Gani Adams, Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, says the 1999 constitution (as amended) is “satanic and wicked”.
Adams said this on Wednesday when he featured on Politics Today, a Channels Television programme.
The Aare Ona kakanfo of Yorubaland said the country is being run on the basis of a wrong structure.
“The major problem now is that Nigeria is being run on the basis of a wrong structure, Nigeria is being run on the basis of a wrong constitution,” he said.
“The constitution of 1999 is wicked, it is satanic. If we don’t correct it, I can’t guarantee peace will reign in this country.”
While commenting on the order issued by Rotimi Akeredolu, governor of Ondo state, he said herders operating illegally should vacate the forest reserves of the state.
Adams said the governor as the chief security officer of the state must “take the bull by the horn” to protect his people.
“If the governor did not give the eviction, would the federal government have agreed for the governors’ forum to hold a meeting with the Ondo state government with south-west governors?” Adams asked.
“The Miyetti Allah would call the executive to meeting. So as a leader, as a chief security officer, you must took the bull by the horn and if he did not give that notice they won’t allow the governor to ban open grazing.”
He said the insecurity in the north-west and north-east would not be allowed in the Yoruba land, adding that Yorubaland is the commercial hub of the country.
“We cannot allow what is happening in the north-east, north-west, even in the middle-belt to happen in Yoruba land,” he said.
“Don’t forget that Yoruba land is the commercial hub of this country, the economic nerve of this country. So, the federal government must know the implication of security threat in Yoruba land.”
