The Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, Chief Gani Adams, has commended Governor Seyi Makinde for the strategic security plans put in place to safeguard the lives and properties of the people of Oyo State.
The Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, who appeared on a live programme at the Broadcasting Corporation of Oyo State(BCOS) on Thursday, call for such strategic security measures to be implemented at the national level.
He also has called for Nigeria to return to the regional system of government and for the total restructuring of the nation. He warned that failure to restructure Nigeria will lead to the ultimate damnation of the country.
Iba Gani Adams lamented the level of insecurity particularly the spate of kidnapping and herdsmen crisis.
He said’ “Kidnaping is now all over Nigeria, nowhere is secured”
He further condemned the proposed Ruga Settlement by the federal government and regarded it as a plot to take over Yoruba land.
Iba Gani Adams lamented that the Yoruba people have become docile in the aspect of activism and call for better governance and modalities of operations.
He said, “Yoruba’s need a central figure or leader that will be respected by all in order to have a united front.”
“After the likes of Awolowo and Ajasin the Yoruba people have become more reactionary than visionary in politics and the overall activism for a better nation.
“When you look at the recent revolutionary call by Sowore, the loudest voice of condemnation came from the Yoruba and this should not be so.”
He, however, added that the Yoruba people are peace lovers and that Yoruba’s detest trouble and trouble makers.
Iba Gani Adams further lamented that the Yoruba’s are not preserving their rich cultural heritage.
“It is disheartening that Yoruba’s believe so much in foreign cultures at the detriment of their rich cultural heritage. An edifice that should become monumental is being destroyed by leaders in the name of modernisation.” He said.
The Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, who arrived BCOS about 10am Thursday morning was received by the management staff of the BCOS led by the Executive Chairman of the BCOS, Prince Dotun Oyelade.
