THE Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yoruba land, Iba Gani Adams, yesterday, spoke to President Muhammadu Buhari not to utilize the military designs to threaten Nigerians from practicing their establishment.

In an announcement by his Special Assistant on Media, Kehinde Aderemi, Aare Adams noticed that the utilization of military amid the races is discretionary, portraying it as a ploy to undermine Nigeria's vote based system.

He stated: "We are not in a banana republic, whereby the Federal Government will, deliberately, foist the military on us amid races. I concur there are security challenges the nation over; in any case, it's not possible for anyone to utilize that as a ploy to utilize the military to undermine our vote based system. What we are encountering, since last Saturday, isn't unreasonably bravo as a country, since a few government officials have idealized their arrangements to truncate this vote based system through the secondary passage. The entire world is watching us. A considerable lot of us put our lives on hold for us to have this popular government. Numerous individuals lost their lives for us to have this majority rule government. Our majority rules system accompanied a great deal of penances. In an enlightened clime, the police and the common resistance are typically used to screen decisions, while the military is utilized amid wars. The coming decision isn't a war, so why the mandates to utilize military to screen race forms?

This is alarming and their quality will prompt mayhem. This decision ought to be tranquil, free and reasonable. We don't need bloodbath, nonetheless, with this improvement, I have an inclination that numerous Nigerians will be disappointed and that can corrupt Nigeria's picture and it will likewise send a wrong flag to the global network."
