Some prominent South-west leaders met behind closed doors, on Tuesday, at the palace of the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, over the state of the nation.

They also discussed the arrest of Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo (a.k.a. Sunday Igboho).

We gathered that the meeting had in attendance about 30 persons, including Senator Abiodun Olujimi; Akin Osuntoun, a former political adviser to ex-President Obasanjo Obasanj, and former People’s Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate for Lagos State, Jimi Agbaje.

The Deputy Chairman, Oyo State Council of Obas, Oba Francis Alao, confirmed the meeting to the press.

Alao, who is the Olugbon of Orile Igbon, explained that the meeting was originally convened to discuss national developments but had to delve into Igboho’s arrest.

He said: “The essence of our meeting is a call by the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, that we need to come back to our roots and do things the way we use to do it successfully.

“A lot of things have gone wrong in the last few years in this country, politically, economically, socially, and we want to put things in the right perspective; that is the essence of this meeting. 

“Coincidentally, Sunday Igboho was part of what was discussed. We did not ignore the issue but it was not the main issue we discussed.

“We need to be at the forefront of what is happening in this country. We are going to make wider consultations whereby individuals, groups and others will be carried along to put things in the right direction.

“We cut across the South-west states at the meeting. We are going to make wider consultations with monarchs. It is time for us to get it right.”
