Allow Jonathan to decide confab’s decisions, says Olugbo

THE Chairman of Yoruba Oba Conflict Resolution Committee, Olugbo of Ugboland, Oba Obateru Akinruntan, has urged Nigerians to allow the President Goodluck Jonathan to determine the mode of ratification of the National Delegates Conference‘s decisions.
The monarch told reporters that “whatever method that would be used to ratify   the decisions reached at the conference must be determined by the Federal Government.
“Be it through Referendum or Parliamentary approach for the ratification of the decisions,   the government which surprised everybody by conveying the conference should be allowed to determine the way forward.”
Oba Akinruntan , who praised the government for allowing the delegates to deliberate on the national questions, said that Nigerians can comment after the final decision might have been issued.
The Olugbo said the advisory role being played traditional rulers was not enough. He described them as custodians of the truth.
 “In the Regional Government era, the Obas played roles in the governance of the country. It was through that the late Ooni of Ife, Adesoji Aderemi, became a governor,” he said.
He also spoke on the existing peace and unity among the Yoruba Obas, saying: “It is as a result of the mediatory and conflict resolution efforts of our committee.”
