In a related development, the Yoruba leaders have demanded equal treatment of the nation and urged President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure that Nigeria is brought back to true federalism to avert a crisis like the one witnessed during the EndSARS protest.

While backing the growing call for restructuring, they also concluded that corporate existence is the only way to foster the unity of Nigeria and explore its diversity for greatness.
