    Ooni Of Ife -- I’m Unhappy About Happenings In Ekiti State *

    The Ooni of Ife, Ooni Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, Ojaja II says he is unhappy about the happenings in Ekiti as the state prepares for the July 14 governorship elections.

    The monarch while hosting the British High-Commissioner to Nigeria, Paul Arkwright at his palace in Ile-Ife in Osun State called for an end to crisis and violence.


    “What I heard happening in Ekiti state during this electioneering period does not make me happy as their father. Enough of crisis, we do not want any crisis in Yorubaland. Where there is violence, progress and tranquillity will be deprived, but where there is peace, there is progress.

    “I specifically warn all youths in Ekiti state to maintain peaceful coexistence before, during and after the election, as brighter future awaits them if they productively discover themselves,” Ooni said.

    He also urged the youths not to allow themselves to be used as agents of electoral violence and criminality. He said the youths should rather aim to lead in the political capacity such as governorship or presidency in the nearest future.

    He warned Ekiti residents against acts of violence before and during the gubernatorial election in the state.

    The British envoy, Paul Arkwright who is also the United Kingdom Chief Observer to Nigeria on the Ekiti gubernatorial election also joined voices with the Ooni and called for free, fair, credible and peaceful election in Ekiti State on Saturday.

    He said the purpose of his coming is based on observing the conduct of Ekiti gubernatorial election which precedes 2019 Presidential by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

    The British High Commissioner also called for calm urging residents to shun electoral violence. He added that crisis cannot add any value to the growth and development of the state.
