The Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Gani Adams has called on the Federal Government to use traditional methods to tackle the worsening insecurity in the country.
Gani Adams made this call on Monday during the 2021 edition of Wealth Festival (Odun Aje), held at Power line, Orile Agege in Lagos.
He berated the federal government on the current situation of security nationwide, noting that the current administration has only created, disunity, anarchy, instability and lack of cohesion among the various tribes and ethnic groups in the country.
Adams also commended Southern Governors for their ban on open grazing which he claimed “has created more challenges than it could solve”.
“I commend the Southern governors for standing firm against open grazing. We totally support their position on the ban of open grazing in the south.
“For example, most times, I feel sad at the spate of insecurity across the southwest. In the South-West, kidnapping, banditry, and killings have since been the bane of our region.
“We are in the 21st century and the open grazing practice is of old. It has created more challenges than it could solve and I wonder why the Federal Government is bent on going against the wishes of the people.
“In the last few years, Nigeria has been in the news mostly for the wrong reasons. The spate of insecurity in the country is alarming and it is increasing by the day. I think we need to tackle the menace, using the traditional approach and global template.
“The Federal Government has failed to unravel the mystery behind the various security challenges in the country. And by going against the wishes of the citizens, the Federal Government has only created disunity, anarchy, instability, and lack of cohesion among the various tribes and ethnic groups in the country. Things have gone wrong and it is beyond everybody’s imagination.”
KanyiDaily recalls that President Buhari had pleaded with Nigerians to show more understanding on the current security situation in the country.
