Yoruba Nation: Akintoye Leads a One Million March To The United Nations For The Liberation Of The People


86 years old Professor Stephen Banji Akintoye, the apex leader of the umbrella body of Yoruba Self-Determination Groups, Ilana Omo Oodua has been fighting alongside the southern leaders and activists in demanding a referendum. He recently moved to the Benin Republic in solidarity with Yoruba Nation activist, Sunday Igboho.


To demand a referendum, leaders of the south and middle belt of Nigeria will join Akintoye as he will be leading a one-week one-million march to the United Nations General Assembly to drum up support for the actualization of the sovereignty of Yoruba and Biafra nation.


In a statement by his Media Aide, Maxwell Adeleye, they are rejecting the 1999 Constitution of Nigeria and calling for a United Nations supervised Referendum.


“We have read a trending statement authored by a faceless group demanding for the ban of Ilana Omo Oodua from making presentation before the world at the upcoming United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).

“We wish to say very expressly that Ilana Omo Oodua, contrary to media reports, will not be making any official presentation at UNGA.


“What will be happening at UNGA is that the members of Ilana Omo Oodua under the leadership of Emeritus Professor Banji Akintoye alongside other members of NINAS from the Lower Niger and Middle-Belt of Nigeria will be holding a one million man march opposite the United Nations Headquarters in New York, the United States from 14th to 21st September 2021.


“The marchers will demand for a referendum to decide on the rights to self-determination of the people who want an end to unitary system of Nigeria which has been turned into an apartheid state.


“We shall also be demanding, first and foremost, for the abolition of 1999 Constitution of Nigeria which we have shown to be a fraud perpetrated against the people of the South and Middle Belt of Nigeria given that the people did NOT make it.


“All sons and daughters of the Lower Niger (South East, South-South), South West and Middle-Belt’s Clans living in the United States of America are being mobilized to stand up for their Indigenous Nationalities by participating in the one week one Million March for the liberation of their people.”


“The planned march shall be historic and epoch-making. We want the whole world to see the level of injustice, oppression, and intimidation currently going on in Nigeria. The time is now.”
