*YORUBALAND AT THE EDGE OF OBLITERATION*: A CLARION CALL FOR
COLLECTIVE RESCUE VIA THE LAUNCH OF YORUBALAND SECURITY
*INVITATION AS THE ROYAL FATHER OF THE DAY AT THE EVENT*
With all humility, respect and sense of responsibility, on behalf of God Almighty, our ancestors, the leaders of the organisations forming this
amalgamated body and the entire members of Yoruba race across the world, I
hereby exercise the mandate imposed on me to invite you to an event as instructively reflected via the above headline while the accompanying
attachment gives the graphic description of the agenda.
We believe the spirit of patriotism will not let anybody recede from this event.
Thank you immensely and may God bless you sir.
Dr. VICTOR TAIWO
Your Imperial Majesty/Your Eminence/Your Excellency/Dear Sir/Ma,
YORUBALAND AT THE EDGE OF OBLITERATION: A CALL FOR COLLECTIVE RESCUE VIA THE LAUNCH OF ‘YORUBALAND SECURITY
Babylonia was once not only a great country in the world but incontrovertible first global power in history – the country or empire once ruled by that enigma called Alexander the Great. Her walls were so formidable that they were considered impenetrable by enemies. But by a default, she did not only fall to the force of Cyrus the Great, the king of Persia in the battle of Opis in 539 BC, but that she is no more in existence today.
Let us all pray that the existence of the great Yorubaland will not become
history. Let us all unanimously say a big Amen. But is prayer enough?
Aside all that the foetus in the womb knows, General Theophilus Danjuma
specifically warned that a stock of people in Africa have positioned themselves to take the entire Nigerian land space. And this was corroborated by the Bauchi State Governor Bala Mohammed who brazenly said his stock of people
from across Africa should be given the constitutional right to occupy the entire
landscape of Nigeria including our own Yorubaland.
The question now is; are the above revelations mere insinuations today or
practical reality? The practical launch of the premeditated attack began in Owo town in Ondo-State a few weeks ago when a church congregation were
massacred by the bandits who have enmeshed our entire landscape with series of killings, maiming and abductions over the years.
In a case like this, there are five categories of leaders in the land who should
naturally have risen to the occasion viz:
Our Political Leaders (Elder Statesmen, Governors, Legislators, etc.)
Our Rich and
Our Religious Leaders.
But quite unfortunately all efforts to galvanize these categories of our leaders in an underground manner over the decades as concomitant with security norms have all proved fruitless. We have bad records to show for
this. They seem to pretend as if nothing is wrong in the face of the steady obliteration.
However, as James Garfield postulated, ‘Nothing turns themselves up unless
somebody turns them up’. Hence this new leadership and the new open approach.
Thus, lest Yorubaland becomes an history of Babylonia, the various Yoruba emancipation organisations in the homeland have come together recently to
rescue the land from being consigned to the garbage of oblivion under the auspices of APAPO EGBE ALAABO ILE OODUA (HOMELAND DEFENCE AND SECURITY INITIATIVE) which has poised itself with the challenge of rescuing
the land in a most peaceful manner without instigating any political colouration and hindrance to the political and economic pursuits of our
politicians and business men and women.
This is, therefore, a test of patriotism by identifying the true sons and daughters of Yorubaland as distinct from the class of FFO – For Food Only.
To this effect, we are hereby making a clarion call to all our Governors, Obas,
Elder Statesmen, Elders of the land, our Religious Leaders, our Retired Military Officers, our Retired Police Officers, our Retired Security Officers, the members of the Nigerian Bar Association, other professionals, Academics, Market
leaders, Multi-national companies, Captains of Industries and people from all walks of life to gloriously honour the invitation to the event of the ‘YORUBALAND SECURITY TRUST FUND’ being launched under the
arrangements as will be unfurled shortly.
We believe that no BONA FIDE, TRUE, DNA-COMPLIANT sons and daughters of Yorubaland will defy and not identify with this mission. *Thus, aside making efforts to reach out to the individuals involved in this arrangement we are*
*indulgently making this invitation a public transmission*.
Let us also make our lodestar known to the world that this setting is
harbouring no malice, no bitterness, no offence, no vengeance, no vendetta and no discrimination against any personalities in the land. This should rather be a
platform for love, forgiveness and reconciliation.
So, see as follows:
