Two highest ranking Yoruba monarchs, Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi and the Alaafin of Oyo Oba Lamidi Adeyemi met with Rauf Aregbesola on Tuesday with a view to putting a close to the rift between him and Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
The meeting was held in one of the private residences of the Alaafin in Ibadan, Oyo State.
The meeting which was at the instance of the monarchs, according to sources close to the palace noted that the reconciliation efforts were going on well and as intended, and that both parties having shown interest in putting their differences behind them and moving ahead in the interest of all, Osun and yorubaland will soon be fully reconciled.
Events of the last weeks had shown that the calls from all well meaning persons of influence across political and religious circuits on Tinubu and Aregbesola to tow the path of peace and reconcile in the overall interest of all, appear to be yielding positive results with the meeting called by these high ranking monarchs and the attendance of the meeting by Aregbesola.
As things unfold it appears that the needed peace and harmony is beginning to return to the progressive fold and the All Progressive Congress (APC) in the South West will get even stronger ahead of the Osun election.
