"I Haven’t Adopted The Title Of An Emir" - Oluwo Of Iwo Oba Abdul-Rasheed Akanbi by blazhykowskyi(m): 10:25pm On Apr 01, 2018
The Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdul-Rasheed Akanbi, has denied adopting the title of an emir, contrary to media reports.

Speaking through his media aide, Mr. Ali Ibrahim, in a statement issued on Sunday, the Oluwo explained that he had never dropped the title of an Oba for an emir.

The monarch has been dressing like an emir and wearing turban occasionally and he again wore the turban on Saturday when he installed Yakub Abdul-Baqi Mohhamed the Waziri of Yorubaland in his palace in Iwo.

He installed the Waziri, allegedly despite the warning given to him by the League of Imams and Alfas in South West, Edo and Delta states, that he had no such powers to confer an Islamic title, which cuts across the entire South West, on anybody.

The statement read, “Oluwo has never adopted the Emir title; he only said he could also be called an Emir by the Hausas and ardent Muslims.


“Oba Akanbi is an Oba for the nation, with special attachment to the Yorubas. He promotes Yoruba culture to the admiration of many youths.

“Just because of Oluwo dress code today, many children are attracted to Yoruba culture of wearing aso ofi.

“I said so (reference to being an emir) to integrate Nigeria nation as an indivisible entity. All working tools are available for the integration and unity of our dear country.

“I’ve visited the North several times. Core Hausa hardly pronounce Yoruba words correctly. They call me emir when I am with them. Is there anything wrong in answering to such?

“Even, the Hausa in Iwo here call me emir. Will I stop them from addressing me as such?

“No, I am a father to the nation, being a first-class paramount ruler.”

This man doesn't know how to lie.How can you be dressing like an emir and say that hausa's call you so.Your kingship ends at Iwo you are not a father to any nation or any first class traditional ruler.And yes you can tell the hausa's to stop addressing you as such because when you are in rome you behave like a roman so they should respect the title given to the ruler of iwoland.

Wetin we no go see and gear ke?

That hausa and 'some ardent' muslims and those that can not pronounce OBA as simple as it is can call you oba, result of your several 'romantic' the hausas visit to the north....

So, if Yoruba cannot pronounce Emir well, they can as well change his title to 'OBA of Kano' ...

imagine the reception that would create... these people will never allow that, why, they value what they have irrespective of where you are coming from or your new idea...

I still dobt the 'genuity' of this so called 'Oba'...or is it 'emir and his wasiri'....

Well considering from the angle of both sides, I seriously think angle 180 is much lesser than 90degree or Phd. Or tell me, why would Buhari allow Osinbajo to sell his left kidney just to raise money to campaign for election. Even Donald trump himself, I don't know what he's doing in Onitsha last week with that Ashawo woman called Bobrisky...well I just want to tell you that my phone just got spoil today and the screen is damaged. Please is this 2go or whatsapp? Tell me please...

This Abdul-Rasheed Akanbi of a guy has lost whatever admiration I had for him and I would be disappointed if he is not deposed. The only value of traditional rulers in Nigeria is that they are custodians of the culture. The man has failed in this area. He has failed his stool.
His head needs to be examined to truly know if he is mentally stable.

Stupidity is when you tag an Afonjas as IPOB.

BTW, I've always reiterated that typically, Yorubas are sellout. Offer any Yoruba person a plate of watery ewedu soup and the dark carbon like stuff called amala and they will sellout their whole generation born and unborned if you think I'm lying.

Now this is the same scenerio that played out in the past that brought about the infiltration of the north into Yoruba land...

See them. If one bad mouthed Yoruba guy hit you below the belt now, you will start shouting "Yoruba hate us", "Give us Biafra" up and down. Yet you all are worse.
The only issue I have with you guys is that you always play the victim since 1967. You have never been wrong; it's always others.

The man should be dethroned already. He’s a tool in the hands of those who want to islamise Nigeria and yorubaland in particular.

We Christians should never allow them actualise their plans for Nigeria. Useless yahoo yahoo king!
