“Miyetti Allah now owns the Presidency which they can gift to who they want and deny who they choose? What insolence? Cowherders threatening a people that produced the first lawyer in 1879 because a lawyer who doesn’t know the law is overreaching himself? Can they go and tell Yoruba in Benin Republic such idiocy?" Odumakin asked.

Further, stating that it is now a crime to inhabit in the same country with all, Odumakin said if Yoruba would be colonised, is it by those we should employ on their ranches

“To hell with their Presidency if the condition for it is that we must allow them to continue to waste the lives of our people," Odumakin said.
