Group advises FG on state of the nation
A socio political group, Voice of Reason, has once again intervened in the pressing national issues.
The group said many problems in the polity had been identified as being worthy of statesmanlike deliberation and contemplation.
Speaking at a press briefing with journalists, Femi Adegoke, the convener of the group, said all these issues, if not properly and timely addressed would lead to more problems.
“We are aware of the need to maintain law and other. The arrest and subsequent detention of Omoyele Sowore, the erstwhile presidential candidate of the African Action Congress, is a worrisome development.
“The hurried release of El-Zakzaky after the protest by IMN turned bloody is another case in point.

“El-Zakzaky was granted bail by a competent court and was awarded compensation. The government ignored the court order until things took a nasty turn. VOR wants the government of the day to tread cautiously in the minefield of global geopolitics, and seek a diplomatic or political resolution to the problem.
“We acknowledge the efforts of the government to bring an end to the spate of kidnappings, armed robbery, and other violent acts to which our people have been subjected, especially when they travel between our cities. We urge that herdsmen, who are supposed to interface peacefully with their host communities should be disarmed across the nation.
“Effective security measures should be worked out with citizens, including the traditional institution in every locality,” Adegoke said.
RUGA or a Repeal of Land Use / Waterfront Acts as currently being proposed by the central government are voted against without any reservation, he added.
