Governors from the southwest region have rejected and condemned the quit notice issued to other ethnic groups in Yoruba land.

The governors consequently urged the Yoruba and non-Yoruba residents in the southwest to disregard the threat of violence issued in the video.

Akeredolu said:

“The element (Adeyinka Grandson) has no authority to speak on our behalf. We call on our brothers who are non-Yoruba natives to go about their normal businesses without fear. Southwest region will continue to be made habitable for all.”

In a related development, governors of the southwest states alleged that widespread violence witnessed in Lagos during the recent protests against police brutality may have been sponsored.
