Ekiti State is far and above all other interests and therefore
everyone should support the elders peace efforts.”
The statement reads: “Ekiti elders under the leadership of our highly
respected legal icon, Aare Afe Babalola (SAN), called a meeting
between the two factions of the State House of Assembly to resolve
politically the crisis in the House of Assembly and I, as the State
governor does not have any objection because the peace of Ekiti is far
and above all other interests.
“The meeting is scheduled to hold at Afe Babalola University, Ado
Ekiti at 11am on Thursday.
“I therefore call on everybody to support this peace move and no one
should do anything to undermine it.
“Knowing how agitated and concerned the people of Ekiti have been on
this crisis, I wish to urge our people to give this peace effort a
chance and I urge all security agencies in the State to see to it that
adequate security is provided before, during and after the meeting.
“I thank Ekiti people for their unflinching support for the government
and appeal to them to continue to maintain peace, bearing in mind that
no society can progress in an atmosphere of rancour.”
