Oyo State governor, Abiola Ajimobi yesterday promised to rebuild the demolished Music House owned by Evangelist Yinka Ayefele.
This came as the estranged relationship among Governor Ajimobi; a former governor of the state, Chief Rashidi Ladoja and another former governor, Otunba Adebayo Alao-Akala was, yesterday, set aside at the 90th birthday celebration of the Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Saliu Adetunji, as the event brought the trio together.
The governor, however, prayed for the Olubadan for more longetivity and that his continued reign would witness more development in Ibadanland.
On reactions that trailed the demolition of Yinka Ayelefe’s Music House, Ajimobi pledged the state government’s commitment to assist the renowned gospel singer in rebuilding the demolished building and also give necessary logistics, adding that Ayefele had held a peace talk with him while he visited him in his office.
He said: “I thank God for the life of the Olubadan for clocking 90 years because he is my father. I pray that the ancient city of Ibadan will witness more development during his reign.”
“I want to say that the imbroglio between the state government and Yinka Ayefele over the demolition of his Music House has been resolved. And I pledge the government’s commitment to assist him.”
