- The Sarakis have been advised to observe decorum in their comments over the Ile Arugbo debacle
- A leading pro-democracy group in Kwara state, Kwara Must Change, offered the advise
- At the moment, the Kwara state government and the Sarakis have opted for out of court settlement
A leading pro-democracy group in Kwara state, Kwara Must Change has expressed doubt in the possibility of an amicable settlement in the Ile Arugbo debacle between the Kwara state government and the Saraki family.
According to the group, it would be difficult to find any none legal solution on the matter because of the outburst of former Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki and his sister, Senator Gbemisola Saraki who is the minister of state for transport.
The group stated that claims by the Sarakis that their family is being witch-hunted by the Kwara state government have generated controversy.
In a statement by its coordinator, Comrade Yusuf Olatunji, on Sunday, January 26, the group said that the move by a legal representative to the Saraki family, exploring out of court settlement is a welcome development, but it doubts if such move is not coming late and at the wrong time.
“That misguided outburst, which should be the last resort, came first and practically made an amicable settlement impossible,” the group said.
Yusuf concluded that, as they hope for a positive outcome in the proposed resolution, members of the Saraki dynasty should learn decorum in public utterances.
Recall that Kwara Must Change recently called on the public to disregard claims being made in some quarters that some women were attacked during the demolition of Ile Arugbo.
According to the group, the claim is spurious, strange, unfounded and outrightly none existent.
Meanwhile, the Kwara state government and the Saraki family have agreed to settle out of court over the issue.
Counsels to both parties during the hearing on Friday, January 24, told the Kwara state High Court that all the parties have agreed to an out-of-court settlement.
The settlement might not be unconnected to reports that President Muhammadu Buhari has waded into the feud and has gone ahead to set up a private investigative committee to examine the circumstances that warranted the demolition.
