The Awujale of Ijebuland, Oba Sikiru Adetona, has expressed concern over some politicians who are using Ijebu name for selfish gains, over the 2019 Ogun state governorship poll.
The Awujale who said he does not involve himself in partisan politics, asked Ijebu indigene to stay away from such people.
The paramount ruler spoke on the issue at the annual Christian prayers organized by the Ijebu zone of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Ijebu Ode.
He recalled that some politicians visited him recently in the palace, to discuss the Ogun State 2019 governorship poll, and told him that Ijebus are about to be sidelined in producing the next governor.
The Awujale said he wishes that Ijebu becomes the next governor, but he is mindful that the politicians are promoting personal interests, and not the interests of Ijebuland.
The monarch however, asked Ijebus to pray for the 2019 polls, saying it is still possible for the Ijebuland to produce the next Ogun State governor.
