FG creating anxiety across the country with its actions - Akintoye

The chairman of the political committee of Afenifere, Professor Banji Akintoye, has maintained that President Muhammadu Buhari had been fuelling secessionist agitations with his words and body language towards those calling for the restructuring of Nigeria.

Akintoye, a renowned historian, told the Nigerian Tribune in an interview, that the things being said by officials of the federal government were creating the impression that "there is hard determination to hold on to the status quo and that is creating anxiety across the country."

According to the revered professor, going by President Buhari's statements, those calling for restructuring were the ones provoking secessionist sentiment in the country.

Professor Akintoye is of the opinion that President Buhari's body language towards restructuring is not encouraging.

He further stated that Nigerians were sure that the government was not ready to restructure the country.

His words: "What is generating secessionist agitations is that people are sure that the federal government is determined not to change anything, in spite of the fact that they made the promise that they were going to change and do restructuring."

Akintoye also reacted to the claim by former Kaduna state governor, Alhaji Balarabe Musa, that Yorubas had always had secessionist tendencies, noting that the records were clear that the southwest "has never asked to be allowed to secede from Nigeria."
