Banji Akintoye alleges plans to enslave Yoruba race

The newly elected Yoruba leader, Prof Banji Akintoye, has raised the alarm that some powers that be have been treating Yoruba race in Nigeria as slaves, saying the Yoruba must rescue themselves from the quagmire and they will fight with their 'great powers' and win.

He spoke against the alleged travails of the Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo, ahead of the 2023 presidency and the perceived hi-tech politicking between the Northern and the Southern parts of the country.

Akintoye, who served in the Senate between 1979 and 1983 during the Second Republic, raised the alarm at the sidelines of the anniversary lecture, entitled: 'Yoruba: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow,' organized by the Yoruba Heritage Group International Forum, held at House of Chiefs, parliament building, secretariat, Ibadan, to mark 126th year that Kiriji War that engulfed Yorubaland for 16 years ended.

Prof Akintoye tasked all Yoruba leaders and others to be interested in the happenings at the Presidency stressing that what is happenings now is an indication of what to come.

According to him, there are people among those controlling the Federal Government of Nigeria who has a lot of heavy questions to answer but was protected by the powers that be adding that all Yoruba must rise up and support the Vice president.
