According to a report by The Nation, the supporters of Yoruba Nation have vowed not to relent in their campaign for self-determination, declaring they will present their case at the 76th UN General Assembly in September.

The Nation reports the umbrella body of Yoruba self-determination groups, Ilana Omo Oodua, had endorsed the ongoing petition being pushed by the Nigerian Indigenous Nationalities Alliance for Self-Determination (NINAS), which urged the Federal Government to conduct a referendum.

One of the leaders of Ilana Omo Odua, Prof. Wale Adeniran, in a zoom conversation organised by UK-based Heritage Multimedia TV on Tuesday evening monitored by The Nation, explained the UN General Assembly would be an opportunity to explain the Yoruba Nation agitation to world leaders.

Adeniran said: “You’ve hit it right in front of the head, that’s a golden opportunity for us to present our case forcefully, before the entire world.

“So that one week, impress it on all Yoruba people all over the world to descend on New York, and the UN general assembly.



“I am going to point out to Prof. Akintoye that we would have to be part of the event in US.”

While giving an update of the Yourba Nation petition submitted to the International Criminal Court (ICC), he said: “The ball is in our court to begin to push our case and continue to shout it.

“We’ve submitted our letter and it has been acknoweled, it is now left for us to embark on aggressive propaganda for the ICC to look into case, you know they are humans too.
