Afenifere in a communique signed by its National Publicity Secretary,Comrade Jare Ajayi resolves as follows: “The situation in the country is  in a more decisive manner. 

“In view of the seriousness of the situation and considering the fact that the present administration under President Muhammadu Buhari has shown that it is incapable and unwilling to tackle the identified problems, Afenifere hereby strongly advocate for a Government of National Unity. 

“Such a Government of National Unity is to tackle the insecurity problems and midwife a new Democratic Government.

“ Once again, Afenifere is reiterating its position that Restructuring of the Nigerian State must take place before the much vaunted Elections.

“We also recommend that  States that are ready must be allowed to establish their own Police Forces.  The performance of Amotekun Security Network in the South West in conjunction with the Nigerian Police has shown clearly that all the criticisms against State Police are unfounded and self serving.”

The meeting deliberated extensively on various issues pertaining to the Nigeria nation especially in the way they affect the Yorubas.

After extensive deliberations, Afenifere resolved as follow:

A. The situation in the country is  in a more decisive manner.

B. Such a Government of National Unity is to tackle the insecurity problems and midwife a new Democratic Government.

C. Once again, Afenifere is reiterating its position that Restructuring of the Nigerian State must take place before the much vaunted Elections.

D.  We also recommend that  States that are ready must be allowed to establish their own Police Forces.  The performance of Amotekun Security Network in the South West in conjunction with the Nigerian Police has shown clearly that all the criticisms against State Police are unfounded and self serving.
