A coalition of Yoruba self-determination groups, yesterday, said nothing meaningful and progressive can come out of the meeting between former Lagos State Governor Bola Tinubu and President Muhammadu Buhari. They emphasised that unless the country is restructured, anyone that becomes president in 2023 cannot bring any development.

Secretary-General of the groups, Dr. Steve Abioye, who stated this while speaking with The Guardian in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, said if Tinubu, Kayode Fayemi or Prof. Yemi Osinbajo becomes Nigerian president, the country would not change for good unless there is a people’s constitution.

“Nigerians, especially the Yoruba, who are kinsmen of Tinubu, don’t expect anything tangible, progressive, worthwhile and meaningful from Buhari/Tinubu’s meeting. This is because everything Tinubu thinks now is all about how he would become President in 2023.

“The status quo will remain except we have restructuring and people’s constitution. No president that comes out of this present arrangement that can bring development,” he said.

The coalition also rejoiced with the family of the late Yinka Odumakin over the delivery of a set of twins by his wife, Dr. Joe-Okei.
