Few days ago, social media was set agog after a radio station/music house belonging to Yinka Ayefele, was demolished by Governor Ajimobi. The Oyo State Governor suffered severe backlash, as residents of Oyo went all out to lay curses on him.
However in a new report, it was gathered that Governor Ajimobi described Yinka Ayefele as a good man and a responsible citizen, stressing that the next step was to find a compassionate means of resolving the issue.
The Oyo State Governor has also set up the committee, at a reconciliatory meeting with the popular musician in his office on Thursday in Ibadan. Governor Ajimobi however stated that the demolition exercise was neither a witch-hunt nor politically motivated, insisting it was due to contravention of the state’s property laws.
At the meeting which was facilitated by a top governorship aspirant in the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr Joseph Tegbe, the Oyo State Governor urged Ayefele to ensure that his radio station embraced ethical reportage of the issue.
Governor also directed that a new building accommodating the additional parts of the building be approved for Ayefele immediately. It is expected that the ace gospel singer’s architect will liaise with officials in the department of physical planning to work out the modalities and the approval, while the fence of the building would be moved back a few metres.
