Kwara Governor Didn’t Ask Monarchs To Shun Opposition Politicians – Olofa
The Olofa of Offa in Offa local government area of Kwara State, Oba Mufutau Gbadamosi Esuwoye, has faulted reports in some quarters that the state governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, instructed traditional rulers in the state to shun opposition leaders.
The monarch said traditional rulers making such unfounded claim were on their own and not saying the truth.
Olofa made this clarification while receiving former President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, his wife and entourage in his palace in Offa town.
The Sarakis and their entourage were in Offa to condole with the Oyawoye family and the entire community over the death of a renowned Professor of Geology, Prof. Jamiu Oyawoye.
Oba Esuwoye, a first class monarch said he suspended his earlier scheduled engagements to receive Saraki, in order not to give room for any false speculation.
“When I was informed that Dr. Saraki was coming to Offa today, I had planned another engagement but had to suspend it.
“The reason is that people might misconstrue it to be an instruction from the Kwara State Governor, Mallam Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq.
“But in all honesty, the governor has never told any of us to stay away from hosting opposition leaders in the state. The traditional rulers who did that were acting on their own,” the monarch said.
Olofa said that traditional rulers are all governments in power, adding that those running away from their palaces because of hosting opposition leaders were not being sincere with their position as no one knows what tomorrow holds.
The Olofa, therefore, expressed appreciation to Saraki and his wife, Barr. Toyin Ojora-Saraki, and their entourage for the visit.
