Worried about the rising spate of kidnappings, banditry and killings, especially in the South West, the Egbe Omo Yoruba, North America (EOYNA) is set to engage via Zoom prominent Yoruba citizens in Nigeria in a dialogue on December 20, 2020. The town hall Virtual dialogue will start from 12 noon EST.
Topic for discussion, “Engaging Stakeholders in Solving Unfinished Business in Yorubaland”, will feature Dr Ifabukunmi Adewale, who is also the guest speaker. He will speak on “Yoruba Agenda and Security”. Drs Adekunle Gbadamosi and Olu Ekundayo will also speak on the controversial Covid-19 vaccine that many are wary of taking for diverse reasons.
In a phone conversation with Nigerian Tribune from Atlanta, Georgia, Bishop Adejube, the national secretary of EOYNA, said Yoruba in the Diaspora are worried about the negative stories from Nigeria and are willing to contribute to finding solutions to the problems Nigerians, especially Yoruba, are facing in the country.
“The Egbe has said it several times that only a restructured Nigeria can work for all and all the other regions should support the rising demand for true federalism in Nigeria. For those of us in the Diaspora, a working Nigeria is what we will all be proud of and EOYNA will continue to call for the restructuring of Nigeria,” he reiterated.
Other issues for discussions are the CBN directive on remittances (by Fidelity Bank) and update on EOYNA project, the Moremi Foundation & Yoruba Development Fund.
