We Have Solutions, Give Us A Chance, Traditionalists Beg Buhari

Traditionalists in Ogun State have  appealed to the Nigerian President Muhammad Buhari to allow them tackle insecurity and poverty in the country through the traditional means.The Oluwo Ifa of Egba, Chief Ifagbeminiyi Baoku, said this during the 2021 ‘Isheshe Day’ held in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.The day is celebrated every  August 20 and was set aside as special worship day for traditional religion worshippers to celebrate their deities.  The Oluwo Ifa of Egbaland, during the celebration, argued that the crisis the country was facing was due to negligence of the guidelines given by the oracle explaining that all it required for Nigeria to overcome its numerous challenges was for the oracles to be consulted and sacrifices offered.The Oluwo Ifa, however, appealed to Governor Dapo Abiodun to declare August 20 as public holiday so as to be able to carry out ‘rituals’ in commemoration of the Day.While appealing to the governor to give importance to the worship of oracle in the state, Baoku said worshiping of Ifa was not evil. He added that All governmental portfolio in the country have been voted for by all the religions in the country but, after they have  been voted for, they start discriminating one religion from the others.Baoku also wondered why Every year, the governor selects a particular day to go and worship with the Christians and also a day to worship with the Muslims, Why is traditional religion always exempted?
