Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams has stated that a replacement security outfit that will compliment effort of the Western Nigeria Security Network, Operation Amotekun, and other security agencies in tackling the insecurity ravaging the region would soon be unveiled.
Speaking at a news conference in Lagos, he said the new security outfit would involve all security groups, traditional rulers and other stakeholders within the region.
He said stakeholders involved would deliberate on the difficulty in Ibadan Oyo State on St Patrick’s Day.
Adams and a few members of the Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere present at the press briefing also called on the six governors of the region to inject a minimum of 15 percent of their annual budget into agriculture.
Iba Adams, Afenifere spokesman, Yinka Odumakin and a chieftain of the group, Sola Lawal said investing an enormous amount of cash in agriculture will play an enormous impact in providing sustainable food production for the region.
They condemned the recent protest by food sellers within the northern part of the country, which prevented food from the world from coming to the Southwest.
The trio said investment in agriculture would offer employment, enhance internally generated revenue, provide food security, reduce urban congestion and enlarge the coast for participatory modernised agriculture.
Adams explained that the Southwest spent an enormous amount on food daily, adding that the protest was a clarion call to the Southwest leaders to supply the required security for farmers to supply enough agricultural produce.
