The Aare Ona Kakanfo designate, Otunba Gani Adams, on Tuesday paid a courtesy visit to the Lagos State governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, at the Lagos House in Alausa Ikeja, where he commended his role in the political and economic integration of the South West region.


 
Adams said he was in Lagos to pay homage as well as invite Governor Ambode to his installation scheduled for January 13, alluding to the fact that the governor since assumption of office had taken the growth of the South West region to heart.

“I want to thank you for your role in the South West integration. I believe that Lagos is South West even though it’s the commercial nerve centre of Nigeria. In your own tenure, I have realised that you are more interested in the integration of the South West and we are Yorubas no matter where we come from, thank you so much for that,” Adams said.

The Aare Ona Kakanfo designate equally lauded Governor Ambode, noting that it was in his tenure that Lagos joined the Oodua Investment Group, an initiative tailored towards expanding the economic integration of the South West region.

“I have realised that in your own tenure, you clearly came out to support Oòduà Investment. So, its important for any governor of Lagos State to support the group, because about 50 to 60 per cent of Oodua Investment is in Lagos and as the number one citizen and Chief Security Officer, its a good direction and God will bless you for that,” Adams said.


 
Speaking further, Adams commended the developmental strides in Lagos, said Governor Ambode in the last two and half years, saying he had succeeded in giving the state a major facelift and bringing about appreciable level of progress across the state.

“I am so particular about the Light up Lagos. If I am driving from the Island anytime from 8pm, I always ask my Chief of Staff or driver if we are in Europe or we are still in Nigeria or the same Lagos that we are living before?

“I think that anyone that gives light, gives life, by giving light to Lagos State, you are giving life to Lagos State and the more you keep on lighting up Lagos, God will continue to develop Lagos State,” he said.

Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has called on the Federal Government to put a permanent stop to the killings in Benue State by herdsmen, saying “what is happening in Benue and other middle-belt states is more than a strife between herdsmen and local farmers, it has gotten to the level of terrorism and ethnic cleansing.


 
“Just now, we heard the news of the herdsmen attacking the camp of mobile policemen, Mopol 13 in Benue, killing two officers by slitting their throats. Do you call people who could invade the camp of mobile policemen in a guerilla manner and overpower armed Mopol mere Fulani herdsmen?”

Governor Fayose, who sympathized with the government and people of Benue State for the murder of 59 people last week, said President Muhammadu Buhari must take decisive steps to stop what he described as an attempt to wipe the Agatu and Tiv people of Benue state off the face of the earth.

According to a statement on Tuesday, by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Governor Fayose also berated the likes of former President Olusegun Obasanjo for keeping silent on while thousands of Nigerians were being killed by herdsmen.

He said; “Nigerians are gradually beginning to see these killings as a case of the hand of Esau, the voice of Jacob. It is man inhumanity to man, clear cruelty and unacceptable.”
