Bankole calls Yoruba nation agitators charlatans

 Bankole calls Yoruba nation agitators charlatans

Second Republic politician and a prominent Egba business tycoon, Chief Alani Bankole, has slammed agitators of the Yoruba nation.

He described them as “charlatans and exploiters.”

Bankole said the separatists are only using agitations to exploit unsuspecting people to make money.

The octogenarian, who is the father of former Speaker Dimeji Bankole, spoke yesterday at his Oluwo home in Abeokuta, Ogun State, while celebrating his 80th birthday.

He dismissed the Yoruba nation agitators, saying “they are using what they are doing to exploit people to make money.”

He reminded the agitators that even Afenifere, the pan-Yoruba socio- cultural group, had opposed calls for break-up of the country.

Pa Bankola said Afenifere was only agitating for restructuring to allow the federating units control their resources.

He said: “Who are the people leading Yoruba nation or the break away? The Afenifere people have openly said they did not support breaking up. They are calling for restructuring to give different federating units authority to take care of their resources, which is quite different from breaking away.
