Members of the Yoruba community in Kano State have appealed to Yoruba leaders and leaders of thought in the country to engage President Bola Tinubu for a possible political settlement of the Kano political logjam.

He said, “We are using this platform to call on our leading Obas and leaders to come to our assistance by engaging President Bola Tinubu on the political situation in Kano.

“The average man already believes that the judiciary has been interfered with. We are calling on our fathers, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo and the Oni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, to intervene without further delay.

“We are also calling on Oba of Lagos, Alake of Egba, Awujale of Ijebuland, Olubadan of Ibadan and other and other Yoruba leading lights to come to our aid as we won’t find it easy if the situation degenerates further as we actually expect it would.

“The people here will believe that they were cheated by a Yoruba President. That’s the word going around now. A stitch in time, they say saves nine,” the Yoruba community said.
