The Oba of Lagos, Oba Akiolu has stated that the problem with the state of Lagos is insecurity, security and unemployment.
In addition, he affirmed that it is necessary to restructure the country’s security architecture.
He said: “The problem we have in Lagos is security and unemployment. You have to take care of the young. What happened is a pure case of security breach. The whole system needs a reform.
“There is so much concentration of power in the center. The President should help in the process of rebuilding the affected states.
Oba Akinolu said that the culture of our ancestors has been neglected. The gods are angry. Lagos should be granted a special status. “
Furthermore, speaking, Alawite from Ilawe, Oba Alabi, said: “Taking a look at the regrettable destruction of lives and property, the #EndSARs protest was hijacked by thugs in which Lagos suffered the most devastation.
“The moment the thugs realized that the police had been overwhelmed, they seized control of the state and unleashed chaos.
“This must end, the IG must deploy its men to the streets. The bullies’ party is over.
“It is time for the police to take over and also the police must be adequately equipped. The rampant attack on Akiolu’s palace is disgraceful. It is troubling to commit such a heinous and sacrilegious crime.
“Security in the palaces must be reinforced because every time an incident like this arises, after the government, the monarchs are the next target.
“The attack on Lagos and other states was a calculated attempt to decimate the economy of the Southwest region. Otherwise, why would NPA and other public and private institutions attack?
“Now is the time to have the Southwest agenda to renovate the structures that took place in the Southwest. FG should help states restore normalcy to the Southwest. “
Furthermore, Olu de Ilaro, Oba Olugbenle, said: “The issue of insecurity has been with us for years. At the 2014 National Conference we spent weeks talking about Nigeria. The report has not been reviewed. Nothing prevents the current government from implementing the recommendations.
“The president’s COS was in the conspiracy and played crucial roles and, fortunately, it is now in government. Let’s drop politics and look at the good sides of the 2014 conspiracy and implement them.
“There is so much power in Abuja. It is time to have a true federalism. Let FG reconsider its position on border closures, most of our young people have lost their jobs. “
