Supreme Court

Popular political leaders in the southwest are set to meet over the rising secessionist agitation from the geopolitical zone.

According to emerging reports, the meeting is scheduled for Sunday, May 23, and will be convened by a former interim chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), and prominent Osun State APC chieftain, Chief Bisi Akande.

Expected to attend the meeting are the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila; APC national leader, Bola Tinubu; Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos state; his Ogun state counterpart, Dapo Abiodun; Governor Gboyega Oyetola of Osun state and Ondo state governor, Rotimi Akeredolu.

The meeting is expected to hold at the Lagos House, Marina, on Sunday, May 23.

Others include the Ekiti state governor, Kayode Fayemi; the chairman of the Police Service Commission, Musiliu Smith; a former Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Alani Akinrinade; and former APC southwest vice-chairman, Pius Akinyelure.

It was gathered that the meeting was convened to address rising calls for secession in the light of the activities of personalities like Sunday Adeyemo (aka Sunday Igboho) and others.

Recall that Chief Ayo Adebanjo, one of the leaders of Afenifere, a Yoruba socio-cultural group, had commented on the secessionist agitation for the Yoruba nation by some activists in the southwestern region.

Chief Adebanjo said the failure of the Nigerian government to protect the citizens and other issues led to the secession calls by some youths from some regions in the country. The Yoruba leader, however, said the Afenifere group does not support the agitation to divide the country.
