Ayo Adebanjo, the leader of Yoruba sociocultural group, Afenifere, has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of fuelling injustice in the country through unequal distribution of key positions in his government.
He said that that the President purposely ensured that northerners dominated important institutions in the country.
Adebanjo spoke at a webinar hosted by Nzuko Umunna, an Igbo Think Tank, in partnership with Ovation International and Njenje Media.
He said, “I don’t want this country to break; I have contributed to the unity of this country before Buhari was born. Since 1950s we have been talking of a balanced constitution. In 1979, I spent one year in Maiduguri, campaigning for the UPN so we could have a united country. I was already a lawyer and there was peace in the western region so I didn’t have to go there, but we wanted the country to be together. So, when we talk about a united country, many of them have not contributed half of what some of us have.
“If today, they agree to restructure the country back to true federalism, there will be no agitation from any quarter, because all the problems we are having now are the products of the imposed constitution. Let us face it.”
