We‘re committed to restructuring of Nigeria – Yoruba elders 

 

The Yoruba socio-cultural group, Council of Yoruba Elders (CYE) Thursday expressed its commitment to restructuring of Nigeria.

The CYE stated this in a statement after a meeting of its global executive council  in Ibadan to review the communiqué issued at the end of the South West Governors’ Forum held in Lagos recently.

In the statement signed by its secretary general, Dr Victor Taiwo, CYE pledged to collaborate with persons and institutions that advance the well-being and interest of the Yoruba people.

Lauding the six governors of the South-west states over their commitment to the development of their motherland, it stated that CYE “really commend their commitments toward a greater regional cohesion of our region.”

The council tasked the governors to continue on this trajectory to show their people a good example of brotherhood and commitment to the well-being of motherland.

“We observed that all the six governors of the South-west geo-political zone were in attendance. This is commendable as their presence is the first sign of commitment. We urge the governors to continue on this trajectory to show our people good example of brotherhood and commitment to the well-being of motherland.

“The Adoption of a common anthem for Yorubaland – Ise Wa Fun Ile Wa – is most commendable. It signals a rallying point and the promise of a rebirth.

“The Council urged the governors to further ensure the entrenchment of the anthem by making it mandatory in all primary and secondary schools in the South-west as well as in all formal gatherings – social and political,” it said.
