The monarchs of the Southwest have expressed disappointment at the way politicians have turned politics into a money-induced enterprise at the expense of the interest of the young, leading to massive unemployment and insecurity in the country.

They claimed that the high unemployment rate among youth sparked the #EndSARS protest.

The Ooni of Ife, Alaafin of Oyo and others blamed governments and politicians for the #EndSARS protests, due to the neglect of traditional institutions in government.

“The governors have taken the right steps with this meeting. However, they have been very far from us monarchs. You should not wait until the election period to contact us. This type of meeting should be held regularly.

“We know the good and the bad in our communities, but we are underutilized,” said Ife’s Ooni.

Oyo’s Alaafin, Oba Adeyemi, said the destruction has put the region in a complex and critical situation. “It is a complex and complicated matter. Our children are unemployed and many are hungry and angry.

The problems are too much for the states. The states are not independent. The structure we manage in Nigeria cannot allow state governors to do much for their states, there is a need for a devolution of power, ”he said.

The Olugbo of Ugbo, Oba Obateru, urged the Inspector General of Police to conduct a detailed investigation into the incident and identify those responsible for the destruction.

“What happened is beyond the EndSARS protests. Discover the people behind them. This is the time to get closer to the monarchs. If you don’t treat this matter well, the young people will come out again. “

The Oba of Lagos, Oba Akiolu said: “The truth is very bitter. Most of the problems are caused by politicians. The power with the Federal Government is too much. It is necessary to restructure the country’s security architecture.
