The Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi has come out to say that the division among Yoruba traditional rulers is because of politicians who infiltrated the ranks of the monarchs.

He revealed this in a recent statement issued by his Oluwo’s media aide, Alli Ibrahim, during a visit to Iwo.

According to him, he is very ready to aid unity among the traditional rulers with all his utmost strength because that is needed at this time.

He added that his relationship with Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrasheed Adewale is cordial and always symbiotic, and their recent meeting will surely seal the affinity between the two ancient cities.

His words, “The bridge of peace in Yourbaland was affected through the infiltration of politicking into the Institution by politicians of the old Oyo Empire. The challenge from every quarter as it equally comes from Oluwo is a challenge to rise to that occassion and do the much needful without retraction”

“I commend Oluwo for his courage, tenacity and zeal in standing tall despite enormous distractions stage managed by his few subjects. I had tougher experience in the first 20years of my reign, cry rough and turbulent. It is what Yoruba will call (Ojumo kan, ogun kan) one day, one war.”

“Iwo is an ancient city with cordial and understandable relationship with Oyo. I’m not new to Iwo. I visit occassionally. Iwo is rich in culture, tradition and religious. Ordinarily, Iwo should have be the capital of Osun State following their traditional, political and religious sagacity”

“I’m pleased to visit Oluwo again, felt at home and give him words of encouragement in shaping new course of hope for the Yoruba race.”

“Yoruba traditional institution is porous, one without unity and lacking the strength to protect and secure Yorubaland. It is disheartening there was no formidable central council of Obas to issue statement of appeal and command where necessary most especially as it relates to the recent destruction that accompanied the recent EndSARS Protest in the South Western Nigeria”

“Our unity is not only strength but also greenlight to the security, protection and progressive hope of Yorubaland and her generations. I want to charge and appeal to the respected Alaafin of Oyo to use his traditional paraphernalia and stronghold to bring out olive branch branch and unite actors in the council”

“Baba Alaafin, I appreciate your visit, it is a gesture that must be reciprocated. Your worth is unquantifiable. I’m ready to complement your efforts at fashioning a new map for the progress of Yorubaland”
