The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has called on Ekiti people to embrace peace as the state goes to the poll on Saturday.
The Ooni said this on Thursday during the visit of the British High Commissioner to Nigeria.
According to him, “What I heard happening in Ekiti State during this electioneering period does not make me happy as their father. Enough of the crisis; we do not want any crisis in Yorubaland. Where there is violence, progress and tranquillity will be deprived, but where there is peace, there is progress.
“I specifically warn all youths in Ekiti State to maintain peaceful coexistence before, during and after the election, as brighter future awaits them if they productively discover themselves.
“Youths must refuse to be used for political violence that waste lives because they too can become governor or President of the country in the nearest future.”
