MORO INDIGENES KICK AGAINST INCLUSION IN ILORIN EMIRATE PALLIATIVES DISTRIBUTION
Sequel to the announcement by the Ilorin Emirate to distribute coronavirus palliatives to communities in the emirate, the proposed list which includes Moro LGA, the entire people of Moro LGA have warned the Ilorin Emirate not to extend the administration of the palliatives to the people of Moro Local Government Area.
A press statement signed by the President, Moro Students’ Union, Comrade Abiodun Adeleye Adesina, stated that any act of palliative measure by the Ilorin emirate to Moro for cushioning the effect of coronavirus is a bait to accent the torrents of injustice and marginalization propagated and being nurtured by the Ilorin emirate oppressors to make the people concerned remain oppressed.
Abiodun, who decried the decision to extend the palliatives to Moro, explained that Moro people are undiluted Yoruba who have no link with the Fulani emirate structure, adding that the Local Government is only comfortable with the Yoruba cultural practice.
The statement further said that the Ilorin emirate ought to have ceased this game of oppression unleashed on to the people of Moro, imploring all the targeted recipients of the palliatives in the Local Government not to collect the items, saying that the scheme is a strategy to lure them to eternal slavery.
While appealing to the Executive Governor of Kwara State, Mallam AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, to expedite the grading and upgrading of traditional rulers in the Local Government Area, Adesina commended the Governor for demonstrating fairness and justice to all Kwarans and applauded the Governor’s efforts in tackling the spread of the deadly coronavirus.
The statement also called on the Governor to use his good office to stop all the mechanisms being used by the Ilorin Emirate to keep the people of Moro in the shackles of slavery and oppression.
Comrade Adesina then praised the Ohoro of Shao, HRH Oba (Dr.) Bamidele Adegbite, the Oba of Jebba, HRH Alhaji Abdulquadir Adebara, and the other traditional rulers in the Local Government Area for ensuring that their people are complying with the government’s lockdown order, praying that the nation and the world will soon overcome the plague of Coronavirus.
Signed by the president: Adesina, Adeleye Abiodun.
Through the Sec. Gen.:
Abdulasalam, Ibraheem Kehinde.
