A South-West group, The Oduduwa United Frontiers, on Thursday expressed concerns about an alleged sustained quiet war of attrition launched by the All Progressives Congress (APC) leaders from the South-west against the northern compatriots over political appointments.

It said though the expectation was that the Yorubas would be adequately compensated considering the way the Yorubas fought against the odds to bring this government into power, this was not to be as the region was forced to confront the reality that the Yorubas are one of the many ethnic configurations in the country.

The National President of the group, Kolawole Abe, stated this while addressing journalists in Lagos, where he‎ decried what he said was a campaign of calumny against aides of President Muhammadu Buhari that are emanating from the South-west allied coalition of Civil Society groups and other eminent Nigerians, saying it is totally unacceptable.

According to him, “If this is allowed to continue, no region in the country will again trust the Yorubas enough to want to enter into any political arrangement with the South West in the foreseeable future.”
