Oduduwa Republic: Promoters Unveil new Currency and Details as Nigerians React


A separatist group in the southwest agitating for Oduduwa Republic has launched a new currency known as ‘Fadaka’ which means silver in an announcement on their social media handle on Sunday.

Leakblast.com gathered that the group posted the image of the proposed currency on its Twitter handle @OduduwaRepublic, on Sunday, March 21.

The released currency under ‘Ooduwa Reserve Bank’ which is a pilot design has most symbols of Yoruba cultural heritage inscribed on it.

The banknote made available includes 20 Odua currency which looks identical to the N200 note.

Some twitter users reacted to the announcement below:

Olushola Olufolabi, @olushola_shola said:

“I am for oduduwa when it’s time comes but l will NEVER agree to nation image of an idol on currency, flag or anywhere official. No Christian or Muslim should agree to that either. We go with colours not symbols.”

Al Addy Olatunde, @Al_Addy1 said:

“If Oduduwa Nation will be an independent nation, there’re should be no words like “twenty, reserved and bank” on her currency… The ONLY official language should be STRICTLY Yoruba language.”

Ade, @the_Adebimpe_ said:

“Would be really happy if this can be achieved, to live in a land where my life is more valuable than that of a cow at least with people I can call family.”

“Notable women like Fela’s mother should be on our note. We will forget all that happened in the military era..we understand that was under Nigeria..Even baba fela himself deserves to be on a note..it will bring out d spirit of patriotism in us seeing the face on the note every day.”

Meanwhile, Leakblast reported that Pa Reuben Fasoranti has stepped down as the national leader of the pan-Yoruba socio-political association, Afenifere. The 95-year-old who became a leader of the group in 2008, cited old age as the major reason for his decision to leave the position.
The elder statesman on Tuesday, March 16, named the deputy leader of the group, Chief Ayo Adebanjo, as the acting national leader. In a related development, the Defence Headquarters, DHQ dismissed claims by a Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo also known as Sunday Igboho that some Nigerian military personnel were on a spying mission at his residence before they were apprehended.
In a statement sent to Leakblast.com on Saturday, March 20 by its acting director, Defence Media Operations, the DHQ said it has no interest in dragging or joining issues with Igboho or his associates.
