The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, on Saturday warned against violence during the forth coming elections.
Ogunwusi warned that there was no gain in shedding of blood, adding that a dead person can’t be useful to the society.
The traditional ruler issued the warning at the Grand-finale of New Year Prayer Service organised by Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Ile- Ife Chapter, at Afenworo Park, Enuwa Square, Ile-Ife, Osun State.
According to Ooni, “There is no gain in shedding of blood, trouble and violence. Anyone who dies cannot come back to be useful to the society again.”
The monarch urged stakeholders to maintain peace and orderliness in the forthcoming elections, stressing that ” it is only God that enthrones and put his choice on the throne.”
Oba Ogunwusi further called on politicians to give peace a chance and allow peaceful coexistence.
He stated that if truly politicians want to serve humanity, they should desist from do or die affairs.
The traditional ruler urged youths to struggle for their future and run away from politicians that want to misuse them for political violence and selfish interest.
