Arigbabuwo is not our leader, says Northern Yoruba Council

Share This

From Femi Oyelola, Kaduna

The Yoruba Community Council in the 19 Northern states and Abuja has disowned the purported leader of the council Alhaji Mohammed Arigbabuwo who has been parading himself as Yoruba Leader in the North in order to defraud people. The Council stated this in a press statement, signed the Public Relation Officer of the council Alhaji Yunus Alao Muibi and   made available to the media in Kaduna, yesterday.

The Council said Arigbabuwo  as never a member of the Yoruba Community Council and the only elected President-General and leader of the council is Alhaji Abdul-Ganiyu Ishola Oguntoyinbo. It, therefore, threatened to sue him if he persists.

The statement added that the said Arigbabuwo’s mission was to cause disharmony among the Yoruba community.

“He has been going about requesting for funds and other things under false pretence that, he is a Yoruba leader, all just to cause disharmony among the Yoruba.

“Mohammed Arigbabuwo has been making embarrassing statements which are calculated to embarrass the generality of the Yoruba Community Council.

“Mohammed Aribgabuwo has no inherent rights to undermine the authority of the duly constituted Yoruba Community Council. Importantly, all entreaties made to him to see reasons were ignored”, the statement read.

The council however called on all Yoruba community members in the North, the state Presidents and Obas to stay away from Arigbabuwo, adding that, the council will not hesitate to take legal action against him if he doesn’t desist from such impersonation of highest order.
