Comrade A. Adesanya, the frontline leader of the Congress of ijebu-igbo youth, has said that the youth wing of the community will leave no stone unturned until the chosen candidate for the royal stool of Orimolusi is crowned.
This is coming 27 years after the seat has remained vacant, and the ongoing crisis between the royal families who are laying claim to the throne.
The resolute and articulate crusader led a team of youth representative to make needed consultation to know who the chosen candidate for the Orimolusi stool is.
According to the comrade, the youths also went to the chief imam for consultation and support. And all the consultations were pointing at Alfred.
“We also made consultation to another priest from another states and it was the same person. We called the Ojuromi and kobakupe factions for a truce.
He also denied the allegation that one Prince Adefolabo Ayan Alfred is sponsoring the youths. He said there are rich people among the group and they cannot be bought even at gun point.
When asked that some candidates have been approaching them, he admitted that it is true and some people have already been bought.
The president said he has been receiving several threatening calls, and spiritual challenges. There were petitions against us but we have already sent invitation and agenda to the police before the petition.
“We make sure that we make decision in the interest of the group and not individual”, he said.
On the Dangote exploration exercise in Ijebu Igbo, the president stated that the first agreement made by the community with Dangote did not consider the interest of the youths, but with the present structure, the youth have been drafted into the committee and we also make our input in the new agreement.
