“On the Alapinni matter, he is a member of the Oyo Mesi but presently indisposed. To  follow the due process, he needs to be represented in order to keep him abreast of development. He cannot be left out in the scheme things. Hence, we request for his  representative. Health is wealth. We wish him quick recovery.”

“People should watch their utterances and refrain from reckless comments capable of causing implosion.

“People entrusted with the peace and tranquility of the town should not just rush to the Press  for mischief making . It is better for one to find out about what he or she doesn’t know  from the authentic source, than going to the press  to cause disaffection.
