Alaafin of Oyo, Mr. Lamidi Adeyemi, has said he is ready to make peace with rival Yoruba Obas to ensure the enthronement of peace amongst them.

The monarch and Ooni of Ife, Oba Okunade Sijuade have been at daggers' drawn for ages over the control of Yorubaland and this has resulted in verbal outbursts and heated arguments on the origin of Oyo and Ife.

The Alafin who was speaking during the visit of Olugbo of Ugbo Kingdom in Ilaje Local Government area of Ondo State, Mr. Fredrick Obateru Akinruntan, over the fire that gutted his palace.

The Monarch used the occasion to clear the air over some of his controversial utterances.

According to him, in the history of Yoruba there was never a time that Oyo was under any other town in Yorubaland.

"It is only a person that is having something to hide that will not want to hold meeting. I'm ready, for the sake of our people, because where two elements fight, it is the grass there that suffer”, he said.

The Oyo monarch maintained that Oyo had never been subservient to any other Yoruba town, Oba Adeyemi said,  “I can give 100 empirical evidences, spanning over five centuries to defend my position without looking into any book".

"It is only a person that is having something to hide that will not want to hold meeting. I'm ready, for the sake of our people, because where two elements fight, it is the grass there that suffer”

Mr. Adeyemi also lauded Mr. Akinrantan's mediatory role and his resolve to ensure that Yoruba Obas live in unity and oneness.

Oba Akinruntan is the Chairman of a  committee set up to broker peace amongst the feuding monarchs in the South West region.

Speaking earlier, Mr. Akinruntan described the fire incident as a disaster that not only affected the Alaafin and the people of Oyo, but the entire Yoruba people.

The Ugbo monarch, led other Obas and his Chiefs to the ancient Oyo town.

Conveying President Jonathan's message to the Oyo Oba over the inferno that destroyed some of the artefacts in the palace, Mr. Akinruntan said the president promised to help in rebuilding the burnt area of the palace.
