The communique reads; "that a unanimous vote of confidence is hereby passed and reaffirmed the mandate given to Prof. Akintoye to lead the Yoruba people out of the contraption called Nigeria. That the conference held in Lagos by one Otunba Sade Olukoya was in bad taste and didn't have the support nor approval of the coalition.
"That we called on the leadership of Ilana Omo Oodua to expel Sade Olukoya with immediate effect. That Olukoya's name should be withdrawn from NINAS as Ilana Omoodua representative forthwith. That we endorse the dissolution of the executives mostly peopled by 5th columnists who recently resigned without shame.
"That we resolved to support the peaceful agitation under the leadership of Alana to liberate our people from bondage. That we commend the efforts of Prof Akintoye in his uncompromising resolve to free our illustrious son, Chief Sunday Igboho, from incarceration."
