives.
    Akeredolu is a bastard, trying to please the nonentity in Aso Rock “Buhari”
