Ooni Of Ife, Alaafin Of Oyo Meet Aregbesola Over Rift With Tinubu
The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi and the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, have waded into the rift between the National leader of All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Bola Tinubu and the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola.
The monarchs met behind closed doors on Tuesday at a Guest House owned by Alaafin of Oyo in Onireke, Ibadan North West local government.
The meeting which lasted for several hours had Aregbesola in attendance.
It was learnt that the traditional rulers decided to broker peace between the two prominent leaders in the interest of the Yoruba race.
It was gathered that Tuesday’s meeting with Aregbesola was the first reconciliatory move as the traditional rulers have agreed to meet with Tinubu at a later date.
Aregbesola, at the end of the meeting, declined comment on the outcome of the meeting.
However, one of his aides who preferred anonymity said the meeting was a huge success.
He said with the intervention of prominent Yoruba traditional rulers, the two leaders would sheathe swords in the interest of the Yoruba race.
