NAN also reports that event with the theme, `Youth and Economic Challenges : The Way Forward, ’ was attended by Gov. Abiola Ajimobi and the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi.

Also at the event were members of the State Executive Council as well as traditional rulers from Ibadan.

The governor, who read President Muhammadu Buhari’s speech, stated that no state or nation could develop or witness progress in disunity and chaos.

He cautioned those promoting and fuelling discord across the country to desist, saying the nation was better positioned to make progress in its multi-ethnic and multi-religious diversities.
