Oodua nation: Osun disowns call for secession

Osun Government has dissociated the state from a seditious group going round some public schools disseminating a secession message of the Yoruba nation to students.

This is just as the state government, through the Ministry of Education, suspended the principals of the three schools, who allowed the seditious group into their school premises to speak with the students.

Reacting to a viral video which showed the group talking to the students about the plan of the Yoruba nation to secede from Nigeria, Commissioner for Education, Folorunsho Bamisayemi, said the administration of Governor Adegboyega Oyetola was not aware and never gave consent to the group to speak with public school students in the state.

Bamisayemi, who emphasized that the administration of Governor Oyetola frowns at any move to disunite the country, maintained that the state had never at any point in time associated with such group on what he described as a move that is capable of hindering the unity of the country.

“Nigeria is one entity and will continue to remain so. Osun State government never gave consent to any group to speak with students of public schools on a matter we know can cause disunity and chaos in the country.

“As a state, we believe in the Nigerian dream. We urge every Nigerian to pray and work that Nigeria should not break up. As for those principals that allowed such group into the premises of our schools, be ready to face the consequences of their actions.”

Also, Special Adviser to Governor Oyetola on Education, Jamiu Olawumi, said it is unfortunate some unscrupulous elements are going about polluting the minds of  young children because they know they are still naive.

While warning the group to, henceforth, stay away from Osun, he said students of secondary schools in the state and across the country will continue to be a symbol of Nigeria’s unity at all times.
