Yoruba Welfare Group Hails Alaafin, Ooni Over Reconciliation Of Tinubu, Aregbesola



A socio-cultural group, Yoruba Welfare Group has commended the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi and the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi over their effort at reconciling the National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the former governor of Osun State, Rauf Aregbesola.

YWG National President, Adegoke Alawuje gave the commendation in Iwo, Osun State while addressing the journalists after paying a courtesy visit to the Oluwo of Iwo, Oba AbdurRasheed Akanbi.

Alawuje saluted the courage and the dedication of the two paramount rulers in Yoruba land for being proactive and prioritising the overall interest of the Yoruba race.

“The two monarchs have expressed determination to break the jinx and prevent a repeat of unpalatable history that affected Chief Obafemi Awolowo and Chief MKO Abiola. Alaafin in particular has promised to finally break the jinx which seem to be repeating itself on Yoruba children; saying the curse shall not repeat itself on Tinubu.

Alawuje advised all well-meaning Yorubas and supporters of the two politicians to jettison their selfish interests and support the effort of the monarchs in the overall interest of their race.

Alaafin and Ooni had convened a Peace Meeting of Yoruba Leaders Over Reconciliation Between Asiwaju Tinubu and Aregbesola on Tuesday March 1, 2022 in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital to resolve the lingering strained relationship between two prominent Yoruba political leaders.

The meeting was held at a private residence of the Alaafin of Oyo in Ibadan.

The leaders, as a first step to finding an enduring peace and reconciliation between the duo, held the initial meeting with Aregbesola.

After consultations, the leaders agreed to move to the next stage of the meeting which will be held at a later date.

It would be recalled that Alaafin had initially entrusted the reconciliatory assignment to the Yoruba Welfare Group but he had to personally swing into action with other Yoruba leaders having realised the enormity of the crisis.
