Governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi paid a visit to the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi II, on Sunday afternoon.

The governor visited the traditional ruler days after he received a warning letter over alleged attempt to dethrone some prominent traditional rulers in Ekiti state.

KanyiDaily had reported that Governor Fayemi issued a query to 16 prominent traditional rulers in the state over alleged insubordination.

In the query, Fayemi gave the kings 72 hours to explain why they should not be removed for shunning monthly meetings of traditional rulers and government functions since August 2019.

Reacting to the query in a latter dated March 12, 2020, Alaafin of Oyo warned Fayemi against treating the traditional institution in Yorubaland with levity.

Adeyemi explained that the 16 traditional rulers were absence at the council meetings and state official functions since last year, because Fayemi appointed their subordinate as the chairman of council of Obas, and they refused to bow for him.

The Alaafin also warned Governor Fayemi to desist from meddling into the affairs of the traditional rulers.

He said unlike in some tribes, where there was nothing attached to their traditional institutions, the Yoruba traditional institution was “ancestral and spiritual.”

Oba Adeyemi said he wrote on behalf of other prominent traditional rulers in Yorubaland, including the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi; the Awujale of Ijebuland, Oba Sikiru Adetona; and the Alake of Egbaland, Oba Gbadebo Adedotun.

In the wake of this, Fayemi paid a visit to the Alaafin as shared on the official twitter account of Ekiti state Government.
