The former Governor of Oyo State, Rashidi Ladoja (that Sunday Igboho always speaks highly of) has now reacted to the Yoruba and Biafra agitation. Shortly after observing his Eid-el-Fitr prayer at the University of Ibadan Central Mosque, on Thursday, the former Governor spoke with journalists as he warned against war over call for self-determination in the country.


Ladoja said that Southerners are talking too much with fewer actions. By ‘Southerners’, he is referring to the Yoruba Nation agitators and the Biafra Republic agitators. He said that while Southerners keep talking and acting less, the Northerners have already started planning how to exit the country. He observed that a railway is being considered to link the North to the Niger Republic which he believes is the strategy by the Northerners to leave Nigeria.

In his words, he says ‘…who even tells you that the North is not even getting ready to go? Let us look at it, people in the South are talking too much and people up North are acting too much. In Yorubaland, we talk too much. The North is also preparing to leave and they are working at it. Do you think it is a mistake that they are constructing a railway to the Niger Republic when we have not even built a railway from Ibadan to Kano, not even Abuja and they said it is the first place we are going to spend our money?’

He added that ‘Can’t the refinery in Kaduna be repaired? Why are they saying they would build another refinery in Daura? And they would be bringing crude oil from the Niger Republic to the place. Don’t let us deceive ourselves, maybe a time will come when all of us will sit down together and separate peacefully’.

Ladoja believes that the Southerners are talking too much and they are not aware that ‘Northerners are also preparing to leave and they are working at it’.

Ladoja also cautioned against war over the agitation for self-determination in the country. He said that people only know the beginning of a war, not the end. He cites Syria as an example. 

He said nobody remembers how the war in Syria started but it has been on for years and everything they built is getting destroyed. He suggests that every form of agitation should be done softly in order to avoid war.
