FULANI HERDSMEN: OLUBADAN SENDS IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO NIGERIANS

Oba Saliu Adetunji, the Olubadan of Ibadanland, said blaming the Fulani or a particular ethnic group for insecurity in the country would only further breed disunity in the country and should not be allowed.

Oba Adetunji, however, called on farmers and herders in the Ibarapa area of Oyo State and Nigeria, in general, to live in harmony for the unity and development of Nigeria.

Adetunji gave the advice on Saturday during the Royal Festival of Praise organized by the Holy Ghost Royal House of Restoration Church in Ibadan.

He called on Nigerians to support the security agencies in the country in tackling criminal activities and refrain from taking laws into their own hands.

The Olubadan also called on religious leaders and traditional leaders to complement the government’s efforts in preaching unity in their various domains and constantly pray for peace and unity of the country.

” As leaders, it does not mean we are above God, traditional rulers, religious leaders should know that they are not God and we must lead our people in a Godly manner,” Oba Adetunji said.

The traditional ruler said that Nigeria needs prayer now more than ever before for peace, growth and development of the country.

Also speaking at the programme, the Alakola of Akola Ijesa, Oba Festus Adeyemi, said, as traditional rulers, they would continue to do their best in sensitising their people on the need to allow for peace in the country.

Adeyemi called on the youths to be focus and shun acts that would jeopardise the existing unity in the country.

Also commenting, Bishop Donald Oyewande, said the Royal Festival of Praise intends to let the traditional rulers be aware that only God enthroned and needed to be appreciated and praised at all times.

Oyewande said that traditional rulers need to learn and gather to pray for their community and as well educate their followers on the need for peace.

The bishop said that traditional rulers must be the eye and ear of the government in their various domains for the development of the their communities.

The General Overseer of Holy Ghost Royal House of Restoration Church, Supreme Archbishop Emmanuel Powerson, called on the traditional rulers to move closer to God and embrace God the more.

” I encourage you to seek God, even in the corner of your bedroom.

“The position you occupy is given to you by God and not by any mankind and I encourage you to unite and assist one another,” Powerson said.

The Bishop further prayed for peace and security of the country.
