The Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams has described the 1999 constitution (as amended) as “satanic and wicked”.
Speaking on Wednesday on Channels Television programme Politics Today, Adams said the country is being run on the basis of a wrong constitution.
“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,” he said.
On Ondo quit notice to herdsmen, the Aare Ona Kakanfo maintained that herdsmen operating illegally should vacate the forest reserves of the state.
He urged Governor Rotimi Akeredolu to “take the bull by the horn” to protect his people.
Gani Adams said: “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?”
“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.”
“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,” he added.
