Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has been advised to stop his one-administration, which is responsible for worsening insecurity in thd state.
Ibadan Traditional Council gave the advice during a weeken at the palace of the Olubadan of Ibadan, Oba Saliu Adetunji.
The council include members of the Olubadan-in-Council, monarchs and Mogajis.
Taking turns to speak on the growing security crisis in the State, the council members accused Makinde of running a one-man administration, which they insisted was hurting security.
According to the Nation Newspaper, the traditional rulers posited that a one-man management cannot work in securing the State.
According to them, several attempts to meet the Governor and explain why his style was failing the State were unsuccessful, accusing Makinde of having poor respect for them.
They explained they were excluded in the security architecture despite the fact that they are closer to the people in all the communities.
Asking the various community leaders in the state capital to raise vigilante groups, comprising youths in their areas of jurisdiction, the monarchs maintained “what is unfolding security-wise in the state capital looks fearful and raises concern among the people and the reason why all hands must be on deck”.
The Otun Olubadan of Ibadanland, Sen. Lekan Balogun, appealed to Makinde to change his approach.
He stressed excluding the traditional institution has not been helpful to security in Ibadan.
He said: “We have nothing against the Governor, we supported his emergence and want him to succeed, which is why we are calling his attention to what we perceive as a lacuna.
