Ibadan family monarchs, popularly called the authentic Mogajis, have issued a warning to the governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi over his query to some traditional rulers in his State.
The Mogagis also disclosed their intention to visit the deposed Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Lamido Sanusi.
Chief Wale Oladoja, who disclosed this in a statement on behalf of the group, warned that the governor should shy away from any action that would devalue traditional institutions.
The Mogagis said;
“We are surprised to read that the governor of Ekiti State is also considering attacking traditional institution in his state. Attacking traditional institution is synonymous with abuse of office.
“Many of these (royal) fathers have sacrificed for the throne and they deserve respect. Fayemi should not import politics of bitterness from other tribes to Yorubaland. We respect our monarch and we won’t do anything to hurt them.”
Regarding the deposition of the former Emir of Kano, the Mogajis said;
“Ganduje is the governor today, but he should be reminded that he may not be there tomorrow. He should not destroy the traditional institution in Kano State before he leaves office.
“When has it become a crime for our traditional leaders to say the truth because of intimidation?”
