Monarch advises politicians against heating up polity

By Dayo Johnson

AKURE—AHEAD of the 2011 election, the political class has been advised against heating up the polity with comments that could lead to violence and anarchy.

A traditional ruler, the Onidogun of Idogun, Oba Moses Ekundayo Bakare, who spoke at the inauguration of some boreholes donated to some communities in the local government area by a Labour Party House of Representatives aspirant for Owo/Ose Federal Constituency, Olufemi Adekanmbi, noted that the success or otherwise of the next election depended on the manner with which politicians handle the preparations for the election.

Oba Bakare said instead of causing violence and crises across the country by employing the youths, it was high time politicians designed programmes that would be beneficial to their communities.

He urged politicians to always bring dividends of democracy to their constituencies instead of enriching their purse and that of immediate family members.

Aside from Idogun, hand pump boreholes were sunk in Afo, Imeri and Ido-Ani wards two and three by Hon. Adekanmbi, all in Ose Local government.
