Rilwan Akiolu, oba of Lagos, says Nigerians should not take sides with politicians when they have disagreements.
A statement on Tuesday quoted Akiolu to have said this at the 60th birthday of Folashade Ashafa, wife of Gbenga Ashafa, senator representing Lagos east.
The monarch explained that politicians never take their differences personal and always know how to reconcile behind closed doors.
He advised Nigerians to always allow politicians settle their differences without interference.
“His imperial majesty said while people would take sides with politicians and develop enmity and grudges for supporters of rival parties, the politicians never take their differences personal and always know how to reconcile behind closed doors,” the statement read.
“He, therefore, advised all Nigerians to learn how to allow politicians settle their differences without interference or unnecessary sensationalisation of issues.
“Oba Akiolu spoke glowingly of the woman and her husband, saying Senator Gbenga Ashafa could only have achieved much because he had a good wife who gave him peace and kept the home front solid.”
Babatunde Fashola, minister of power, works and housing, and Musiliu Obanikoro, a former minister of defence,weree among those present at the occasion.
