Akire of Ikire-Ile lists lessons of June 12

AKIRE OF IKIRE-ILE LISTS LESSONS OF JUNE 12


A prominent traditional ruler in Osun State, the Akire of Ikire-Ile, Oba Abdulazeez Olatunbosun has extolled the winner of June 12 presidential election, Chief Moshood Abiola for living a life of legacy.

The monarch in his June 12 message said the acclaimed winner of the June 12,1993 election, Chief Moshood Olawale Abiola laid his life for the country.

His words “June 12, 1993 election which Chief Moshood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola was presumed to have won was adjudged and remains the freest and fairest in the history of the giant of Africa, Nigeria. Prof. Humphrey Nwosu who conducted the elections introduced the novel Option A4 Voting System and Open Ballot System.

“Though Chief M.K.O Abiola was a friend of the military, ahead the elections there were insinuations that the leadership of the military felt uneasy about the emergence of Abiola as the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, and so would not accept the result if he won. Consequently, and true to the rumor making the rounds, the election was brutally annulled by the military administration of General Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida.

“Chief M.K.O Abiola in his bid to reclaim his mandate was held in custody after the famous ‘Epetedo Declaration’ and eventually lost his life while in detention. The following are few of the numerous lessons to draw from the annulment:

“Moshood Kashimawo Olawale ABIOLA, the winner of the June 12,1993 Presidential elections was a victim of complex conspiracy!

“Facts and figures have no version.
Friends who hate you secretly are worse than the enemies that you know. May God save us from such friends.

“Be careful! You can carry the hatred for a fellow or group of persons to the level that you get diminishing, and eventually demean yourself to nothingness.

“In whatever we do, courage is crucial. Nigerians had the courage to vote in the best candidate, Babangida lacked the courage to respect the results of the elections but Abiola had the courage to stand by his mandate freely given to him by Nigerians.

“It is good to be good in whatever we do. Abiola was a ditribalised, cheerful philanthropist, and a great helper who helped whoever comes his way whether Muslim or Christians, Yoruba, Igbo or Hausa. The whole Nigerians voted for him in spite of being a Muslim presidential candidate running alongside a Muslim vice-presidential candidate, Alhaji Babagana Kingibe. This shows that whatever good we sow we shall reap.

“Nigerians can come together to elect strong leadership if our leaders would stop playing the divisive ethnic and religious cards.

“The consequences of betrayal is always sad and ignominious. Babangida promised to respect the results of the June 12 elections but he went back on his promises. Today Abiola is celebrated even though he is no more while those who betrayed him are not even though they are alive.

“There is always a price to pay no matter how small for a vision or dream that one believes in. Abiola was not distracted by this reality even when his wife, Kudrat Abiola was shot dead by Abacha’s killers.

“Although Abiola is dead, his democratic spirit lives on. This is possible because of his selfless sacrifice. He is the foundation of the democracy that Nigerians enjoy today.

“May the Almighty Allâh continue to forgive his shortcomings and admit him and his wives Simbiat and Kudrat Abiola to aljanna firdau,” he added.

“It is regrettable, disheartening and shocking to note that innocent citizens in a church who were there to worship God could be mowed down in cold blood by yet to be identified assailants.

“I implore all Nigerians to fear God as well as the day they will be lifted into their own graves and finally appear in front of the God Almighty to account for their deeds while on earth. What would these killers tell God?

“I have an unshakable faith in the nation’s security agencies to unravel the identities of the killers and bring them to justice as quickly as possible.

“My prayer is that God will give the families who have lost their loved ones the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss with equanimity.

“I urge all well meaning citizens to assist, and continue to assist, security agencies with timely and actionable information that will help to apprehend the criminals and further nip criminalities in the bud within our various communities,” he added.

This was contained in a statement by the Information Officer of the local government, Olumide Felix and made available to newsmen, at Ipetumodu during the inauguration of Ipetumodu Royal Sisters.

Oba Oloyede has tasked the Royal Sisters not to fight, urging them never to “allow money to be their priority because money is a dangerous weapon that can destroy someone’s life” he said.

He gave the charge in his palace during the Reunion of Ipetumodu Royal Sisters tagged “REUNION IN UNITY”. He also told them to be faithful to one another and to love themselves.

Gbongan community not behind attack on Oyetola

The people of Gbongan, headquarters of Ayedaade Local Government Area of Osun State have dissociated themselves from the alleged unprovoked attack on the convoy of the State Governor, Mr Gboyega Oyetola during his campaign in the town.

The community in a statement issued by the Chairman, Association of Gbongan Progressive Elements (AGPE), Alhaji Saka Kola Owopade and Secretary, Mr Olaniran Moshood Olalekan on behalf of the Olufi of Gbongan land, Oba (Dr) Adetoyese Oyeniyi, the Baales, traditional chiefs and the entire entire members of the Association of Gbongan Progressive Elements (AGPE) which is the umbrella body for all Gbongan sons and daughters, home and abroad dissociated the people of the town from the attack on Governor Oyetola’s campaign trail.

The statement reads “we wish to tender unreserved apology over the ugly incident of transgression which reared its ugly head after the campaign trip of the state Governor in Gbongan on Monday, May 23, 2022.

“We wish to place on record that the Governor was harmoniously received at the Palace of the Olufi of Gbongan land by some traditional rulers and chiefs, district heads, AGPE members and youths.

“The period of time we shared together at the Palace was fantastically tranquil with mutual exchange of requests from both sides and the ultimate promise by the Governor to address all our yearnings and aspirations.

“The open campaign too at the heart of the town i.e. Oke Church was devoid of any harassment and embarrassment. Some of us personally witnessed the two occasions. The people of the community heralded the Governor with enthusiastic tumult. Everybody there present was in good mood and high spirit.

“To our chagrin and dismay, after the Governor had long left, there was a form of unprovoked scuffle between two titanic groups purportedly claiming unwarranted superiority. This dented the image of our town which is customarily known for peace and tranquility. It has never been in our manner to cause commotion and pandemonium. This is unprecedented and alien to us.

“Following this incident, security agencies came to town and combed the town with indiscriminate arrest of people they suspected, even to the level of apprehending guests at a naming ceremony. At our own level, we are mindfully in support of the law taking its course. Anybody found culpable of causing mayhem or participating in anything that is tantamount to disturbance of peace of the land should be brought to book. We believe also that anyone who is found innocent should be released unconditionally, after thorough investigation.

“A fact-finding meeting / press conference, presided over by Kabiyesi, was convened at the Palace of the Olufi on Friday, May 27, 2022. In attendance were the traditional chiefs, district heads, members of this Association, frontline politicians, the press, security agencies, some relatives of those arrested and members of the public.

“In the final analysis, we wish to reiterate our position that the community had no hands in the mayhem and it was found that the crisis had no political undertones.

“We once again tender unreserved apology to the Governor and the State Government for any embarrassment and inconveniences the incident might have caused them,” the statement added.
