Comrade Zacheaus said YOV group is currently in 176 countries across all the six continents.
Zacchaeus through the statement said that the peaceful rally which is tagged, “Oodua Republic” sensitization campaign was initiated to draw the attention of the global world to situation and happenings in Nigeria, noted that the rally would be conducted in line with the global template for the fulfilment of its desire as well the liberation of the Yoruba people in Nigeria.
“The rally is to sensitize the world on the need to liberate Yoruba race from the shackles of bondage. We have made our position known to our people in Nigeria. The reason for seeking self-determination as the best means and alternative is to save the nation from impending implosion.
“The feedback we are getting from the Diaspora indicates that Yoruba in Nigeria is ready for the rally and the campaign for the actualisation of Oodua Republic. The spirit of Yoruba race is high and we are monitoring unfolding events and I am sure we shall achieve the best for our race”
Zacchaeus said “Nigeria has failed. The country is falling by the day. Former President Olusegun Obasanjo said it recently, Prof.Wole Soyinka also said it, even the Aare Onakakanfo of Yoruba land, Iba Gani Adams, has raised the alarm severally that the country is drifting”,
“Nigeria will be 60 by October and the truth is that there is nothing to show for it. Nothing except senseless killings, kidnapping, corruption, election rigging occasioned by bad leadership. So, we need to change the narratives. We need to fight against this lawlessness and huge misappropriation of national fortune.”
Comrade Zacheaus through the statement urged Yoruba sons and daughters in Nigeria to brace up to the reality of the situation on the ground, stressing that the coming event will surely change the narratives of the country.
