The Federal Government has started consultations with a number of leading traditional rulers in a bid to improve security in local communities while rearranging the security architecture nationwide.

This was disclosed by the Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo who held separate meetings with the Akarigbo of Remoland, Oba Babatunde Ajayi, and theAwujale of Ijebuland, Oba Sikiru Adetona, at the instance of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Professor Osinbajo stated that the FG will collaborate with states to maintain law and order across the country.

“As you know, there are many significant concerns all over the country; and of course there are concerns also in the South-West.

“So, I’m here on the instruction of Mr President to consult with the Kayibesi, Governor Dapo Abiodun and other stakeholders on what to do to beef up security, and to generally improve the security architecture.

“One of the things that Mr. President has spoken about is the role of traditional rulers in maintaining peace and security in their own locality. As you know, they are the closest to the grassroots, to their communities.”

After meeting the Awujale, the VP said, “of course, you know that the Kabiyesi is not just the traditional ruler, but also a very important part of the government. That’s why we are here to speak with him and to agree on a few modalities for beefing up security, ensuring that we are fully conscious of all that is going on around us, and just to be sure that peace and security reigns here and across the country.

“There are some who might want to cause instability and difficulties, but we are very confident that God helping us, working together as a nation, we will be able to overcome all our problems and set our country on the path of peace and prosperity,” he noted.

He noted that the state governor, Dapo Abiodun, was committed “to ensure that there is peace and security, and that everyone who lives in all our neighbourhoods, localities and communities live in peace with each other and that we maintain a high level of security.”
