A prominent socio political organization, the Yoruba Elders Union (YEU) has appealed to the President elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the National Chairman of the Action Alliance (AA), Dr Adekunle Rufai Omoaje to reconcile and settle their rifts in the interest of the Yoruba nation.
A chieftain of the association, Dr Joshua Foluso Oguntuase made the plea in a statement made available to newsman on Friday.
Oguntuase who is also a religious leader also called on Tinubu and Omoaje to withdraw their suits and settle their cases out of court.
Besides, the elder statesman also called on the leadership of the Action Alliance to reach a truce with the Independent National Electoral Commission and settle their differences out of court.
Oguntuase cited the petition of the Action Alliance before the Presidential Election Petition Court/Tribunal as “the most notorious of all the petitions, but simplest to settle out of court.”
He said it is not prejudicial or subjudice for a volunteer, to come into the matter at any stage, for out of court settlement.
“One of the primary objective of the Yoruba Elders Union is to defend the interest of the Yoruba race as their leaders. The current National Chairman of Action Alliance is Dr Adekunle Rufai Omo-Aje as recognized by the Court, and the current President-elect of Nigeria as announced by INEC is Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. Therefore, an average Yoruba leader should seek a proposition of Dispute Resolution Approach (DRA) between Omoaje and Tinubu,”
He said the AA’s petition before the tribunal can jeopardize the victory of Tinubu, hence the need to resolve the matter out of court, especially in the interest of the Yoruba race.
