“We have also all resolved not to participate in any election, henceforth stop paying our taxes until our rights are restored; any of our indigenes that accept political appointment will be disowned.
“We are engaging in our rightful agitations because it is our future that is at stake and our inalienable right to self-determination.
We are sure “I want to assure you all that our amiable governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has no hand in this purported location of the council secretariat at Ijesa-Isu-Ekiti he will right the wrong,” the traditional ruler said.
He appealed to the state government to relocate the headquarters to Usin-Ekiti, where the seven communities had initially agreed that it should be sited.
The seven traditional rulers had on Sept. 8 led their subjects to stage a peaceful protest, expressing dissatisfaction on the location of the headquarters in Ijesa-Isu-Ekiti.
