Aare Ona Kakanfo-designate, Gani Adams, has stated Nigeria needs a surgical operation to remove the cancer of disintegration.


Adams spoke at Land Mark Hotel, Baniya, Dubai, venue of the launch of the United Arab Emirate’s (UAE’s) chapter of the Odua Progressive Union (OPU).

He noted that against all odds, Nigeria would soon be restructured along regional line.

The Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC) leader urged OPU members to play their roles well in the envisaged new Nigeria.

Describing OPU as a wonderful platform for the unification of the Yoruba race in the Diaspora, Adams said: “Before today, the noble body operates effectively in 78 countries around the world.

“Today’s launch brings the number of countries OPU is operational to 79, even though there are still more countries ready for launch as well.”

He said the body had provided a veritable platform for Yoruba indigenes living far away from their home land to constantly interact on issues of common interest, especially those affecting the Yoruba and Nigeria.

According to him, OPU is a non-partisan, non-religious, ethnic, socio-cultural and integrated sustainable development initiative packaged and developed by Yoruba sons and daughters based on a common vision and a shared conviction.

Adams said the union is anchored on the determination of the Yoruba to extricate themselves from neglect and under-development.

Insisting that the members have roles to play in rebuilding Nigeria, the OPU leader said: “We cannot shy away from the reality of the unhealthy state of our country, Nigeria.

“We all have a role to play to ensure that our country returns to its glorious past.

“That is why I challenge you, not only to lend your voice but to also ensure that you play your part in the restructured Nigeria that will emerge soon, by the grace of God.

“To everyone who means well for the country, it has been unanimously agreed that Nigeria must be restructured along regional line for its glory to return.

“Nigeria, for many of its over 250 ethnic groups, is obviously not a nation in the sense that we regard France, United Kingdom or South Africa as a nation.

“That is why, given an option, many of the ethnic groups in Nigeria would prefer to be independent of the country.

“Already, groups, such as the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA), among others, have more or less shattered whatever illusions we may retain regarding the Nigeria that we are living in.

“While Nigeria would obviously be better off remaining a nation, it is also true that a surgical operation is required to take out the cancer of disintegration currently ravaging the country on every side.”
