He lamented traditional rulers cannot leave their domains without permission of their local government chairmen, declaring such development as absurd.
“I am not a politician, nor am I an activist. I am a pastor but issues like this must be addressed and I am happy the politicians are talking about restructuring and issues like this should be look into so that that the royal fathers will take their rightful position in the scheme of things in Nigeria,” he stressed.
