Queen Wuraola appealed for continuous harmonious relationship between Hausas and Yorubas in Ile-Ife, noting that “the dead cannot be brought back, but those onus who are still living can live a happy life.
The leadership of the Hausa community expressed gratitude on her visit and promised to resuscitate the previous love and spirit of oneness that was existing before the crisis .
Earlier, the Queen also met with the representatives of Ife development board.
The Queen’s visit to both sides was facilitated by the National Commission for Refugees, Migrants and Internally Displaced Persons (NCRMI), who brought relief materials for the Yoruba and Hausa communities.
