The President of Young Yoruba for Freedom, Adeyinka has written the President Donald Trump of United States Of America asking for his support in actualizing an Independent Oduduwa republic. He accused self serving politicians in England of helping radical Islam to flourish.
See full letter below.
Mr. President of the United States.
My name is Adeyinka Grandson, a Yoruba citizen and the President of the Young Yoruba for Freedom.
The Yoruba homeland was Balkanized into three different countries by the English, French and German at the Berlin Conference of 1884/1885.
Yoruba people are therefore partly in Western and Central Nigeria; Southern and Central Benin Republic and Central Togo.
Mr President, the history of immigration to the United States details the movement of people to the United States starting with the first European settlements from around 1600.
Beginning around this time, the English, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and Belgian extraction settled primarily on the east coast. Later Africans were imported into the United States.
Thus began the first and the longest era of immigration, lasting until the American Revolution in 1775.
The Treaty of Paris in 1783 formally ended the American Revolution, confirming the United States complete separation from the British Empire.
Among the significant results of the revolution was the creation of a new Constitution of the United States.
Mr President, the Constitution of the United States, created by the British, French, Dutch, and Spanish in 1787, remains the supreme law of the United States.
It is also the case in the United Kingdom.
The Wales Acts of 1535 and 1542, known as the Acts of Union between England and Wales, were parliamentary measures by which the legal system of England was extended to Wales.
The intention was to create a single state and a single legal jurisdiction.
In 1701, the English and Welsh parliaments passed a law to form a Union with Scotland.
By 1706, the Scottish parliament also passed a similar law to form a Union with England and Wales.
Together, these parliaments proclaimed their Union, the United Kingdom of Great Britain.
The Irish joined the Union in 1801 after its own parliament had also passed a law to join the Union.
The Union name was changed from the United Kingdom of Great Britain to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland.
Mr. President, there was a war in 1922, in which the Irish left the Union to form the Republic of Ireland.
The Northern part of the Irish sphere, however, remained in the Union.
Again for the third time, the name of the Union was changed from the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
Mr President, the creations of the United States as well as the United Kingdom were done by its people.
But in the case of Nigeria, however, the country was created, not by its people, but by the English colonial government in 1914.
Notwithstanding, in 1951, the Yoruba people, the Igbo people and the Hausa people negotiated with the English colonial government a new constitution on a regional basis.
By 1952, the constitution solidified the division of Nigeria into three ethnic regions – Eastern, Western and Northern regions plus the country’s capital.
By 1956, the Eastern and Western regions became internally self-governing, and the Northern region achieved this status in 1959.
Regrettably, by January 1966, the Igbo through organized violence of a military coup, suspended the regional constitutions.
In July 1966, the Hausa, also through organized violence ousted the Igbo from power through a military takeover and then instituted a unitary constitution.
Mr President, three groups agreed to a regional system of government in 1951, only for the Igbo and the Hausa to renege on this agreement in 1966.
Since then, the Yoruba people have insisted on a return to the 1951 agreement or the breakup of Nigeria.
But self-serving career politicians in England are allowing radical Islam to flourish, propping up the Fulani radical Islamists in Nigeria who are against a return to the regional system of government.
The current Nigeria is not oriented towards development, advancement or prosperity.
Nigeria now tends towards the maximization of power by the Fulani radical Islamists.
As a result, authority and control in Nigeria have been accumulated in the confines of the self-serving career politicians in England who are allowing radical Islam to flourish, propping up the Fulani radical Islamists in Nigeria led by President Buhari.
These have stunted the growth and development of the Yoruba region and her citizens.
Regional system of government is believed to be the most appropriate strategy in rebalancing the growth to make Nigeria more sustainable.
Hence, the Yoruba people, the most economically integrated nations within Nigeria, responsible for 49 percent of the income of Nigeria and 80 percent of its GDP, are leading the demand for regional autonomy.
However, since the key demand of the Yoruba people was aggressively rejected by the Fulani radical Islamists, the Yoruba youth had built sufficient membership.
And for the most part, prudently created the Movement for Oduduwa Republic, needed to energize the Yoruba people in the face of economic injustice occasioned by the current unitary political system.
That practically robs the Yoruba nation of its wealth and resources to the benefit of the Fulani radical Islamists.
The result is that the Yoruba youth is leading the demand for Oduduwa Republic, and can hopefully continue to push their demand peacefully, but otherwise through organized violence where the Fulani radical Islamists led by the Federal Government of Nigeria continues to constitute a clog in the wheel to a path of sustained growth and development of the Yoruba Country.
Mr President, the Yoruba nation needs your support when we do take over our wealth and resources from the control of the Fulani radical Islamists, propped up by the self-serving career politicians in England.
Thank you, Mr President.
God bless you.
God bless the United States.
God bless Oduduwa Republic.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
