The Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi 111, has taken a swipe at the Federal Government for its handling of the security situation in the country.
The First Class monarch also condemned the lopsided treatment of Nigerians based on their area of origin, calling for the restructuring of the country.
Oba Adeyemi spoke on Monday when he received in his palace in Oyo town, a group, South West Agenda for Asiwaju (SWAGA 2023), which is canvassing for the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress and a former Governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, to emerge as the country’s president in 2023
The revered traditional ruler, who spoke in response to the speeches of leaders of the group, said: “I am very happy that you came.
“Joint arrangement is the best in any venture.
“Covenant is part of the law of retributive justice.
“In Nigeria, we forget so easily.
“Bandits have been killing people in the North Eastern part of Nigeria.
“We were there recently and bullets were flying over the roof where we stayed.
“We said we have defeated the Boko Haram technically, yet few days ago, many people were tied down and slaughtered like goats.
“This is unacceptable.
“To many people, this your move may be seen to be too early, but one thing is that Nigerians forget too easily.
“There must be federal system of government, but there is no sincerity in the politics of Nigeria and this is the reason we are in trouble.
“There is lack of faith in the arrangement of this country.
“We have not been fortunate with the kind of leadership we have been having.
“We have continued to make concession.
