The current challenges we face in Nigeria is worrisome, and there is a need for our traditional leaders and all Men of goodwill to join hands with Government in promoting Peace, harmony and Unity in our Land as embodied in our Quote of arm: UNITY and FAITH.


We are a Blessed Country free of several natural challenges in our world today.  We are free from Natural disasters such as earthquakes, Tsunami and so on: suiside bombing is allien to us, it is allience to our culture and twadituon. It is strange in our land. Our security challenges are Manmade and we must appeal to all of Nigerians through our traditional insitutions, the custodians of our soci–culture to continue in support for our Government and security operatives in keeping Nigeria Safe and our people united. Because United we stand, divided we fall and the more and better we are together, the greater we shall be.
