The oyo state government has begun the reconstruction of veteran musician, Yinka Ayefele’s music house in Ibadan which was demolished three months ago. Bolaji Tunji, Special adviser to the governor on communication and strategy, said the government intervened because of the state building code by the management of the music house and the personal appeal by Ayefele to governor Ajimobi.
In his words:
“Following Mr Ayefele’s admittance to breach of procedures in the construction of the building and his subsequent apologies, as well as the intervention of well-meaning members of the public, the governor agreed to tamper justice with mercy”
He said that the governor’s approval of the reconciliation of the issue was communicated to Ayefele on October 19, 2018. “It is necessary to put it on records that the governor or the state government was not out to witch-hunt the popular musician or anybody but had acted to safeguard members of the public who daily ply the roads contiguous to the music house” Mr Bolaji added
