The Alake has restated that he would continue to campaign for equitable peace and fairness among all ethnic nationalities in the country.
Oba Adedotun Gbadebo, the Apex Monarch of Egbaland, who was speaking to reporters, who virtually accosted the Royalty on the sidelines of the commissioning of six completed projects at the Federal Medical Centre, Idiaba on Monday, said that, as a Traditional and Community leader, it would be unthinkable for him, who had sworn to strive for the promotion of durable peace and progress of the people, to simultaniously encourage in whatever form, violence and disharmony.
Rather, he said, he would always advocate and advance the option of peaceful resolution for all disagreements because, on the long run, all combatants would seat at a conference table for settlement.
Oba Adedotun Gbadebo disclosed that, even though his Pacific Statement was grossly and maliciously misquoted to mislead the innocent public, he would never join issues with those attacking and maligning his person.
Oba Adedotun Gbadebo revealed that he neither mentioned nor referenced any name or person, adding that he was only talking generally.
According to the Egba Paramount Monarch, the Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria, RTEAN, had paid him a courtesy visit and he expressed satisfaction that, gone were the days when Road Transportation Operators, would change leadership through the use of guns, cutlasses and other forms of violence.
He urged them to sustain the cordiality and understanding, now taking place among them, adding that it was here that he talked about the general peace and harmony in the country, instead of resorting to violence.
Concluding, Alake reconfirmed that, “I as a traditional ruler cannot support chaos or anarchy and most of many things I do are to promote peace, progress and mostly the happiness of all my people.”
Newsflagship recalls that some of Sunday Igboho, aides had been pouring vituperations on the Alake over his general call for the option of peaceful resolution of all issues, over and above the preference for war.
