Publisher of Green Savannah Diplomatic Cable, Prince Sunday Oyinloye is set to lead campaign against ritual killings in Nigeria.
The campaign, #Ngloryback, according to a statement signed and issued at the weekend by its Director of Media and Public Relations, Malam Abdulrahman Aliagan, is being promoted by the iPublish House Canada in partnership with Green Savannah Diplomatic Cable.
The statement informed that “the project aims at putting an end to ritual killings in the country, particularly money rituals which is becoming rampant among the youth who are looking for short-cut to wealth, a development that has further damaged the image of the country.
It added that “the campaign was designed to sensitise Nigerians about the negative effects of ritual killings and also support relevant government agencies saddled with the responsibility of sensitising the citizens towards national rebirth.”
Speaking at the inaugural meeting held virtually, the National Convener of #Ngloryback Sunday Oyinloye explained that the campaign is to rescue the country from ritual killers who are bent on damaging the image of the country and also creating the wrong impression that hard work is unprofitable.
Oyinloye, who was recently appointed as the African Director of iSubsahara, an arm of iPublish House Canada, the statement said, is worried at the rate innocent Nigerians are being killed for rituals, particularly girls whose body parts are sometimes severed and sold at ridiculous prices.
“The rate at which younger ones, even children are looking for money is scary, embarrassing senseless and its painting our dear country in a very bad light to the outside world.
“This is why my media outfit, Green Savannah Diplomatic Cable has taken it upon itself to raise a serious awareness campaign to stem the tide of this ugly and ungodly situation we found ourselves.
“I want to call on Nigerians, particularly the youth, relevant stakeholders and development partners at home and abroad to join hands with #Ngloryback team as we engage in aggressive media campaign against ritual killings and bring sanity back to our various communities.
“We believe this Campaign will lead to attitudinal change among the youth who form the bulk of our population and further enhance the safety and security of all Nigerians.
”Ritual killings in our country must end now so that we can bring back Nigeria’s glorious past and heritage in order to secure the future of the younger generation,” he stressed.
The national convener also called on the three tiers of government to create more employment opportunities for the teaming Nigerian youth and provide conducive atmosphere for the entrepreneurs in the country to thrive in their businesses.
