The Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Chief Gani Adams, has begged the Federal Government to treat the deplorable road networks as a national emergency to reduce insecurity in Nigeria.
He disclosed this at the quarterly meeting of the 15th Aare Onakakanfo-in-Council, on Monday in Lagos.
According to him, fixing the roads is a way to stop the activities of criminals who have turned their evil deeds into a lucrative business across Nigeria.
His words, “I urged the Yoruba to support the governors of South-West to ensure total emancipation of the region as a way of achieving peace, security and stability.
“I implore them to invest heavily in agriculture, including livestock production and strategic storage.
“They should also ensure concerted exploitation of the region’s fertile soil and clement climate to feed the teeming populace in the zone and gainfully engage the spiralling population of its unemployed youths.
“This is a panacea to the prevailing criminal activities among that segment of our national population.”
