Controversial Yoruba mornach, Oba Abdurasheed Adewale, popular for the title of his kingship, Oluwo has engaged the country again but this time condemning the agitation of the Yoruba people for a self-determining Yoruba nation.
The agitation to him is unnecessary, not even when it is capable of exposing the southwesterners to suffering, on its seeing the light of the day. He improved on his points by saying the Yorubaland isn’t yet ready nor ripe for leadership responsibilies, not even a nation could have surfaced with the current situatiom of the southwestern part of the country.
Oba Akanbi disclosed this while delivering a goodwill message at the official launching of Osun State Youth Policy Document by the Osun State Government in Osogbo on Wednesday.
He warned the people of Osun, especially women and youths to desist from joining the agitators whenever they convoke rallies, maintaining that “Yoruba Nation will cause a great setback for the Southwest if allowed to fly.”
The monarch berated other traditional rulers in the region who are supporting the agitators in their moves and called on monarchs to ensure that the agitators didn’t get royal blessings for their secession moves.
