Governor Gboyega Oyetola of Osun state, on Sunday berated those calling for secession in Nigeria, describing the agitators as “unserious” people.

Oyetola, who featured on the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, Forum, said he believes in restructuring for more economic and political powers to get to state governments, rather than a total breakup of the country.

The governor said: “What I believe in is that for us to live together as a people, every unit of the enclave should have rights and responsibilities clearly defined.

“To me, restructuring does not mean that people should separate. Whoever is thinking along that line is not serious.

“We have come a long way, and it is togetherness that can make us get to where we are supposed to be within the space in the world.”
