… It’s death trap for motorists

By Michael Ofulue, Osogbo

The members of the Osun State Council of Obas, at their monthly statutory meeting under the chairmanship of His Imperial Majesty, the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, have appealed to the Federal Government to fix the Ibadan-Ife-Ilesa Express Road.

In a communiqué issued at the end of their monthly meeting at the Council chambers in Osogbo, they described the Ibadan-Ife-Ilesa Express Road as a death trap for motorists.

The Council noted that the road is one of the major Federal Government roads in the South West, linking several states together.

They therefore appealed to President Bola Tinubu to quickly intervene and fix this important road.

In the same vein, the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Nomadic Affairs, Hon. Adebisi Maruf Abiodun, assured the traditional rulers in the state of the efforts by Governor Ademola Adeleke to put an end to the crisis between Fulani herders and farmers in the state.

He took the opportunity of the Council’s monthly meeting to familiarize himself with traditional rulers in the state and to learn about their areas of concern.

He explained the strategies put in place by the Governor Ademola Adeleke-led administration to end the clashes between Fulani herders and farmers in the state.

In their response, the Osun Council of Obas sought mutual collaboration between the Fulani herders and the farmers in the state.

The Osun Council of Obas also called for laws to guide the operations of Fulani herders and farmers in the state.

They emphasized that with such laws and the intervention of the State Government, the havoc caused by Fulani herdsmen to farmlands would be reduced.

The press release was signed on behalf of the Council by Oba (Dr.) Michael Odunayo Ajayi, Arowotawaya II, the Elerinmo of Erinmo Ijesa.
