We Want Peace In Ikirun, Groups Tell Gov Adeleke
Notable groups in Ikirun, a prominent town in Osun State, have called on the Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke to ensure there is peace in the town not minding the campaign of calumny by faceless people in and outside the town.
The groups, Adeleke Solidarity Movement, Ikirun Elders and Youths, The Youths Of Ikirun and The Ikirun Council of Mothers, in a petition by their legal representative, Dapo Ogunwusi Esq, said they are hopeful that the governor will do the will of the people.
The group said, “First accept our sincere congratulations on the giant and unprecedented strides taken by your administration in bringing life and development back to Osun State. Posterity will never forget. We, the people, will never forget.
“Kindly allow us sir to draw your attention to the present situation concerning the Akirun with the activities of certain individuals who have been busy trying to draw the hand of the clock backwards and have surrounded the seat of government with baseless and unfounded rumours the sorts that mislead the erstwhile Oyetola regime into taking certain precipitate and unfair actions”.
They added that the decision of the governor to declare the Akirun Stool vacant at the inception of the administration has brought some peace to the state.
“It was a decision that certain individuals are hell-bent on frustrating by peddling wild and dangerous claims. The task to crown the right person and family as Akirun is a task that must be done without fear or favour.
“It is our belief that there is no difficulty in picking the next Akirun from the right royal family, and it is a matter of great concern that dishonest people are hell-bent on perverting the cause of justice.
“We are however not afraid to trust Governor Adeleke with such a sensitive assignment, being a God-fearing leader who himself had been a victim of gross injustice in the past and who has consistently ruled with the fear of God”.
They concluded that the peace of the town is paramount in their heart and they are hopeful that the governor will ensure that peace reign in the town and the state as a whole.
