Ondo Govt Bars Officials From Public Comments Over Araromi-Obu/Ikale Land Dispute



By Niyi Olutunde, Akure

Following the inauguration of the Panel to probe the crisis which erupted over land dispute between the people of Araromi-Obu and Ikale (Ago Alaye), the Ondo state governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, has directed government officials to stop making forthwith, public comments or statements on the matter.

This was contained in a statement signed by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mr. Ojo Oyewamide on Tuesday and made available to journalists.

The statement said the action becomes imperative in order to allow the Panel set up by Government to be dispassionate in its assignments.

“Mr. Governor’s belief in the sanctity of the process already put in place underscores the need for all to avoid the path of sub justice.

“Nonetheless, this directive does not in any way inhibit private suggestions from individuals to the Panel by way of Memorandum on issues that will promote a more harmonious relationship between the affected communities”, the statement reads.
