Yoruba Group asks Sanusi to leave Lagos;MURIC laments

AOKOYA had on Sunday asked the dethroned Sanusi, who arrived Lagos on Saturday, to return to the North. MURIC described AOKOYA’s action as mean, callous and inhuman. The Muslim group made this known in a statement circulated on Monday, 16th March 2020 by its director, Professor Ishaq Akintola. “We are perturbed by the position of Apapo Oodua Koya. They are asking the deposed Emir who took refuge in Lagos to go back to the North,” MURIC said in a statement signed by its Director, Prof Ishaq Akintola on Monday. “It is mean, callous and inhuman. That statement is egregious, detestable and nauseating. It smirks of heartlessness, intolerance and gymnastic irredentism. Worse still, it stands in contradistinction to the concept of Omoluabi (meaning well trained in good morals) of which the Yoruba have been well known for ages.

Sanusi who was dethroned on Monday, 9th March 2020 by the Governor of Kano, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje and thereafter banished to Awe in Nasarawa State. An Abuja court on Friday 13th March 2020 quashed his banishment and he moved to Lagos immediately.

“We remind those behind AOKOYA that Yorubas are equally scattered across Nigeria. They should be worried about actions and utterances capable of inciting other tribes against the Yoruba in other places. This is the time for Yoruba leaders to caution extremist groups in their midst.” he said.

“AOKOYA also claimed that the ex-Emir was in Lagos to establish another Fulani Emirate in Yorubaland. Nothing could be more laughable. It is kindergarten, base and pedestrian reasoning.

“As an intellectually endowed race in this country, we expect that the Yoruba do not need to appeal to primordial sentiments. They are above it. They should, therefore, purge themselves of elements capable of whipping up irrational, illogical and unacceptable ideas.

“We also remind people in the South West in particular and across Nigeria in general that Section 41 of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria guarantees freedom of movement as well as the freedom to reside in any part of the country. “The section says, ‘Every citizen of Nigeria is entitled to move freely throughout Nigeria and to reside in any part thereof, and no citizen of Nigeria shall be expelled from Nigeria or refused entry thereto or exit therefrom’.

“We, therefore, call on the government of Lagos State to provide adequate security and comfort for the former emir just as it has always done for all its citizens. “We advise the Yoruba group to distance itself from acrobatic xenophobia and to learn the arts of courtesy, civility and kindness. It must add a human face to activism. We have no scintilla of doubt that no true Omoluabi will reject a guest in a period of travail.

“The Yoruba race is one of the most accommodating on the African continent. This informs the popular Yoruba proverb ‘Oju alejo ni a ti nya owo, eyin re la nsan’, meaning, we can borrow money in the presence of a guest (to entertain him) and payback after he has left. “This proverb provides indisputable testimony to the uncommon hospitality of the Yoruba race. Yoruba leaders of today must not allow merchants of aggravated ethnicity to tarnish this good image,” he advised.
