Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has said that a new Ogoga of Ikere would be named and installed within the next 14 days.
Governor Fayose made the pronouncement after a meeting with the king makers and other leaders from the community on Saturday at the Government House, Ado Ekiti.
In a statement issued by the Chief Press Secretary, CPS, to the
Governor, Mr Idowu Adelusi in Ado Ekiti yesterday explained that fourteen king makers were present at the meeting and that they explained to the governor how they had voted to select a new Ogoga, stressing that 10 out of the 14 king makers expressed support for Prince Jimi Adu.
The governor thereafter stated that, after further consultations,
procedures and considerations of information at his disposal, a new Ogoga would be named and installed within the next 14 days.
He advised those who might not be satisfied with the decision that would be made to approach the court rather than embarking on crises.
Governor Fayose noted that the security agency would not allow anyone to throw the community and by extension the state into chaos, saying the peace of the state was paramount to him.
He reiterated that he had no preferred candidate and would rather follow the decision of the kingmakers which by tradition are vested with the power to select the new Ogoga, saying that no one should allow his personal interest to override the will of the majority.
