ACOALITION of Yoruba groups in the Diaspora, under the aegis of Yoruba One Voice ( YOV), has declared that no amount of intimidati­on or harassment will make agitators to back off the campaign for selfdeterm­ination for Oodua Republic.

The coalition stated that Yoruba people all over the world would not relent in their irrevocabl­e campaign for self- determinat­ion.

The group made the declaratio­n in an eight- point communique it issued at the end of the webinar with the theme, “The State of Yoruba Nation,” organised to mark its one year anniversar­y.

While reading the communique, YOV Secretary General, Dr. Sina Okanlomo, urged an immediate referendum to be supervised by the United Nations ( UN) on the right to self- determinat­ion by Yoruba Nation.
