Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi has debunked claims that he is planning to dethrone some traditional rulers in Ekiti.

The Governor said he only issued queries which were purely about administrative matters.

The governor, in a statement made available to newsmen in Ado-Ekiti by his Chief Press Secretary, Yinka Oyebode described reports suggesting dethronement as not only misleading but malicious. 

“Any rumour claiming that Governor Fayemi is planning to dethrone any Oba in Ekiti State is a deliberate and malicious misrepresentation of the true situation. It is obviously an attempt from opposition to create chaos and confusion between the Ekiti State Government and the good and law abiding people of Ekiti State” the governor clarified.

 

“The attention of the Governor of Ekiti State, Dr Kayode Fayemi has been drawn to some misleading news reports being circulated in some online blogs alleging plans by the state government to dethrone some traditional rulers in the state. 

“The reports, which are products of the bloggers’ hastiness, grossly misrepresent the development. It thus becomes imperative to state the true position of things as follows” the statement reads in part. 

It added that “the Ekiti State Bureau of Chieftaincy Affairs is responsible for the coordination, management and welfare of the Traditional Council and its affairs. 

“The Bureau briefed the Governor, on the prolonged absence of some members of the State’s Traditional Council meetings as well as traditional council meetings at the local government level. Mr Governor directed that the Bureau should write the affected traditional rulers to find out reasons for their absence.”
