Chairman of the Yoruba Traditional Council in the 19 northern states and Abuja, Ambassador Mohammed Arigbabowo has described the demised of the late Olubadan of Ibadan Land, Oba Samuel Odulanap Oguntade I, as a great loss to the Yoruba race.
According to Ambassador Arigdagowo, the death of the first class traditional ruler came as a shock to all, adding that the late monarch died at a time when the Yoruba people needed him most.
“The late Olubadan death is a great lost to the traditional institution in the Country because he was a father to all and a person who rule his people with fear of God. Ambassador Arigbabowo also commended President Muhammadu Buhari for the recognition given to the traditional Council describing the development as a good omen for the unity of the country.
“The appointment of the Emir, Ilorin, Emir of Katsina and Etsu Nupe as Pro Chancellor in various Universities across the country would cement the relationship between the government and traditional institution.
“I called on Nigerians to give President Muhammadu Buhari time to execute his developmental programs which I am sure will benefits the people.
However, it will take time because of the decay on the ground.
“As our leader, we called on President Buhari to address the issue of unemployment in the country to reduce the number of our youth that are lure into crimes and insurgency. I call on all Nigerians to pray for our President as he tries to bring the nation back to the right track,” he said.
