The foremost Club in Idanreland-Club 66 Idanre has demanded for apology from  the Governor of Ondo State, Mr. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu SAN for insulting the paramount ruler of Idanre Kingdom, Oba Frederick  Adegunle Aroloye Arubiefin 1V over the alleged taking over of the forest reserve by some companies.
The Club in a statement by its president,  Dr Anthony Omolola alleged that Governor Akeredolu used some uncomplimentary remarks during a telephone conversation between him and the 96-year old Owa of Idanre over the forest reserve.
Dr. Omolola said the Governor, as a Yoruba son ought to have been modest and diplomatic while speaking to elders and traditional rulers who “are the custodian of the people’s culture, heritage and values.”
“An insult on the Kabiyesi, the Owa of Idanre Kingdom is an insult on Idanre People and we will in all it’s entirety reject such”.
“We believe that the ancestral land/forest of the people can not be shared or allocated to groups or companies without the proper discussion and agreement with Kabiyesi, Community leaders and the people who are the custodian of the land/forest,considering the socio, cultural,moral and economic implications”,
“We demand from His Excellency, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, unreserved apology to our Kabiyesi”, he stated.
