Aare Gani Adams, the Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, has said he supports the popular view that we have graduated from restructuring to self-determination, adding that the main powerful bloc is not ready for restructuring.
According to him, he is not the only one in the perspective of self-determination for the Yoruba Nation, adding that the majority of the Yoruba race is ready for self-determination.
The Aare Ona Kakanfo spoke in Ikeja, Lagos, on Wednesday at the public presentation of a book, ‘Roundtable Discussion on Economy and Restructuring in Nigeria,’ by the National Pilot Book.
Adams said, “I support the popular view that we have graduated from restructuring to self-determination but the main powerful bloc is not ready.
”This is what Yoruba leaders are clamouring for. If Nigeria is not restructured in the next three years, the future is bleak. We have different types of restructuring; so they should know the kind of restructuring that they want.
”If Nigeria will be restructured, we have to borrow points from 1960 and 1963 which give room for regionalism.
”Through the Abacha (late Sani Abacha) regime, also allowed that the six zones can develop at their own paces. My own is self-determination, you prepare for a negotiation.”
