The Traditional ruler of Ilawe-Ekiti, Oba Adebanji Alabi, has cautioned Nigerian politicians to desist from acts of blackmail and foul play in their political activities.

Oba Alabi, in a statement he issued in Ado-Ekiti by his Media Adviser, Chief Ajibade Olubunmi, particularly cautioned politicians against blackmailing their counterparts aspiring for political positions, including the Presidency.

Reports say the caution came few days after a statement credited to Mr. Yinka Oyebode, the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Kayode Fayemi, accused some politicians of plotting to defame and discredit the state governor through false publications.

Alabi, the Alawe of Ilawer-Ekiti, noted that though Fayemi had not given any indication of contesting for any position after his current term of office as the Governor of Ekiti expires in October, he is well qualified to take a shot at the highest political office in the country.

The first class traditional ruler described Fayemi as a quintessential politician of note who would enjoy the support of Nigerians any time he gave the indication of contesting for a higher position.

Alabi advised politicians to stop using faceless people to blackmail one another.
