The Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, Chief Gani Adams has recognized
Governor Seyi Makinde for the vital security plans set up to protect the lives and properties of the individuals of Oyo State.
Gani Adams who visted Ibadan on the 8th of August, 2019, while talking on a live radio program in Ibadan called for such strategic safety efforts to be executed at the national level.
He also called for Nigeria to return to the regional system of government and for the total restructuring of the nation, warning that failure to restructure Nigeria will lead to the ultimate damnation of the country.
He lamented the level of insecurity particularly the spate of kidnapping and herdsmen crisis, saying “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.
Adams who lamented that the Yoruba people have become docile in the aspect of activism and called for better governance and modalities of operations, saying “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 said.
He, however, added that the Yoruba people were peace lovers and that Yoruba’s detest trouble and trouble makers.
While lamenting that the Yoruba’s were not preserving their rich cultural heritage, Adams said “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.
