Ondo Govt Speaks On ‘Plan’ To Install New Alale Of Akungba

Published

on

Ondo state government has dismissed speculations that it plans to install a claimant, Prince Isiaka Oseni from Agure-Mokun as the Alale of Akungba town.

News of the rumored enthronement caused tension in the town last week.

The Court of Appeal sitting in Akure had dismissed a stay of execution application and other motions filed against the earlier judgement of the court that recognized Agure-Mokun lineage as part of ruling families to the stool of Alale chieftaincy.

Reacting, Commissioner for Information, Yemi Olowolabi said he was not aware of any plan to install a certain individual.

“I am not aware of the plan by government to install an Oba. The governor is a Senior Advocate.

“Our government is law abiding and would not do anything to jeopardize the rule of law.

““The government does not install an Oba. It is the people that install their Oba.

“Since the case is in court, the government will follow the due process”, Vanguard quoted him as saying.

In his reaction, Oba Ajimo said that government would not subvert the rule of law.

Ajimo, in a statement, said: “There is no plan by the Ondo State government to interfere or tamper with the chieftaincy title of Alale of Akungba.

“The legal tussle over the chieftaincy title of Alale of Akungba-Akoko is pending at the Supreme Court of Nigeria where an application for injunction pending appeal has been filed in Appeal No SC/155/2018.

“All indigenes of Akungba-Akoko should maintain peace and order. There is no plan by the governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, to tamper with Alale of Akungba chieftaincy.

“The Supreme Court will soon determine the matter and justice shall prevail.”
