Oyo State Traditional worshippers Renew Call for Buhari to Change Service Chiefs

The Oyo State branch of Traditional Worshippers Association has beckoned on President Buhari to take the action of replacing all service Chiefs in the nation.

This call which was made yesterday January 25, was contained in a statement signed by the body’s state chairman and secretary, Surveyor Dasola Fadiran Adefabi and Dr Fayemi Fatunde Fakayode respectively, after their meeting at Ose-Meji Temple, Oja-Oba, Ibadan.

The body said that this was essential in order to allow for new ideas in security strategies in the nation. The worshippers, however, called on Governor Makinde and the FG to accept their blames in the lacuna created over insecurity in Ibarapa land and Oke-Ogun, as well as killings, kidnappings and terrorism in other parts of Nigeria and asked for a change of strategy.

They enjoined their members to organise special prayers for the success of the state administration and the Federal Government to conquer the battle against criminality.

“It is important that all hands must be on deck to prevent the impending ethnic crisis in Oyo State and the nation at large as we call on the federal government and Oyo State government, under the leadership of governor Seyi Makinde to change strategy in their approach to the issue of security”.

“We want to reignite the call on Buhari to change the old guards in the affairs of security in Nigeria as it is evident that they have no new tactics to combat the present security situation in our country, we cannot maintain the same approach to tackle a recurring security problem”.

“Let there be new models of security strategies by new individuals that would be willing to make impacts, the security situation in our country has shown that those handling the affairs are not capable”.

“We call on governor Seyi Makinde to urgently convene an inter-religious/Ethnic Committee that will have representatives of the traditional rulers, Christians, Muslims and traditional religious leaders and the security agencies as members, this will help nip so many security challenges in the bud and also make governance easy for his administration”.

“As a religious body, part of our roles is to put the nation in our prayers, we, therefore, implore traditional worshippers in various shrines and temples across the State to organize prayers for this State and the nation at large, the Muslims and Christians are also urged to do same so that we can all have a peaceful State for business and other developmental strides,” the statement read.
