At this historic moment, then, we Yoruba people must send one united message to our political and society leaders and traditional rulers – namely, that they should exercise discipline and restraint, and give our men a fair chance to deliver their best in the new government and to bring some good back home to the Yoruba Southwest.
We believe that at the core of Remaking the West is the
urgent need to reform our social and ethical orientation,
recover our fading identity, turn Yoruba Language into a
robust piece of social technology and our conduit of
cooperation, rebuild internal consensus and regional
solidarity, harness the potency of our culture, and become,
once again, proud of our heritage.
