A women’s socio-cultural group, Oodua Women in Action (OWA) has said that it was in support of restructuring and other peaceful measures aimed at developing the country to an enviable standard devoid of avoidable challenges.

Through a statement released to newsmen on Monday, Adeniji called on current Nigerian leaders to muster courage and political will needed to set Nigeria on the path of justice, equity, and fairness as the country attains Diamond age.
According to her, the Federal and State governments need to priorities issues bordering on national security challenges and economy, stressing that t if the deplorable situation of the internal security was not curbed, the country may be heading to irreparable calamity.
“On the agitation for self-determination, restructuring, and outright secession Oodua Women in Action supports self-determination that will encourage competitive spirit in the country but counsels peaceful approach to whatever actions that will engender progress and development in all the nations which currently constitute federating units in the country.
“Nothing should be done that will heat up the polity or lead to avoidable bloodletting. There has been too much bloodshed in recent times and this should stop as we begin our 61st year as an independent nation,” the statement read.
