The Special Adviser to Ondo State Governor on Public and Inter Governmental Relations, Dr Olubunmi Ademosu has asked the paramount ruler of Akure Kingdom, Oba Aladetoyinbo Ogunlade Aladelusi to descend heavily on indigenes of the town find using any social media platform to bring the Akure backward.

The “No Nonsense” Special Adviser talks tough while feeding question from newsmen during the 10th Anniversary of Akure Reform Ambassador (ARA) held at Ruby’s Court Event Centre, Akure where she was honoured with Leadership Excellence Award.

The anniversary theme is ” Akure: Bridging the Gap between Growth and Development”, a lecture delivered by Engr Tunji Light Arimoyo. Dr Olubunmi Ademosu is from the highly respected Elemo family in Akure.

Speaking, Ademosu said rather than clamping down on people using social media platform to speak ills of Akure Kingdom, some disgruntled Akure Indigenes will be praising and supporting the bad feelings against the town with their comments.

“If you look at some platforms, Akoko descendants will be raining curses on Akure people but because of selfish interest and what our people will eat, you see them giving thumbs up and praising such bad comments, all these must stop”.

She asked Deji of Akure to sanctions whoever found wanting and working against the interest of Akure Indigenes, saying the ancient town can’t develop with disunity and lack of love that have eroded the town.

Ademosu stated further that, there should be separation between politics and interest of Akure Kingdom, noting that some people are hiding under politics to disrespect elders and true born daughters and sons of the town.

According to her, ” Enough is enough; all the backbiting, operation bring him or her down must stop. We must put a stop to disrespect of our elders because if not check, I might be a victim tomorrow but before such happen, I will tell them that I am from a revered Elemo Family that no one can push aside”.

While charging Akure Indigenes to be united and love one another, she said using social media platform to speak ills of the town and the elders will only draw Akure backward.

“I can only appeal to all the sons and daughters of Akure to love one another and be their brother’s keeper; we must not allow what we are going to eat today and sell future of our town and unborn generation”.

“Akure people are neither beggars nor political nuisance; it is high time our people stop being used as thugs and look for better work they can be proud of. Our ladies have turned to prostitute and beggars. We must retrace our step because Akure that I used to know are noble people and not beggars”.

She charged Akure Indigenes to always preach love, peace and unity, saying the development of Akure is a collective business of everyone.

Meanwhile, the Akure Reform Ambassadors also recognized other notable sons of the town which includes Chief Reuben Fasoranti, Chief Olu Falae, Engr Sunday Falae, Mr Tolu Adedayo, Mr Michael Oshodi, Chief Olatunbosun Miller among others.

The Group also presented posthumous award to Late Adedayo Omolafe Expensive for community development.

Responding, Late Omolafe’s Wife thanked the organiser of the award for recognizing her late husband, charging people to do well and lay a lasting legacy that will live after them.
