The Oba of Lagos, HRH Rilwan Akiolu has called on Nigerians not to fight or kill themselves for any politician.

The monarch also said that politicians always have a way of settling their differences behind closed doors.

Oba Akioulu said this on Tuesday, May 30, 2017, while speaking at the 60th birthday celebration of Mrs. Folashade Ashafa.

Mrs. Ashafa is the wife of Senator Gbenga Ashafa, the Senator representing Lagos East Senatorial District in the Senate.

According to a statement released by the Oba’s media team, the monarch said “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.

“He, therefore, advised all Nigerians to learn how to allow politicians settle their differences without interference or unnecessary sensationalisation of issues.
