President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday met with traditional rulers from the Southwest geo-political zones of the country.
The monarchs were led by the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi at the State House
It was recalled that the Ooni had earlier in July met with Buhari on behalf of royal fathers in the South-West in Abuja to make a case for improved security across the region.
Ooni noted that the escalating security challenges in the country had led to some persons and groups beating the drums of war.
He clarified that it was not the position of the Yoruba, adding that the region was only interested in improved security of lives and properties.
Everybody is beating the drum of war; we don’t want war. Who can stand war? We want something better for our youths. We should better use them (youths) for something good other than shouting war and anarchy. We don’t want that”.
Ooni, however, told the President to flush out the bad eggs among the Fulani herdsmen, adding that the task was not impossible if Federal Government collaborated with all stakeholders including the traditional rulers in the country.
To this, he assured of the president’s commitment to secure all in the country.
