Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State yesterday visited the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi III, in his palace, Oyo town.
The visit was a follow-up to the letter written by the monarch on behalf of other six royal fathers in Yorubaland asking Fayemi to be very careful in the manner he handles the leadership crisis rocking the state traditional council.
The Chief Press Secretary to Fayemi, Mr Yinka Oyebode, who spoke on the visit in a telephone interview with The Guardian, said the visit was to shed light on some fundamental issues raised by the royal father in the letter.
Oyebode said it was an exchange of views between a father and a son.
Meanwhile, prominent Yoruba monarchs have scheduled a meeting for Wednesday, March 18, 2020, to find lasting solutions to the incessant leadership tussle that had pitched Alaafin of Oyo against the Alawe of Ilawe-Ekiti. (Text courtesy Guardian)
