Ajimobi Meets Ayefele Over Music House Demolition, Sets Up Reconciliation Committee
Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State has set up a committee to resolve the impasse over the demolition of Yinka Ayefele’s Music House in Ibadan.
Mr Ajimobi had set up the committee at a reconciliatory meeting with the popular musician in his office on Thursday in Ibadan.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Mr Ayefele in company with some of his workers had arrived at the Governor’s Office at about 11.30 a.m.
The governor said the demolition exercise was neither a witch-hunt nor politically motivated, insisting it was due to contravention of the state ’s property laws.
Mr Ajimobi described Mr Ayefele as a good man and a responsible citizen, stressing that the next step was to find a compassionate means of resolving the issue.
He also urged Mr Ayefele to ensure that his radio station embraced ethical reportage of the issue.
The Alaafin of Oyo, Lamidi Adeyemi, who was at the Governor’s Office in company of some monarchs, also pleaded with the governor to resolve the impasse.
Earlier, Mr Ayefele had stated that his office responded to all letters forwarded to it by the state government.
He expressed regrets at not being able to see the governor, adding that the emissaries he sent failed to deliver his messages.
Mr Ayefele stated that he remains a law-abiding citizen who is ready to comply with the regulations of the state government.
The meeting, which lasted hours, was later adjourned for another day. (NAN)
