Elder statesman and All Progressive Congress (APC)'s chieftain ,Chief Bisi Akande, has announced his intention to meet Yoruba Leaders over the Presidential ambition of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.


Speaking on Sunday night at his Ila Orangun, Osun State country home when the central committee of the *South West Agenda for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu (SWAGA)*, led by its chairman, Senator Dayo Adeyeye  paid him a courtesy call, Chief Akande commended the efforts of the group and saluted their selflessness in tasking themselves to mobilize and travel round the sub-region on such a patriotic cause. He prayed for the delegation  and assured the members of his total commitment.

As a first step, he pledged to support their efforts by embarking on visits to all Yoruba elders and further assist them propagate the desirability, suitability and viability of Tinubu's candidature in the 2023 Presidential race.


The former governor of Osun State noted that, by the clear understanding in existence, it was the turn of a Yoruba man to be at the helm of affairs in the country; and that upon critical introspection as an experienced and active political leader in the region, he had no doubt that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu was the best, strongest and most electable prospect.


In the SWAGA Entourage were   co-ordinators for all the South West states namely ,Lagos,Oyo,Osun, Ekiti, Lagos and others.


The group later visited the Governor of the State of Osun,  Mr.Adegboyega Oyetola, who also commended their efforts and counselled them to maintain the momentum of their well- organised mission and vision.

Rights activist ADENIYI AKANNI has called for the immediate sack of the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed.

Adeniyi made the call in a press conference addressed by various human right foundations


According to the media luminary while the Minister is busy chasing shadows, Nigeria cultural values suffer and are receding with every minute that passes.


Adeniyi called on the Federal Government to establish a full-fledged ministry to see to the promotion and preservation of culture as enshrined in the Constitution.


He also pointed out that culture affects all aspects of human life, adding that cultural rights illustrate the indivisibility and interdependence of all rights in a more comprehensive fashion than any other rights.


Speaking further, the voiceferous human right activist  pointed to the recent Amnesty International’s goals published on its Facebook account, which includes; making same-sex relations legal in all countries.


Amnesty had also vowed to make abortion legal in all countries and abolishing the death penalty in all countries and Adeniyi expressed concerns over these moves, insisting that they are totally against the cultural rights and values of Nigerians.


The courageous pen luminary queried what it described as a deliberate struggle by Amnesty International to rebrand a known fault vis-à-vis the African value on the sanctity of life and the sacredness of marital union culminating in the decimation of a fundamental truth.


“Through the African eyes, homosexuality is a high pedestal immoral act, best imagined or possibly practised exclusively by animals. Even, it is rated an inch higher than incest between close relatives, such as brothers and sisters, sons and mothers or daughters and fathers. Myriads of such sex misconducts are categorized among the taboos of the land and must be avoided with total disdain,”he explained.


The strong censorship is to allow decency, respect and sex morality to thrive as necessary ingredients for the survival of the ideal African society.


Adeniyi reminded Amnesty International that gay marriage is a crime in Nigeria following Senate and the House of Representatives passage of the Anti-Gay Bill in December 2011 and July 2013 respectively with a unanimous vote which was signed into law on December 30th 2013 by then President Goodluck Jonathan criminalizing gay marriage and related practices with fourteen years imprisonment for defaulters.


He said, “It is our belief that Amnesty International which has authorised many damning reports against the Nigeria Army is not a fit and proper organisation to do so given their now advertised notorious trilogy of anti-African cultural objectives such as promoting recognition of same-sex relationships and promoting the abortion rights.


Adeniyi also noted that Nigerian cultures and traditions are not at variance with international human rights laws while calling on members of Annesty International to denounce such moves.


The media luminary further called on the Nigerian National Assembly to pass a resolution condemning objectives such as those of Annesty International from the root.


“The struggle for same-sex relationship and abortion is really a much-strayed politics that has no identity in the African cultural and religious landscape. No true African culture can recognize or accept the strange habit of sniffing for sexual pleasure in the anus of a fellow human.


“Even if the anal sex lifestyle is a western conspiracy for global birth control, it is seriously stepping on the toes of African core values and the belief system of most religions of the world. After all, birth control is a matter of self-discipline by a married couple, which can better be achieved through gradual family education.”


Speaking further, he added, “Our culture is under severe attack. We need a cultural ministry that will be headed by tested and trusted hands. We have professors of culture. We have professors in different languages and cultures.


“We need a full ministry of culture. I don’t even know who occupies that position. The last time we heard about him was when he jumped up and approved the demolition of a restaurant in Kaduna , according to them, for an attempted adultery.


“That was the only time we heard that kind of person talking which means he doesn’t even know his job. We can have a ministry of culture that its job will focus on the Internet countering this kind of application by Amnesty International.


“I’m sure the minister doesn’t even know about Amnesty International’s move when he’s going about attacking AIT. We need a ministry headed by somebody who is interested in protecting our culture.


“We need a 21st-century ministry culture that will put our culture on the Internet. I am calling for the dismissal of Lai Mohammed as the minister of culture. He’s unfit.


“We need a fit Nigerian to handle that position because he has not done anything to defend our culture. I call for the total overhaul of the cultural sector.”
