Oluwo of Iwoland, Oba Adbulrasheed Akanbi has declared that he is now The Emir of Iwo Land.
He made the declaration at the installation and turbaning ceremony of an Islamic scholar, Sheikh Yahquub Abdul-Baaqi Mohammed as first Waziri of Yoruba land on Saturday, March 31st, 2018.
” Northern traditional rulers are better behaved than their counterparts from the Southwest. Yoruba Obas are full of bickering, acrimony and enmities.”
” Yoruba traditional rulers lacks cooperation and expected royal characters and Yoruba Obas have been polarized owing to enimities.
Until Yoruba Obas come together, shun enimities and backbiting, Hausas would continue to rule Nigeria”
“I have decided to officially adopt Emir title today because I want to emulate the attitudes of Northern Emirs. They don’t begrudge themselves like Yoruba Obas.
” It will surprise you to discover that for the past two years, there has not been meeting of Yoruba traditional rulers just because of enmities. There is nothing strange in adopting Emir title. I am the Emir of Yorubaland”
