National Confab re-echoes at Yoruba Summit

By; Odeyemi Samuel, Akure
Yoruba Council of Elders and other notable stakeholders in the South West had called on the President Muhammadu Buhari to effect the implementation of the recommendation of National Confab without further delay.
The stakeholders made the call at the Forum of Yoruba Summit  in Akure, urging the President to commence the implementation of the Confab report if he wants Nigerians to take him serious on his restructuring agenda.
The Chairman of the Summit, Chief Ayo Adebanjo said the only solution to various problems ravaging the country is true and sincere restructuring based on true federalism.
The group however called on Buhari to come out with his economic blue print which he has for the country in the next three years that could tackle unemployment, insurgents, electoral process among others.
The group in a communiqué, expressed worry over the spate of violent crimes in Yoruba land and fears of possible Boko Haram cells in the region.
They therefore called on Governors to be proactive in securing the space just as Yorubas demanded the establishment of State Police to make the Governors the Chief Security Officers of their respective states in its real terms.
The Governor of Ondo state, Dr Olusegun Mimiko decried the menace of activities of Fulani herdsmen in the South West saying decentralisation of the Police will checkmate the activities of cattle rearers in the region.
The guest lecturer at the occasion, Dr Yemi Farounbi decried the alarming rate of unemployment in Yoruba land, a land which he said is known for her Linguistic Homogeneity, a land that represents economic region, capable of standing on its own.
In order to reposition the Yoruba nation for the immediate and future challenges, the summit set up  sub committees such as Contract and Mobilisation, Economic, Education, Culture and Values, Media, Security, Strategic –Political and Think —Tank.
Conveners of the second Summit were, Rt. Rev. Emmanuel Gbonigi, Chairman Yoruba Forum. Chief Reuben Fasoranti, Chairman Afenifere. Otunba Gani Adams, Leader Odua People’s Congress. Gen. Adeyinka Adebayo, Chairman Yoruba Council of Elders and Dr. Kunle Olajide, Chairman Summit Planning Committee.
