YORUBA MUST SUPPORT 'ONE MAN, ONE VOTE' CAMPAIGN –ARG

By NBF News

The forthcoming 2011 general elections would be a watershed towards ensuring the return of the country to a true federalism.

However, to achieve this, there is the need for the Yorubas to support the 'one man, one vote' campaign as being championed by President Goodluck Jonathan.

This was the submission of the National Chairman of Afenifere Renewal Group (ARG), Mr. Olawale Oshun in Ibadanyesterday.

Oshun, who spoke at the Cultural Centre, Ibadan, venue of a one-day summit organized by the group in collaboration with Key Yoruba Self-Determination Groups with the theme, 'Yoruba Values: A Re-awakening -Agenda for 2011 and Beyond,' said Yoruba must ensure that the 'one man, one vote' slogan worked so that correct representative of the Yoruba people would emerge to represent them.

He noted that if Yoruba could participate actively in the campaign, 'its correct representative would have the pleasure of working with other similarly elected representatives to restore hope, democracy and restructure governance and the constitution in a way that it would enable us to have confidence in whom we have been and restore all the abused values that used to give us pride.'
