A former governor of Oyo State, Senator Rashidi Ladoja has said if the government is ready to address the insecurity in the land, he should address it headlong.
Ladoja ,who is the Osi Olubadan of Ibadan land spoke with journalists at his Bodija after observing the Eid-el-Kabir prayers.
Ladoja who was speaking on the continued detention of the leader of Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) Ibrahim Ez-Zakazaky said: “If we are not careful we will complicate the problem. We have constitutional governments at all levels. No arm should dominate another. If one dominates another, we will be in problem.
” We are looking for another problem if the man dies in custody. Insecurity is not limited to the Southwest. The government is not ready for security. If it is ready, government knows what to do.
“We are not frank with ourselves and sincere with the people. A lot of people don’t trust the government again because of insincerity.
On the essence of the celebration, Ladoja said:”This is the only festival for all faiths. All faiths believe in Prophet Ibrahim. The only thing the festival teaches is that we must believe in God. If you promise people you must fulfil it. Government must fulfil its promise to the people. There is nothing better than sacrifices.
He also disclosed that reconciliation was ongoing on the tussle between the Olubadan and the elevated obas
