Nigeria’s 1914 amalgamation created a lopsided union – YGC

A group, the Yoruba Global Council, YGC, Sunday, faulted the 1914 amalgamation of the Northern and Southern Protectorates of Nigeria noting that created a lopsided union.

In a statement by its spokesman, Chair of the Department of Political Studies and International Relations, North West University in South Africa, Professor Lere Amusan, the YGC said it was committed to the rebirth of a new Nigeria where there “is equity, fairplay and ample respect for human dignity and self-worth.”

The YGC said it was coming as a child of necessity to rejuvenate the Yoruba race to the track of laudable past of rich culture, robust economy and decency

The statement reads: “The Yoruba Global Council was conceived after a thorough review of our antecedents, our travails, our plight and what the future portend for us as Oduduwa descendants of the Yoruba race, in the present-day Nigeria. Ours is a child of necessity on a rescue mission at a time like this, when tradition, custom, culture, heritage and values are fast developing wings for a flight to possible oblivion.
