Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, has said traditional rulers are ready to work with President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration to restore peace and unity in the country.
Adeyemi, who made this assertion at a gathering of Yoruba leaders on Thursday, in Ibadan, called for collective efforts toward restoring peaceful and unity in the country.
He said that Nigerians must support President Buhari to rebuild the nation because he cannot do it alone.
According to the monarch, “We have had our son as the president who never did all we wanted for us. Send us to Buhari and we will deliver the message,’’ he said.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the gathering which also featured a presentation of the book `Awo’, was organised by Mr Alao Adedayo, the publisher of Alaroye, a Yoruba newspaper.
NAN reports that the book `Awo’ is the Yoruba translation of late Chief Obafemi Awolowo’s autobiography.
The monarch cautioned the people not to blame the president, but support him to achieve the desired results for Nigeria, saying Buhari was doing his best for the nation.
“Stop blaming Buhari, we will work with him to achieve the desired nation.
“We have had our son as the president who never did all we wanted for us. Send us to Buhari and we will deliver the message,’’ he said.
