Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi, Visits The Alaafin Of Oyo, Lamidi Adeyemi, Bows Down To The Monarch

The Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi, visited the Alaafin of Oyo, Lamidi Adeyemi, on Sunday.

The Governor’s visit came barely two days after the Alaafin urged him not to degrade the Traditional Institution in Ekiti State.

Governor Fayemi had last week, issued what he called “administrative letters” to sixteen Ekiti Monarchs, whom he alleged of being absent from Council meetings and State functions, without taking excuse.

Weary about this, the Alaafin wrote to the Governor, to use diplomacy is dealing with the matter, and not use sub-cultural practices, which are alien to Yorubaland.

The Alaafin’s interference earned him a hard-worded response from the Alawe of Ilawe-Ekiti, the King whom some eleven Monarchs in Ekiti, would not have as the Chairman of the State’s Traditional Council.
