Wasiu Ayinde and his disrespect of the Oluwo of Iwo, Telu 1


Whilst you occur to litter, jump queues, power on the curb, settle on stationeries from the office dwelling for non-public exercise, procure receipts for reimbursement on nights not spent in a hotel, collude with suppliers to inflate costs and so forth, we invent disorder within the machine.

When these “small” execrable acts snowballs, all people finds a bogeyman within the executive. Who’s the executive? Is it Buhari that causes you to litter the streets? Is he the one who is making you are taking? Whilst you stink up the realm to your small ways, you may possibly presumably presumably additionally be a contributor to the rot in Nigeria.

My other folks converse when there are not any extra elders, the society trip execrable. And not using a culture, there may even be no id. Our ragged institutions reinforces our culture without extend and subliminally. When the Ooni, Ọba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, Ojaja II was as soon as installed, Baba Obasanjo prostrated for him. He was as soon as in his early forties then.

For Obasanjo, it wasn’t in regards to the Ooni. It was as soon as in regards to the throne of his forefathers. Of unhurried, political actors accept as true with helped in destroying our ragged institutions by infusing money to manual the desire of kings for political fabricate. It has ended in placing in contributors with not as a lot as stellar qualities as top quality Obas. Every person knows that. On the opposite hand, we are able to’t come up with the money for to degrade it further.

Abdulrasheed Akanbi

About per week ago, a video made rounds on social media by which Wasiu Ayinde Marshall challenged the 16th Oluwo of Iwo Ọba Abdulrasheed Adewale Akanbi Ilufemiloye Telu 1, in a disrespectful design, for not moving him to invent at Chief Dele Momodu’s chieftaincy set up ceremony. We the Yoruba exercise plural pronoun for elders and other folks as a change of authority. He overtly outdated “o” disrespectfully for the Oluwo, shaking his hand.

It’s grand that he was as soon as extra reverent to Oba Saheed Ademola Elegushi Kusenla III of Ikate-Elegushi than the Oluwo. For the document, the Oluwo stool dates relief to the fifteenth century while the Elegushi stool is good 28 years ragged. Oba Saheed Ademola Elegushi is the 2d Elegushi after he succeeded his father who was as soon as an Idejo chief sooner than becoming king.

The unhurried Oba Yekini Elegushi was as soon as made a white cap chief on November 1, 1990, and was as soon as crowned a king on February 4, 1993, as Oba Yekini Adeniyi Elegushi, Kusenla II. For reference, Iwo is 7,543 sq. kilometers while Ikate-Elegushi is 135 sq. kilometers.

After we name Bishops, my Lord Bishop, Justices as Lords, Kings as Majesty, and so forth, the reverence isn’t very for them on my own, it is a ways additionally for the office. That you just may possibly presumably presumably additionally be a pal would not preclude you from the accurate etiquette. You may presumably exercise Sir or Ma but when addressing them in public surroundings, encounter the accurate title.

In Yoruba culture, when someone turns into a king, even while you occur to performed football collectively as children, he’s now your elder that you will want to forever prostrate for. The Yoruba has a facet for respect accurate fancy the Eastern. The Eastern usually are not shedding theirs, why must silent we?

It sounds as if, from the video, Wasiu Ayinde respects money bigger than space. What a disgrace that is. The man is closely immodest too. I snatch his heart-broken strive at proving he’s bigger than Ayinde Barrister alongside with his hoarse, staccato of a enlighten, equivalent to the croaking of a spawning toad. We now accept as true with had sufficient of his conceit. He must silent pause already. I loathe nonsense!
