“I appeal to Your Excellency to slow down security trail on Sunday Igboho. I’ve got the assurance adhering to this piece will go a long way in strengthening the unity of Nigeria. I promise your Excellency that Igboho will mind his steps henceforth. He has suffered a lot. He would step down agitations. I will bring him for peace talks at the appropriate time.”
“He has learnt and ready to mend his way. Nigeria is an indivisible entity that cannot be tore overnight for whatever reason. let’s forgive to move on and up. The strength is not only in diversity but also forgiveness.”
Oluwo who stressed that Nigerians have seen the might of government when it is ready to tackle any crime commended the President for his determination to checking banditry and other criminalities across the country
Oba Okanbi remarked also that, “We have seen the handwriting, when the government speaks different languages, the wise ruminates and take caution. I commend your efforts geared towards combating crimes, checkmating banditry and curtailing criminalities and your vigorous fight against corruption.”
” When a child is a slow learner, the parents will have to guide, guard and educate severally before a stable momentum. Silence of the parents at times may be translated to support but not necessarily. Not all children appreciate their parents at the point of moral discipline. Disciplinarians tell the truth to positively shape the children’s future. But when the child tells you your mouth is smelling, you stay back and observe.
“However, a responsible father will not throw his child away with the bathwater. I say this to let your Excellency understand the position of most Royal Fathers and stakeholders on agitation for the Yoruba nation. We warned him.
” I extend my cool, warmest royal greetings to the number one citizen, President Muhammed Buhari. I have the hope your day is the same as mine. As a Muslim, you are not unaware of the peculiarity of Friday, being one of the days for forgiveness,” he submitted.
