Yoruba socio-cultural group, Oodua Consultative Forum (OCF), has pledged to contribute its quota toward peaceful coexistence among other ethnic groups in Nigeria.
The Yoruba group, led by its National President, Mr Oyemade Adebisi, made this known in Abeokuta on Saturday during a visit to the Alake and Paramount ruler of Egba Land, Oba Adedotun Gbadebo.
The Yoruba non-governmental organisation registered by Cooperate Affairs Commission, emphasised its readiness to contribute to the growth and development of Nigeria and securing the Yoruba race.
Adebisi said that in view of that disposition, the group would go round schools to promote the Yoruba culture and tradition among the youth and that the group was ready to cooperate with all tiers of government while ensuring the harmonious and peaceful relationship with other socio-cultural groups in the country.
“Oodua Consultative Forum is a socio-cultural organisation` fighting` for the restoration of the Yoruba culture, tradition, economy, and political dignity. “The group also promotes the spirit of unity, equity, peace, and progress among ethnic groups in Nigeria and is out to also engender one indivisible Nigeria,” Adebisi said.
