South West governors within the nation have disowned the 48- hour ultimatum given to some Nigeria nationals particularly the lgbo to give up the area.

The chairman of the South West Governors Discussion board and Ondo State governor, Rotimi Akeredolu mentioned this in Akure in response to the ultimatum purportedly issued by one Adeyinka Grandson.
Akeredolu mentioned that “we strongly condemn the puerile, divisive and revisionist video by one inconsequential particular person by title Adeyinka Grandson going viral that has given the Igbos an ultimatum to go away the South West Area.
“This video is not only mindless. It’s a product of an agent of destabilization who doesn’t even imply nicely for Yorubaland.
“lgbos, like each different tribe within the South West are free to go about their respectable companies. They’re enjoined to disregard the ultimatum.”
The Pan Yoruba socio- political group, Afenifere had equally disowned the 48-hour ultimatum given to the lgbos to give up Yorubaland.
A press release issued Saturday evening in Akure by its nationwide chief, Pa Reuben Fasoranti mentioned that the ultimatum purportedly issued by one Adeyinka Grandson was not the group’s initiative.
The assertion was entitled” Give up Yorubaland Ultimatum: Not Afenifere Initiative
It learn:” Our consideration has been drawn to a WhatsApp video now going viral purportedly issued by one Adeyinka Grandson or his representatives giving a 48-hour ultimatum ending on Sunday October 25 to some Nigerian nationals particularly the lgbo to give up Yorubaland.
“Most embarrassing to me because the Afenifere chief was that the younger man who made the announcement kicked off with the well-known tune of Afenifere anthem, thus giving the impression that this was an Afenifere initiative.
” That is to say that we have no idea something in regards to the give up order or are we in any manner related with the issuance or the initiators.”
Pa Fasoranti mentioned that “In the interim, along with our different releases, allow us to all keep peace.”
