Mr Saleh Hassan, National Chairman of Miyetti Allah, has stated that despite the education of the Yoruba people, they remain politically primitive.

Saleh made this known while discussing the issue of Amotekun on Channels TV.

For us - Amotekun - that is the Yoruba tribal militia. It is one of the greatest threats of democracy we have now in place because you cannot empower an ethnic militia that has a history of violent crime because essentially what you have as Amotekun is OPC, Oodua Peoples Congress that has a history of heinous crimes and killings and the proponents of Amotekun has not hidden who their targets are”, he said.

On if he was trying to blackmail the Southwest when he said they should scrap Amotekun or forget the 2023 presidency, Saleh said:

“It is not a blackmail. Unfortunately with strong apologies to my South West friends, despite the education of the Yoruba people, they still remain the most primitive in terms of political culture. They are not tolerant to opposition”.
