Recalls that Igboho, on Wednesday recounts why he shunned the Ooni summoned to his Palace.
FFK who seems not too pleasant with Igboho’s choice of words on the monarch said:
“I just spoke with Sunday Igboho & he confirmed to me that what he said about our reverred Ooni of Ife was said in the heat of the moment.
“He expressed his regrets & I was relieved to hear that. To err is human & to forgive is divine. I appeal to Kabiyesi to forgive him.
He further stated:
“For the record let me state clearly & categorically that NO Ooni of Ife, whether living or dead, has EVER been a slave of the Fulani & neither will they ever be. I can also confirm that my friend & brother Seyi Makinde, the Governor of Oyo state, is a deeply courageous individual who would never bow before anyone let alone be a slave to the Fulani.
“We, in the SW must remain united in our quest for liberty and justice and in the face of the common enemy and we must move forward as one.
“No-one can dispute the fact that
Sunday has fought hard and done well.
“He has won the respect of all and sundry in Yorubaland and he has inspired millions of our people all over the world.
“Let us forgive him for this slip and continue to support and pray for him.”
