The Ooni of Ife , Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has admonished Youths in Ekiti State not to be used as an instrument of violence by some politicians during Saturday’s Governorship election in the state.
Oni stated this on Thursday through his Directorate of Media and Public Affairs of Ooni’ s Palace quoted Oba Ogunwusi, when the British High Commissioner to Nigeria , Mr Paul Arkwright, paid him a courtesy visit in Ile Ife.
“What I heard happening in Ekiti State during this electioneering period does not make me happy as their father. Enough of the crisis; we do not want any crisis in Yorubaland. Where there is violence, progress and tranquility 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.
“Youths must refuse to be used for political violence that waste lives because they too can become governor or President of the country in the nearest future.”
