The Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams, has called for the correction of the 1999 Constitution for peace to reign in Nigeria.

Adams who described the constitution as satanic added that it is a wrong structure which Nigeria is running on.

He said this in an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today programme on Wednesday.

“The major problem now is that Nigeria is being run on the basis of a wrong structure and on the basis of a wrong constitution,” he said.

“The constitution of 1999 is wicked, it is satanic. If we don’t correct it, I can’t guarantee that peace will be in this country.”

Adams also spoke on the necessity of the notice issued by the Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, which required herdsmen to vacate the forest reserves in the state.

“If the Governor did not give the ultimatum, would the Federal Government had agreed to call the governors’ forum to hold a meeting? So, as a leader, as a chief security officer, you must take the bull by the horn.

He added that the security crisis in the North-West, North-East and in the Middle-Belt won’t be allowed in Yoruba land.

“Don’t forget that Yoruba land is the economic nerve of this country. So, the Federal Government must know the implication of security threat in Yoruba land,” he said.
