“As traditional rulers, hold meetings and discuss with your people, call all the tribal leaders that you crowned as the leaders, pass the message of peace to them so that they will tell their members” he said.
Candido stated that the #EndSARS protests started well but those who didn’t share the same believe with the genuine persons have hijacked the protests for their bad intentions.
“With the dimension the #EndSARS agitation has gone AMAC is worst hit because of its allocation, so as leaders of communities we must brace up to curb any breach of peace, talk to them.
“The level we are in needs serious approach especially at the community level, as leaders we must do everything possible to advise our people to continue to live in peace with one another, AMAC has traditional, religious and political leaders, but without the peace there would not be any leader”
