Elder statesman, Chief Olu Falae, has said Yorubaland is the glue holding Nigeria together and has invested a lot to maintain peace in the country.
Falae, a former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Minister of Finance, Director for Economic Planning, and Managing Director of a bank, spoke to Vanguard , in an interview, noting that when insecurity or crisis displaces Nigerians, they find solace in the South-West.
He described Yorubaland as “the refugee camp of Nigeria… where everybody is accepted and looked after.”
According to him, “we have invested, perhaps, more than most groups in Nigeria. To prove my point, if there is a crisis in the East today, where do people rush to? The South-West. If there is a crisis in the North, where will they run to? The South-West.
“This is the refugee camp of Nigeria. This is where everybody is welcome, accepted and looked after. That is the investment of peace we have been making from time immemorial.
