The co-chair of Nigeria’s traditional rulers and its traditional ruler added, “There are some areas we’d like to collaborate with you on, one of which is security. We are not suggesting that we are lazy; rather, it is time to use us more. however, use us to make your task easier.

“The traditional kings formed the basis of our nation as it is now. We’re here to show our allegiance and support. To make sure you leave a legacy, we want to collaborate with you.

“Don’t underestimate what traditional rulers can do”, he said.
