A group, Masses Concern Alliance (MCA), has urged traditional rulers to shun partisan politics.

According to the group, the unbridled partisanship of some traditional rulers has dented the image of the institution.

A statement by its secretary, Comrade Ayo Durodola, said monarch should be neutral.

He said: “We of the Masses Concern Alliance note with disgust and disappointment, the merging nauseating body language and unbecoming utterances of some of our royal fathers in recent times as the elections draw nearer.

“Contrary to their high offices, prominent monarchs are now openly partisan and even go as far as publicly endorsing the candidates of their preferred political parties.”

The group urged royal fathers to see all candidates as their children.
