Afenifere To Buhari: Restructure Nigeria Before End Of 2021

The Pan-Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari, the national and state assemblies and all other concerned authorities to ensure that restructuring of Nigeria is carried out within the remaining part of this year.

“Its implementation in terms of true federalism in finance, security, social welfare etc. must begin before the middle of next year.”

In a communiqué signed by its Publicity Secretary, Comrade Jare Ajayi, after the meeting held at the residence of its leader, Chief Ayo Adebanjo, Afenifere said that the intractable security challenges in the country are due largely to the restraint put in the way of state governors.

“The governors are described as chief security officers of their respective states, yet they have no security agency that can be deployed to where crimes are being committed with arms.

“A security agency that can arrest, investigate and prosecute. Those of them who came up with some security apparatus like Amotekun are disempowered because they could not bear arms.

“And when they arrest suspected criminals, such suspects must be handed over to the police. As experiences have shown, once this is done, hardly do such cases go beyond the police.

“And the state security body has no control anymore since the Police is a federal agency who does not take orders from the governor. This must change.

“State police, down to the level of local government, must become operational immediately” the communiqué asserts.”
