Fed Govt, states must team up to tackle insecurity, says JAMB Registrar

Ikole-Ekiti, Ekiti State – The Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, has called for increased collaboration between the Federal and state governments to address Nigeria’s security challenges.

Oloyede advocated for a “robust collaborative approach” and a “multi-level policing system” that includes all three tiers of government to overcome the country’s complex security issues.

He spoke at a Ramadan lecture in Ikole-Ekiti, Ekiti State, organized by Representative Akin Rotimi (Oye/Ikole Federal Constituency) to honor the National Vice President of the Ansar-Ud-Deen Society of Nigeria, Aare Sulaiman Ogunlayi.

Delivering the lecture titled “Duties of Muslim Citizens in National Development,” Oloyede, represented by Prof. Abdulrafiu Adebayo (Provost, Federal College of Education, Iwo, Osun State), stressed that security is a shared responsibility.

He argued that combating insecurity shouldn’t solely fall on the Federal Government’s shoulders.

“Sub-nationals” (state and local governments) must also contribute, creating a synergy that strengthens Nigeria’s security framework.

Acknowledging the vastness of Nigeria, Oloyede pointed out the limitations President Bola Tinubu faces in managing every security situation. He emphasized the need for governors to develop localized security measures within their states.

Oloyede also commented on the complex role of religion in Nigeria’s development.

“We are very religious,” he said, “but not godly enough. We cherish prayers but misunderstand the importance of hard work.”

National unity and overcoming ethnic divisions were identified by Oloyede as crucial steps forward. “Religion could have been a powerful solution,” he remarked, “but we haven’t used it effectively.”

Representative Rotimi used the event to urge politicians nationwide to honor and celebrate patriotic citizens while they are still alive.

“Aare Sulaiman Ogunlayi is an exemplary leader,” Rotimi said. “I’m honored to celebrate him today. We shouldn’t wait until our leaders pass away to show appreciation.”

Rotimi explained the event as part of a House of Representatives initiative, led by Speaker Tajudeen Abbas, encouraging constituency outreach and engagement.

“This is an example that all my colleagues are following during Easter and Ramadan,” he said. “It’s our effort to redefine representation and leave a lasting impact.”
