Like you, I believe this is the way to go.
But wait a minute...I think we may have to leave Lagos out of the equation to begin with. The combo of Lagos-based politicians who fear being subsumed and E-siders that only pay lip service to regionalism, are likely to rail against any attempt to merge with Ogun state.
(b) a Referendum is conducted in each of the States proposing to merge with 75% of the eligible voters in each of those States approving the merger;
Nah, we need to demonstrate the benefits of a merger with our interior states first - lest we end up with some semblance of the much derided sene-gambia union.

You are welcome Sir.
Long Live The Eleko.
|Re: Yoruba Commonwealth and Politics by Katsumoto: 8:39pm On Nov 24, 2015|
Interesting, I would have thought that it would be easier to merge Lagos with Ogun since both states have the indigenous same groups - Awori, Egba, & Ijebu.
But I can see your angle.
|Re: Yoruba Commonwealth and Politics by Katsumoto: 8:42pm On Nov 24, 2015|
Let's first establish that you aren't a squatter. When did your forebears get to Lagos?

Merging of states wont work
|Re: Yoruba Commonwealth and Politics by Nobody: 10:30pm On Nov 24, 2015|
Mos def bro.
|Re: Yoruba Commonwealth and Politics by Nobody: 10:33pm On Nov 24, 2015|
Egbon mi, se e wa daada?
I've not been following the group much, not sure much is happening there though. Following your posts as well sir.
|Re: Yoruba Commonwealth and Politics by Katsumoto: 10:39pm On Nov 24, 2015|
And why not? Please elucidate further.
|Re: Yoruba Commonwealth and Politics by raumdeuter: 10:46pm On Nov 24, 2015|
Unless its by a decree, I dont think the states would vote to be merged back
Ondo people were glad to get rid of Ekitis in 1996, Oyo were glad to get rid of the Ijesha in 1991
People in EKiti would simply tell you we cant go back to the days of getting instruction from AKure.
And Ibadan would tell you they dont want Ijeshas back

The Spambot banned me for replying to somebody that greeted me in German.
Here is a video dedicated to one of the old guild of Youtubers (Adunbarin) where you can hear me speak Ilaje Jamani. It's also an old video.

Aareonakakanfo:Just 4? Akure alone has seven.
|Re: Yoruba Commonwealth and Politics by Nobody: 10:58pm On Nov 24, 2015|
I have doubts about the credibilty of the news as well.Those who reside in Ogun state should help us out
Do you live in Akure?
|Re: Yoruba Commonwealth and Politics by Katsumoto: 11:02pm On Nov 24, 2015|
1. Some folk think Yoruba can have an independent nation with so much division. It appears even regionalism can't work.
2. More importantly, people want progress but don't understand what is required and are not prepared to accept change
|Re: Yoruba Commonwealth and Politics by Nobody: 11:11pm On Nov 24, 2015|
Egbon mi, let me begin with question 2. I really haven't paid much attention to the trident, neither do I think it is special considering the fact that I've seen it mostly with Ogboni chiefs. I should add that the Ooni holds the role of the Ogboni Patrone for life upon ascending yhe throne - maybe the trident is an Ogboni aborigene thing.
It is interesting to learn details of culture in Lagos traditional circle. To be honest, I read the post more than 3 times to see if I could figure anything out but my first point of problem I'm yet to get details on what 'Idita' means and its etymology, I always forget to ask this but I will keep it in mind - but I know for sure idita is a label to group the different lines in a single family. Rather than use 'awon or awon ara Iranje' 'awon Idita' is used. The info I got from one of my late uncles was that Idita gas 3 lines - Ilesun, Ilale and Ilia. Hence, Idi meta (three lines) but the present Obalepon told me the info was wrong about 2 months back and I'm yet to get him to give me which is right.
In your post it appears Idita is a shrine of some sort?
Also other problems include the fact that you mentioned egungun visiting Idita; originally egungun was never an Ife thing so houses such as that of Obatala have nothing to do with it.
Is the Idita in Lagos an Obatala shrine/temple? If yes, I would like to know what similarities it has with in operations in dealing with the king as its counterpart in Ife. And if not, I would like to learn how they came up with that name and why the name?
I was going to start up a thread as you said but I thought it would be reasonable to dump the photos here instead since this is a Yoruba thread which allows for somehing of that nature to be shared but I will begin to collate more photos of the process of the coronation to start up a thread.
Egbon, it would really be nice if you shared as much indepth details as possible on Lagos - especially her culture history.
On the side, Ogboni is quite strong within the royal circle of Lagos, I wonder why.
|Re: Yoruba Commonwealth and Politics by Nobody: 11:14pm On Nov 24, 2015|
Sir, I think the previous regional system was arranged along the lines of hold Yoruba kingdoms and provinces - I may be wrong but most of these provinces wanted to be out of being classed with some other provinces or kingdoms.
Right now, I think regional system will be structured along modern states lines rather than subject Ife to Ibadan, Ijesa to Oyo, Ondo to Ekiti etc.
Just my thought.
|Re: Yoruba Commonwealth and Politics by Ghost01(m): 11:15pm On Nov 24, 2015|
Aareonakakanfo:Not at present. I'm sure of the figure though. Except if others have been added to the ones there recently.
|Re: Yoruba Commonwealth and Politics by raumdeuter: 11:18pm On Nov 24, 2015|
This is not peculiar to the SW alone
With an independent nation we can go back to provinces like it used to be
WHile we are all Yoruba we are still different even calling everyone Yoruba was a recent phenomenon
I am sure you know about the clamour for Ijebu State from the current Ogun State, Same with Oke-Ogun from current Oyo and Oduduwa State from current Osun
|Re: Yoruba Commonwealth and Politics by Nobody: 11:20pm On Nov 24, 2015|
Using division from the past [that wasn't even in existence till post Oyo] as a determinant for the feasibility of the implementation of a system that achieved much more than what we currently operate has or ever will is not good enough Egbon.
At least regional system worked for the short period it existed unlike our present system that has lasted longer but keeps making the future appear bleaker by the year.
Wouldn't it be right to try a something that once worked than cower under the fear of Yoruba division that didn't hinder it in its first attempt?
Just my thoughts egbon Katz.
|Re: Yoruba Commonwealth and Politics by Nobody: 11:22pm On Nov 24, 2015|
I'm just now getting your drift sir.
