Mrs. Awolowo made the statement in Ogun State, South West Nigeria.

The wife of the late Premier of the Western Region and Chairperson of the Yoruba Unity Forum (YUF), Hanna Awolowo, on Thursday cautioned politicians from the South-West to be wary of any alliance in the forthcoming 2015 general elections.

She gave the warning in her opening remark at meeting of the Yoruba Unity Forum (YUF) held at the Efunyela Hall in Ikenne, the home of the Awolowos.

Mrs. Awolowo also cautioned the politicians to guide against acts that are capable of causing disunity in their preparation for the poll, and be wary of all forms of deceit in their political re-alignment.

She also emphasised that politicians from the geo -political zone should guide against disagreements over their choices for 2015.

According to her, politicians from the region must make a choice that will be beneficial to the race.

“Yoruba politicians must not walk astray by 2015; the 2011 journey which we all embarked upon has clearly disappointed us. We were marginalised when it was time for us all to enjoy; we should all learn,” she said.
