The kingdoms of three of Oduduwa’s grandsons Sabe, Ketu and Popo were cordoned off by the French into what is now known by its colonial name , the Republic of Bènin. Nevertheless, the bonds between the Yoruba of Bènin and Nigeria remain unbroken, and this has been proved once again. According to the Ambassador to Nigeria in Bènin , Dr Lawrence Obisakin,
“ If not for the colonial separation, where you are standing now Cotonou use to be part of Oyo Empire and the capital was Oyo-Ile up to the shores of Ghana”
When is Nigeria going to do the same ? At least SW should use Youruba as Official Language, the east may use Igbo as Official language whil North Hausa.
English can be dropped to second Language.
Wha do you think people ?
