The Ooni said, “Everybody is beating the drum of war; we don’t want war. Who can stand war? We want something better for our youths.

The highly revered king further urged the president to flush out bad eggs among the Fulani herdsmen causing havoc across the nation.

“We should better use them (youths) for something good other than shouting war and anarchy. We don’t want that,” he stated.

The president thanked Ooni for the visit and promised to work on his observations, adding that the nation will not break under his watch.
