Following the controversy over the partial demolition of Yinka Ayefele’s Music House in Ibadan, Oyo state gubernatorial aspirant, Mr Joseph Tegbe waded into the matter, seeking a civil resolution.
The partial demolition of radio station on Sunday, 19 September by the Oyo State government generated much public outcry as it seemed as if the State governor, His Excellency Abiola Ajimobi was personally involved in the matter.
While the state government has insisted that the popular entertainer did break the law because he started his radio station with out relevant approval by the government, many were not satisfied with the explanation. Ayefele approached the court on the issue and hearing has been fixed for September 12, 2018.
However, last week Thursday, Mr. Tegbe led the musician to Governor’s Office for a meeting that he facilitated. From immediate observations when it was concluded, it seemed to have yielded fruits of an amicable resolution. Governor Ajimobi and Yinka Ayefele came out of the meeting looking pleased. It is hopeful that all matters surrounding the musician’s radio station will be resolved satisfactorily.
Joseph Olasunkanmi Tegbe, a civil engineer and Senior Partner with KPMG, is a governorship aspirant under the All Progressives Congress (APC). He is currently vying for the party’s ticket for the 2019 governorship elections in Oyo state.
