From Olise Nwagbogwu,
Sokoto State Governor, Rt. Hon. Aminu Tambuwal has called on traditional rulers in the country to take charge of security in their communities.
Tambuwal made the call while inaugurating Delta State Traditional Rulers’ Council Secretariat in Asaba, on Wednesday.
He said in view of the role traditional rulers play in the administration of communities, it becomes expedient that a constitutional amendment be made to create a role for them.
The governor stated that Northern Governors’ Forum had already resolved to push for the amendment of the Constitution in that regard and urged their Southern counterparts to support the move.
He described Governor of Delta state, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa, as “an amiable, reliable and performing governor” and commended him for his contributions in the growth of the state and prayed God to preserve and keep him for greater service to the nation.
“Traditional rulers are not just traditional institution but a fountain of wisdom, knowledge and experience that we drink from in the discharge of our duties as governors. “We must do everything possible to preserve the traditional institution and bring back the diminishing glory of the institution.
