Popular Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Igboho has revealed that the Yoruba Nation agitators had the support of the Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, to hold a rally in Akure.
He made this known while speaking at the palace of the Deji of Akure, Oba Aladelusi Aladetoyinbo on Saturday.
Recall that supporters of the movement stormed Akure to rally support.
Speaking at the Palace, Igboho said the agitators did not plan to stop their campaign until the Yoruba Nation became a reality.

Igboho expressed that there was a need for traditional rulers to be given prominent roles in the constitution to enable them to get more involved in the administration of the state and local governments.
He said, “Traditional rulers are supposed to be the father of all but they have been relegated and I believe all these anomalies would end when Yoruba Nation comes to being.
“Politicians have sold us to Fulani and now these Fulani are beyond their control. It is time we free ourselves. No going back on the agitation, no election in 2023 and I have a strong belief that we are going to succeed.
“The governor is aware of these things we are doing, we have his support. We are no more under the Fulani. All we want is Yoruba Nation,” Igboho declared.
