Tara Fela-Durotoye said and I quote ‘A nation is not defined by its borders or the boundaries of its land mass. Rather, a nation is defined by adverse people who have been unified by a cause and a value system and who are committed to a vision for the type of society they wish to live in and give to the future generations to come.’
In lieu of the above, on behalf of the entire Yoruba Council of Youths Worldwide, Ogun State Council under the auspicious chairmanship of Hon. Sunday Adebowale, joins the entire world and good people of our beloved country to celebrate the sixtieth (60th) anniversary of our independence.
The number one (No. 1) Yoruba Youth of ogun state in his statement released to the press charges all Nigerian youths not to be used as a devilish tool to divide the unity and peaceful coexistence of our dear multilingual country as tirelessly and relentlessly achieved by our heroes past, but rather be used as tools to proffering possible and fruitful solutions to the challenges facing the growth and development of this country. He further emphasized categorically that Nigeria has remained a strong and unbreakable country despite all plots and by God’s willing no weapon fashioned against her shall prosper.
He then call on the attention of the government across all levels and parastatal to ensure they always have the interest of the populace at the top of their dealings in order for all to enjoy the dividend of democracy.
We therefore unequivocally seize this medium to inform our members and good people of Ogun state , whole world, and having earlier instructed and directed by Aare Oladotun Hassan,Esq.(National President YCYW) that all members of Yoruba Council of Youths Worldwide, Yoruba Council of Women Worldwide and all our affiliate organizations not to promote any Oodua flags, emblems, insignia nor participate in the declared ‘Yoruba Exit Rally’ of 1st October, 2020.
Let’s celebrate a peaceful and loving atmosphere in our country by remembering all our national heroes either dead or alive who have fought and given their lives for our freedom.
Our prayer is that May God in his infinite mercy florish our country with progressively developments that will earn each and everyone of us the good lives we deserve in our father’s land, so that we can all be proud of ourselves and our country
Once again, we say congratulations to all Nigerians and Happy Independent Day!
