    I’m.not sure the government real want peace to rain in the town and I’m not sure he wan progress for the town if not the coronation will not be suspended because the town has been without king for almost 10years and I can bodly said it that its because the town didn’t have king that’s why we and an indigenous of the town refuse to come there’s so many good things that we suppose to come and do in that town but so far there’s no leader or king we prefer to put them in another city like Akure lags and Abuja
