• Olubadan pledges commitment to Yoruba unity
The Yoruba Oba’s Conflict Resolution Committee has called for perseverance, understanding and cooperation of all Nigerians for President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration despite the current economic challenges.
Addressing the press in a communiqué issued at the end of its meeting at Premier Hotel, Ibadan yesterday, Oba Saliu Oyemonla Azeez, the Sabiganna of Iganna, on behalf of the committee appealed to Nigerians to be patient, expressing support for the method of governance adopted by current administration to move the nation forward.
Assuring Nigerians that the administration will bring smiles to the faces of the people soon, the committee asked the government to give traditional rulers the chance to contribute their input in governance, considering their closeness to the people.
Traditional rulers present at the meeting are: Oba Obateru Akinruntan, Olugbo of Ugbo kingdom, who is the Chairman; Oba Sikirulai Alabi-Adelani Obatula, Olojodu of Ojuduland, Ijebu Ogun state and Oba Atibioke, Olubaran of Ibaran, Akoko, Ondo State.
Others are: Oba Obafemi Ogbaro, the Odoka of Ogbaro; Oba Walihu Sanni, Olugedede of Akoko; Oba Sunday Mogaji, Oosunla Erusu-Akoko among others.
Meanwhile, The Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Saliu Akanmu Adetunji, Aje Ogungunniso 1 yesterday restated his commitment to the cause of Yoruba unity.
Oba Adetunji, who spoke while welcoming the conference of Oke Ogun Obas and chiefs led by the Aseyin of Iseyin, Oba Abdul Ganiy Adekunle Salaudeen Ologunebi to his palace said without unity, there cannot be progress in the land.
The royal father said: “We in Ibadan have started seeing non-Ibadan indigenes as our kith and kin. We see them as our brothers and sisters and agents of change, peace and progress. Last month, when the Oba of Ago-Are was receiving the staff of office, I sent a delegation. They were well received and well treated.
