Insecurity: Ibadan Traditional Council Urges Makinde to Adopt Multi-Dimensional Approach
Ibadan Traditional Council, comprising Olubadan-in-Council, the various Ibadan communities' monarchs, and heads of family compounds (Mogajis), has called on Governor Seyi Makinde to adopt a multi-dimensional approach in tackling the recent worsening security situation in the state capital.
Rising from a meeting at the Olubadan Palace, Oja'ba, Ibadan at the weekend, the traditional rulers contended that the governor has not done enough to stem the tide of insecurity.
The council members who took turn to speak one after the other during the meeting in the appraisal of the security situation argued that the governor has been running a one-man show.
The traditional rulers said they had made several attempts to interface with the governor on security and other issues affecting the state without luck noting that they have directed various community leaders in Ibadan to raise vigilante groups that would comprise youths in their areas of jurisdiction towards tackling the menace of insecurity.
The Otun Olubadan of Ibadanland, Senator Lekan Balogun, appealed to Governor Makinde to review his administration's approach in tackling security challenges, saying the council has nothing against the Governor.
According to the council, the issue of security needs a multi-dimensional approach and there's no way government alone can solve or handle it.
