Following alleged Herdsmen attack in different parts of South West of Nigeria, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Saturday held consultations with the Akarigbo of Remoland, Oba Babatunde Ajayi, as well as other monarchs in Ogun State, Newsflash247 reports.
Newsflash247 reports that Osinbajo was accompanied to the palace of Ajayi by Gov. Dapo Abiodun of Ogun.
The vice president, who fielded questions from newsmen after the meeting, said the meeting was on the instruction of President Muhammadu Buhari.
“As you know, there are many significant security concerns all over the country, and there are concerns also in the Southwest.
“So, I am here on the instruction of the president to consult with the traditional ruler, the governor and others on what to do to beef up security and to generally improve the security architecture.
“Of course, you know that Kabiyesi is not just a traditional ruler, but a very important part of the government.
“That is why we are here; to talk to him and agree on few modalities for beefing up security; and ensuring that we are fully conscious of all that is going on, just to be sure that peace and security reigns here and across the country.
“I think for all of us, the most important thing to realise is that we are one Nigeria; we are one country; we need to work together to ensure that it is peaceful, secured and happy for all of us,’’ he said.
He noted that Nigeria had the potential to give its citizens all they desired.
Osinbajo, however, said that some people were working against the interest of the country by trying to cause instability.
He expressed optimism that by God’s grace, Nigeria would overcome all its problems and set itself on the path of peace and prosperity.
