The Yoruba social cultural group, Afenifere Renewal Group (ARG) has hailed South West Governors over regional integration, congratulating the Lagos State Governor, Akinwumi Ambode, on the formal admittance of Lagos State into the O’dua Investment family.
Afenifere in a statement issued by its Publicity Secretary Kunle Famoriyo also congratulated the DAWN Commission for successfully midwifing the process, saying “it is a precious baby we have been expecting for some time.
“This feat is another milestone on the road to achieving the vision that birthed DAWN Commission, which is to project regional integration as the most sustainable and efficient socioeconomic development paradigm for Nigeria.
“It is also a signpost towards the mission to which ARG has committed itself in the last ten years to engender a society where there is ‘freedom for all and life more abundant.
“Our special gratitude, therefore, goes to the governors of the six Southwest States for believing in this vision and providing the leadership that Yoruba people need at this time.
“We thank all well-meaning Yoruba sons and daughters who have given of their time, resources, and network to support this vision.”
They also called on others to come on board, noting that “the race towards Regional Integration has just started, even though we are closer than we were before now.”
