We have security outfits to secure South-West- Gani Adams


Aare Ona Kakanfo (generalissimo) of the Yoruba nation, Gani Adams, has declared that leaders of the South-West have brought all the relevant security outfits together to secure the region.

Mr Adams declared during his private visit to Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo that hunters, members of the Odua Peoples’ Congress (OPC) and the Agbekoya members have been tasked with the responsibility of ensuring the security of lives and properties in the region.

”We have more confidence to complement the effort of the community.

Mr Adams told reporters that his visit to Mr Makinde was on issues related to the security and economy of the South-West. Disclosing his previous meeting with the Ekiti governor, the Yoruba chief said that it is important that traditional leaders and chiefs interfere on the prevailing issues in the south-west especially insecurity.

”It is very important that we interfere on the prevailing issues within our region, especially that of security. What we are witnessing now is alien to our history. Yoruba nation has been in existence for more than 8,000 years, I mean the western region,” he said.

Mr Adams further reiterated the unity of key South-West leaders on the position that the entire region should be in peace and harmony. He also said that agriculture was a major part of his discussion with the two governors and that the governors already had plans and strategies in place.

”We had a fruitful meeting. I can tell you that we are on the same page that Oyo State and the entire South-West should be in peace and harmony.

”The issue of agriculture was also part of our discussion. The two governors have told me their own parts and strategies, especially on the basis of private initiative. I want to assure that we too will play our own part to bring investors to partner with them,” Mr Adams said.
