THE Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, Tuesday, declared that until Nigeria returns to regionalism, the country’s progress remains a mirage. 

Oba Adeyemi said this at the opening ceremony of the Yoruba Studies Association of Nigeria, YOSAN, 50th anniversary held at the Otunba Subomi Balogun Conference, University of Ibadan, Oyo State.

He said the military incursion in Nigeria’s political space in 1966 had since remained the country’s albatross, adding that the southwest had, before the coup, enjoyed tremendous progress in all sectors.
