Chairman of the Southwest Governors’ Forum, who’s also the Executive Governor of Ondo State, Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu on Sunday visited shasha, where the clash between the Hausa/Yoruba took place.
Governor Akeredolu who was led to the Shasha market by his Oyo State counterpart, Governor Seyi Makinde, under the auspices of the Southwest Governors’ Forum, pleaded with elders among the Yoruba Community in the area to call the youth to order as efforts are being intensified by government to find lasting solution to the avoidable violence which occurred last Friday.
Governor Akeredolu said: “We have come to plead with you that no matter how angry, we should not react violently. I know many things may get us angry, but as we know, we have been living together for long. Let us think about the past, let us consider our peaceful coexistence in the past. Let us be calm.”
