His statement reads;
“We know their agenda and as traditional rulers, we will not allow it to happen because if it happens, we’ll all suffer for it and it will cause a great setback for the south west region. ”
“We know how many dollars the agitators are collecting from abroad all in the name of fighting for the creation of Yoruba nation, unfortunately, we have some traditional rulers supporting them. I felt bad for them.”
He however applauded the administration of Mr Gboyega Oyetola for challenging the status quo by reversing policies that are not masses friendly as he encouraged Osun youths to remain focused and that they should not follow the way of Yoruba nation agitators.
“Yes, you have shown your grievances and the government at all levels are beginning to do what is right, we should however support our leaders to do the right thing.” he added.
