Yoruba Obas, Kings To Settle Obasanjo & Jonathan’s Fight – Akinruntan

Feb 19, 2015 – Yoruba Monarchs, Traditional Rulers Planning To Settle Obasanjo & Jonathan’s Fight – Akinruntan

Chairman of the Yoruba Obas Conflict Resolu­tion Committee, Oba Obateru Akinrun­tan, has said Nigerians should not think that for­mer president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, and the incumbent, Dr. Good­luck Jonathan, are en­emies.

Speaking after a meeting of the committee members in Ibadan yesterday, he disclosed that the duo would resolve their differences.

Checks re­vealed that many Nigerians believed that Obasanjo, who dumped the Peoples Demo­cratic Party (PDP) earlier this week and Jonathan, who is the PDP presidential candidate for this year’s general elections had fallen apart.

Akinruntan, the Okoro Agija 1, who is the Olugbo of Ugbo Kingdom in Ondo State, noted that Obasanjo and Jona­than knew how to settle their differences, adding that the committee wanted peaceful conduct of this year’s general elections.

We don’t dabble into poli­tics. They (Obasanjo and Jona­than) have been friends for ages. They would settle them­selves. If you see them fight­ing on pages of newspapers, it doesn’t mean they are enemies. If any of them has any event now, don’t be surprised to see them turning up,” he said.

The meeting was attended by the Oluyari of Iyari in Ondo State, Oba Daodu Joel Sun­day; the Jowe of Irukorogha in Ondo State, Oba Matthew Olasheinde; Gbaluwe of Ig­botan Kingdom, Oba Ajayi Adeniyi; Sabigana of Iganna in Oyo State, Oba Saliu Oyemon­la Azeez; and Oba Sikirulahi Adelani from Ogun State.

The monarch also spoke on the efforts of the committee in resolving conflicts among Yo­ruba Obas, adding that the pro­vocative utterances that could lead to feud among the tradi­tional rulers had been checked.

Akinruntan noted that the committee had been having separate meetings with the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi III, and the Ooni of Ife, Oba Okunade Sijuade Olubuse II, towards resolving the feud between the two Yoruba monarchs.

He said the efforts had been yielding fruitful results. The two monarchs, he stated, hardly launched verbal attacks against each other like before.

    Obasanjo is not a friend to GEJ because a good friend will stand by u in times of need and not trying to bring u to the dust.Is obasanjo trying to tell nigerians that his govt was free from corruption?GEJ inherited corruption from OBJs govnt and now he is trying to play self righteouness when we know his storry.I also liken him to king saul in the bible,he shold go to hell becos GEJ refuses to let him control and ruin his govt. elder stateman.

    I don’t believe this is a matter of feud between duo but an expression of individual opinion. Obasanjo is entitle to his opinion likewise Jonathan. Jonathan is stretching his hand to these Obas as a last favor from South West but it wouldn’t work. This is a matter between Nigerians and its leadership. These Obas are not even relevant nowadays because most of them have sold their birth right for money. These Obas instead should be representing the interest of the masses not Jonathan.
