Following a viral video on social media, threatening Igbos to vacate the South-West zone of the country, the Governor of Ondo State, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has urged the South Easterners to ignore the ultimatum given.
Akeredolu who is also the Chairman of the Southwest Governors’ Forum on Sunday condemned the viral video as he described it as divisive and revisionist.
Amid the social unrest in the country which was occasioned by series of violent protests, a UK based Nigerian with the name Adeyinka Grandson had in a viral video on social media issued a quit notice to some nationals, particularly the Igbos to vacate Yoruba Land, a situation which has continued to generate reactions across board.
While describing the video as childish and silly, the Governor enjoined the Igbos and other tribes in the Southwest to disregard the ultimatum and go about their legitimate business.
“We strongly condemn the puerile, divisive and revisionist video by one inconsequential individual by name Adeyinka Godson going viral that has given the Igbos an ultimatum to leave the South West Region.
“This video is not just senseless. It is the product of an agent of destabilization who does not even mean well for Yorubaland.
“Igbos, like every other tribe in the South West are free to go about their legitimate businesses. They are enjoined to ignore the ultimatum”.
