Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola has labelled those agitating for Oduduwa Republic as fools.
The Minister of Interior was speaking on Saturday at his 64th birthday celebration in Osun State where he was Governor for 8 years, when he made these comments.
He said that Nigeria is the country that is going to liberate Africa, and if it should fall, Africa will be liable to attacks.
“Those who are agitating for Yoruba and Biafra nation are foolish. Any Nigerian must seek Unity, harmony and peace for our country. If we refuse to entrench unity, peace and strength for Nigeria, Africans may be enslaved for another time.”
He added that those agitators should desist from clamouring for secession as those to suffer most if a war breaks out will be children, women and those living with disabilities.
“Anything that threatens and creates a problem for Nigeria may cause backwardness for our country for 50 years,” he added.
