Are you postulating that it would be easier to abolish states & LGs and just create provinces along historical kingdoms? And have one premier?
If that, I worry that traditional rulers may interfere too much. But it would be better than the current arrangement.

I was responding to DK's post about divisions.
If you have followed my posts, you would have realised that I have a preference for regionalism.

Yes. Its easier to identify with historical kingdoms than the attempted STate creation by the military. Oyo STate, Osun state, EKiti STate Ogun state lagos State are Nigerian and military terminologies
There can be up to 20 provinces based on our ancestral differences. WHat is called Osun currently is a combination of Igbomina, Oyo speaking, Ijesha, And Ife people, Ogun is made of Egba, Ijebu and riverine people, Ondo is made of Ondo, AKure, Ikale, and riverine people
Merge the Ekiti in Kwara with the current EKiti, The Okun can stand alone, the Igbomina in Kwara merge with their Osun brothers
It would make traditional rulers more powerful but Yorubas dont have an issue with obeying their annointed kings and like in Oyo empire there are Oyo mesi to check the king

I am getting you. Do you suggest this template only in an Odua nation or do you think it is workable in a regional setting within Nigeria?
|Re: Yoruba Commonwealth and Politics by raumdeuter: 1:14am On Nov 25, 2015|
I am mostly concerned about Odua nation. Nigeria is way too complex that even good ideas get shot down because of jealousy or that because people dont just understand what they want.
It depends on their historical setting some places dont have a history to hook on to. I think I believe its workable in most places in Nigeria especially in the North and middle belt. Its easier to be joined together with people you share the same ancestry.

My forbears set foot on Eko the same rainy season of the year the Carlos I, King of Portugal lost five merchant ships to gale winds in the Gulf of Guinea. They called my great great grandfather on the rescue mission to save lives. As reward Carlos started trading with Eko, christening it Lagos and established diplomatic exchange.
Nobody merges anything until Im properly compensated. Besides, 7heads of goats have to be sacrificed as well to call the ancestors and see if they agree to this merger or not. Mind you, the money compensation is non refunded if they reject the merger.

Okun can stay alone but the Ekitis in Kwara can't? Why not just blend the whole SW na?

Put you through what, application for scholarship??
Please go to the govt secratariat and get that started.
By birthright as a Yoruba, you have rights to scholarship for education but your eligibility will need to be proven to get it. You cannot leave your birthright wasted and turn to internet begging for help.
Take what belongs to you!

It is when we get rregional autonomy that we will face the Ogun people who have been marginalizing the rest of us politically since time immemorial......
From Papa Awo to OBJ to Shonekan to PYO, the ogun folks have stopped the rest of us from developing, the lack of equity & justice is mind numbing, we will secede..

Unlike 90% of the people who have no sense of purpose & keep spamming Politics board with diatribes & invectives, no one on that thread wandered there..
Proffessional & cultured women na hin full there, sharing ideas,opinions & experiences to guide one other, the thread make sense die & we do have lots & lots of laughs dia..
It does get Testy & hot on occassions but in little or no time,sanity is restored & it is higgly commendable despite most having hormonal surges & it's attendant effect on emotions..
I am bipolar, I go out of my way to make peace & I can still tear cloth fight IF NEED BE.... The hand dealt dictates my stand...
As for the crazies & trolls here, 95% of them are miserable & therefore see the internet as a free rein to let off steam.. Most of dem E lions are no more than pussykats when they don't have access to their chinko phones & 10MBs....
Youthful exuberance na hin dey worry mizkulialata, she is also full of hot air which explains why she & trolls have so much drama, she has her pic on her profile.

Brilliant blueprint maaan.Brilliant! I'm thinking of forwarding this to DAWN to see what they think about it
I don't think they have anything like this in their document
Those guys need to create a nairaland account as well.Think Oyo have one even though they hardly log in
South-west states also need to have nairaland accounts with which they can use to update us on what's going on

[size=15pt]Oyo govt. to create credible data base of SMEs[/size]
Gov. Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State said on Tuesday that his administration would create a credible data base of Small and Medium Enterprises (SME’s) to further develop the state.
Ajimobi said this at a stakeholders meeting with heads of local government administration from the 33 local government areas at the State Ministry of Trade and Investment, Ibadan.
The governor was represented by Mr Yinka Fatoki, the Executive Secretary, Bureau of Investment Promotion/Public Private Partnership (BIP/PPP).
He said that the essence of the programme was to create the atmosphere for small businesses to thrive.
“We have rolled out several policies in the last four years for businesses to thrive, among which was the N16 billion window with Bank of Industry (BOI) and N2bn with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) for SMEs,’’ he said.
Ajimobi said that there was no way the nation could close its eyes to SMEs, saying Nigeria must cease being a monolithic economy in order to get out of its economic misfortune.
Also, Mr Amos Ogunwale, Senior Research Fellow, Nigeria Institute of Social and Economic Research (NISER), said that the state government’s action “was a right step in a right direction’’.
Ogunwale said that the feasibility of Oyo State assuming a key position as economic power and a catalytic hub for development had become a major concern of government with the dwindling oil revenue.
He said that the state government had taken appropriate steps, having constituted a working and implementation committee consisting of several agencies to work on the assignment.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that among the agencies constituted are NISER, Oyo State Bureau of Statistics, Oyo State Ministry of Economic Planning and Nigeria Investments Promotion Council (NIPC).
Others are the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and the project was to be anchored by the office of the state’s Head of Service.
Ogunwale said that a pilot survey of the project would take place by the second week of January while the main survey was scheduled for the second week of February in 2016.
He said that six local governments – Ibadan South-West, Ibadan North-East, Ibarapa North, Surulere, Egbeda and Iwajowa – had been selected for the pilot scheme, while the main survey would hold in the 33 local governments.

[size=13pt]Chinese company plans steel plant for Oyo[/size]
Chinese company, HBIS Tanshan Group, has proposed the establishment of a 3-million metric tonne steel plant in Oyo State.
The group disclosed this at a meeting with the state government officials, represented by the State Deputy Governor, Moses Alake-Adeyemo, and other top government officials were also present. One of the directors, Zhao Lishu, and the current Special Adviser to the Minister for Steel in China, Gu Lin, led the Chinese delegation.
The HBIS delegation from China was led by Alake-Adeyemo assured the company the state was one of the largest in Nigeria with the largest land mass. Oyo is the 14th largest of the 36 states.
He said proposed partnership with the HBIS group was a strategic one.
“We cannot quantify the merits of this proposed partnership between HBIS and Oyo state. This partnership will definitely increase Oyo state’s IGR, employment, investment etc. Oyo state is prepared to partner with HBIS in establishing the 3 Million MT Steel Plant. For any country to develop, iron and still will be core to their development,” Alake-Adeyemo said.
The Chinese HBIS Group Han-Steel was established in 1958. It has developed into one important high-quality plate and strip production base in China after over half a century of hard work and has comprehensively possessed an annual steel production capacity of 10 million tonnes.
It has total assets of 61,8 billion Yuan (US$970 million) and annual sales revenues of more than 35 billion Yuan.

My bad... , i disregarded him cos i believe "Almost doesn't count" ... He was a friend of the military junta till things fell apart....& if I'm being truthful, as much as i believe he gave his life for the entrenchment of democracy in Nigeria, i am convinced it was not for any altruistic reasons, it was just happenstance...
He wanted POWER to crown the MONEY & RESPECT.

Nice write up. But emm, please remember this saying, 'Oba ko ju Oba lo'.
For those who consider some Oba's higher than others, make una no vex. Because some Yoruba Kingdoms were never conquered and were never able to be subjugated by any Kingdom. So, they therefore remain a super king in their own right. We shouldn't use the advantage of past history of some Kingdoms or empires to subjugate other Kingdoms.
I think this should be our discussion for today.
Should kingship be abolish in case Nigeria disintegrate and the issues of first class Oba causes division?
@Aareonakakanfo over to you sir.

Musiwa419:Unfortunately, Kabiyesi, Oba Akiolu just travelled to London yesterday. I am sure he wouldnt take it likely.
While i support the ibos agitation for biafra as much as i support the dismemberment of this country and the eventual creation of an independent Yoruba nation, i do not subscribe to this plan of a biafra protest in Lagos state. It is highly provocative and it would certainly lead to chaos and bloodletting.
I got the news yesternight and i immediately sent a message to the Deputy Governor, Secertary to the Governor and the State's Chief of Staff. I hope they got my message and i hope it would be part of their discussion at the council meeting today.
