Ekiti Govt. Reconciles Alare of Are-Ekiti, Chiefs
The Ekiti State Government has reconciled the Alare of Are-Ekiti, Oba Boluwade Adebiyi with thirty traditional chiefs who boycotted the palace for three months accusing him of involvement in unbecoming conducts that portray the community in a bad light.
Speaking after the final peace meeting, the Deputy Governor, Otunba Bisi Egbeyemi, urged the traditional ruler to always carry his chiefs along by working with them in harmony and always ready to listen to his subjects’ advice.
The Deputy Governor, urged both parties to always respect the peace accord and mutual agreement acceded to during the crisis.
The Chiefs led by the Olotin of Are Ekiti, Chief Temidayo Olubodun, said they forwarded a petition to the state government because they were not comfortable with Oba Adebiyi’s leadership style which they said was inimical to the peace, progress and development of the town.
The chiefs who said they had forgiven the monarch hailed the Deputy Governor for intervening in the rift, saying they were going back to the palace to resume their duties they had boycotted in the interest of peace.
