Gani Adams urges FG to do the needful on carnage, insecurity
The Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams, yesterday, said the spate of insecurity in the country would continue until the Federal Government is ready to do the right things.
He stated this in a statement signed by his media aide, Kehinde Aderemi.
Adams, who spoke against the backdrop of killings and insecurity in South-East, said: “The carnage and insecurity did not start today, and it would not stop until the Federal Government does the needful. The Federal Government has failed in its efforts to secure the country. In a developed society, solutions to such killings are handled in the most holistic manner.
“Those clamouring for the Yoruba nation have genuine reasons for their actions. And until the Federal Government listens and listens very well and also do the needful, the killings will continue unabated as we have been witnessing in the eastern part of Nigeria.”
Besides, Adams has thrown his weight behind the ban on open grazing. Speaking at the 2021 edition of Wealth Festival (Odun Aje) at Orile-Agege, Lagos, he noted that in the last few years, Nigeria has been in the news mostly for the wrong reasons.
He said the Federal Government had failed to unravel the mystery behind the various security challenges in the country, adding that by going against the wishes of the citizens, 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 beyond everybody’s imagination. We are in the 21st century and the open grazing practice is of old,” he said.
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.”
He urged the need to tackle the menace, using the traditional approach and global template, saying: “That is why we advocate self-determination. We cannot continue to deceive ourselves as a race. The Yoruba are tired of this failed federation and we have graduated from restructuring to seeking self-determination.”
