The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, has warned politicians against all forms of violence in the forthcoming general elections.A report by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) said Oba Ogunwusi gave the warning at the grand-finale of New Year Prayer Service organised by the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Ile- Ife Chapter, at Afenworo Park, Enuwa Square, Ile-Ife, yesterday.
According to Ooni, there is no gain in shedding blood, trouble and violence as anyone that dies cannot come back to be useful to the society again.He charged everyone to maintain peace and orderliness in the forthcoming elections, saying it is only God that puts His choice on the throne.
The royal father admonished politicians to give peace a chance and allow peaceful coexistence in all ramifications, noting that if they truly want to serve humanity, politicians should desist from making politics a do or die affair.
