A political group, ‘Youth’s For Youth’s In Politics’ has called on the federal government to establish National Council of Guidance (NCG) to address insecurity at the grassroots.
Briefing newsmen in Abuja yesterday, the spokesman of the group, Ahmad Khaliel, also called on the federal government to give traditional institution a room to make input into governance.
Khaliel, who is a presidential aspirant come 2019 election, also noted that the traditional institution would have stemmed the lingering insecurity in the country, if they had the power, but frowned that the institution has rather been alienated in governance.
While decrying the level of alienation of the traditional institution, the spokesman explained that even before the colonial masters, native societies had its own rules, regulations and systems which governed them.
Khaliel further lamented that the country’s woes began in 1979 when the traditional system was removed from governance, which gave elected officials the autonomy to rule over people who are totally disconnected from them.
He reiterated that the National Council on Guidance would enable the traditional institution to regulate the excesses of elected government officials.
The guest speaker called on the federal government to embark on a structural readjustment to ensure that everybody is involved, adding that the traditional institution should be reverend and accorded the desired respect.
According to him, “We need to go back to the people if we want to get it right in this country, the country should be adjusted and not restructured let our minds be concentrated on developing the people.
“Before the colonial masters, we had so many societies and each society had its own rules, regulations and systems, it was those systems that were taking care of each of the segment of our society. The colonial masters allowed our leaders to rule while they supervise. The traditional system was there to take care of the people.”
