The chairman of Osun State Council of Traditional Rulers, Oba Adekunle Aromolaran has called for sustenance of the existing peace between farmers and the herdsmen in the state.
Aromolaran said this in an interview with journalists shortly after the meeting of Council of Traditional Rulers in the state held at the Centre for Black Culture and International Understanding (CBCIU) in Osogbo, Osun State.
The monarch described mutual understanding between farmers and herdsmen as a panacea to the incessant clashes between farmers and herdsmen in some parts of the country including the Yoruba land.
The traditional ruler cautioned against trespassing into other peoples’ property by some Fulani men and urged security agencies to enforce necessary laws in order to prevent breach of peace.
On the controversy surrounding his position as the chairman of the council sequel to the death of the immediate past Ooni of Ife, Oba Okuade Sijuwade who was the permanent chairman of the body, Aromolaran said all the Obas in the state made him their new chairman.
When asked whether he would relinquish the chairmanship position to the new Ooni of Ife, Owamiran said, “I would not answer that question. I did not beg for the position and it was not a position to be contested. When the late Ooni Sijuwade was alive, I was the one doing most of the work. You can see that all the Obas in the state are behind me judging by the attendant in this meeting”.
Aromolaran said the traditional rulers in Osun state are willing to assist the state governor, Mr Rauf Aregbesola to address some of the issues bedevilling the smooth running of the state.
