The Olowu of Kuta, Oba Hammed Adekunle Makama Oyelude Tegbosun 111, has charged Nigerian troops to hasten the fight to end insurgency and other forms of insecurity in the country.
Oba Makama made the assertion when feilding questions from representatives of major electronic media organisations on national issues in his palace.
The Osun monarch maintained that Nigerian soldiers should remain focused and not be distracted by criticisms from the opposition parties.
He expressed optimism that the new service chiefs will perform excellently as a result of the track records of their predecessors.
Oba Tegbosun 111 also urged politicians to stop playing politics with national security and join government to ensure restoration of total peace to the country.
He admonished Nigerians to give maximum support to the armed forces by providing them with intelligence capable of achieving their set objectives of ending insurgency across the nation.
Olowu of Kuta who is also the chairman supreme council of Owu Obas and chiefs commended Governor Adegboyega Oyetola on his sterling performance and implementation of people oriented programmes that will have positive impacts on the state.
“The governor has shown to us that he has come to serve the masses with a number of people-centered projects he had embarked upon” he remarked.
Speaking on the monthly renumeration for traditional rulers, Oba Oyelude called on government to adjust upwardly the renumeration because natural rulers are the first line of contacts with their people who are mostly affected by government policies.
Olowu maintained that the recent nomination of the immediate past army chief, General Tukur Buratai and others as ambassadors is in national interest, urging the senate to extend the bow and go gesture to them because they have truly paid their dues efficiently.
