Ekiti indigenes protest against Fayose’s sales of Oba’s market

Ekiti indigenes under the auspices of Ado Ewi Indigenes Rights Protection Forum and Ado Ekiti Youth Coalition, on Thursday protested against Governor Ayodele Fayose for selling the Oba’s Market in the town to traders, rather than allowing the local government to rent it out to users.

The protesters, who took their agitations to Ewi of Ado Ekiti, Oba Rufus Adejugbe , said the indigenes were not comfortable seeing Governor Fayose selling off their heritage without due consultation with the leaders of the community.

The market, located in front of Ewi’s market and formerly being controlled by Ado Local Government, was demolished in 2016 by Fayose and rebuilt into an ultra modern structure at the cost of about N3 billion.
