According to him, “I am confident that Yoruba Nation will be achieved soonest. Nothing will stop us from pursuing it to a logical conclusion.
“We are moving forward, there is no obstruction or destruction. It is the nature of the struggle. We are not scared at all.
“Yoruba Nation used to be prosperous and we need to go back to the good days. Yoruba people are law abiding, industrious, progressive and joyful. We deserve better than what we are experiencing now.
“But we are confident that with level of our diplomatic moves and consultation across the globe, Yoruba Nation will be achievable”.
At the event, Sunday Igboho and Professor Akintoye were presented with merit award in recognition of their supports for the actualisation of Yoruba Nation.

Amusat explained that slavery was abolished centuries ago but Nigeria is still experiencing internal colonization and slavery.
“We are saying this should not continue! We are also using the occasion to honor our two illustrious Yoruba sons
“The reality on ground does not point to the fact that 2023 elections would hold. Yoruba Self-Determination agenda is non-negotiable which is going to be achieved under the leadership of Prof. Banji Akintoye and his deputy Prof. Wale Adeniran.
“We will soon get to the promise land. That’s why the agitation has been peaceful which is the way to go. We are tired of this contraption called Nigeria. We just have to leave this place”.
