The Publisher of Green Savannah Diplomatic Cable, Sunday Oyinloye recently appointed as the African Director of iSubsahara, an arm of iPublish House, Canadahas explained the reasons why he is leading the campaign against ritual killings in Nigeria
According to him, #Ngloryback 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.
iPublish House Canada is partnering with Green Savannah Diplomatic Cable on the project.
A statement issued and signed by the Campaign’s Director of Media and Public Relations, Malam Abdulrahman Aliagan, stated 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.
The Publisher 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
According to him, “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”
The National Convener also called on government at the three tiers 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
