Osibanjo said: “Some of the elite can’t come to a consensus when it comes to insecurity. Most elite who were promoting ethnic agenda depends on dubious activities in promoting regional and ethnic cards. The elite use that to acquire more for themselves. Our political, economic, and religious elite should be socially irresponsible.”
