Restructure the police for efficient service – Gani Adams tells FG


Yorubaland’s Aare Ona Kakanfo, Chief Gani Adams, urged the federal government to restructure the Nigerian police force for efficient service.

Adams gave his advice on Wednesday during the 2021 edition of the Olokun Festival in Sultan Beach, Badagry, Lagos.

According to him, the police in Nigeria are understaffed, demoralized, ill-trained, some of them increasing their low wages by robbing the public they have sworn to protect.

“Apart from the fact that the security architecture and composition of the Nigerian police force is flawed and unbalanced, it does not really reflect national perspectives.

“The idea of ​​using only one police structure is old and archaic.
“Nigeria, with over 200 million people and over 300 ethnic nationalities, cannot prosper and prosper under the current system.

“With the current security in Nigeria, it is very clear that Nigeria has moved beyond the stage of a single police structure,” he said.

However, Are Ona Kakanfo congratulated the federal government on the ongoing construction of the Lagos Badagry highway.

Adams said that although the project has been underway for a very long time now, “It is a joy that efforts continue to complete the road.

“When completed, I think the road will help boost the economy of the ancient city and its surroundings,” he said.

Adams, who is also the chief promoter of the Olokun Festival Foundation (OFF), said, “We need to educate our people on the need to promote Yoruba culture, tradition and heritage.

“It is our duty and our responsibility as cultural ambassadors to project the ideals and values ​​that have made the Yoruba breed one of the best in the world.

“As I stand here today, I firmly believe that we have a lot to gain as we celebrate Olokun and several other festivals.

“For example, Olokun is a deity who brings wealth to any society or state that celebrates her.

“The deity Olokun has a strong hold, transcending religious boundaries and is also the harbinger of peace and quiet.

“Muslims and Christians and even traditionalists still respect the spiritual relevance of the deities Olokun and Olosa,” he said.
