The Ooni of Ife, Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi has appealed to all the stakeholders in the ongoing presidential election to be matured in their conducts in order for peace to reign.
The Ooni in a press release signed by Moses Olafare, his Director of Media and Publicity on Tuesday in Ile-Ife, explained that Nigerians have been waiting patiently for the electioneering period to be over for them to resume with their normal activities.
"The imbroglio developing from the Presidential election of Saturday is unnecessary, distracting and totally unacceptable.
"The nation does not need it at the moment. All over the world, elections are known to be disputed.
"And the tension must be addressed in a way in line with law of the land and in accordance with the best global practices.
"All politicians involved and their respective political parties without exception not to do anything capable of heating up the polity as this dangerously amounts to torching up a simmering fire of Nigerian cohesion."
He also charged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to remain on the path of fairness, equity and justice as it completes the process of announcing the result of the election.
The monarch urged Nigerians to remain patient and understanding of the fact that the country is far bigger than all entities and personalities.
"Nigerians have suffered enough and any form of uproar will add to the already harsh condition of living for Nigerians especially the poor and vulnerable amongst us.
"I equally urge our youths to resist all pressure to be utilized by unpatriotic elements as thugs."
