Where Are The Two Asiwaju’s Young Obas?’ Where Are Saheed & Gbolahan? by DebbyJose: 9:10pm On Oct 21
In what was staged as a simple and peaceful protest, the momentum expanded and the political stakeholders are all on their toes to restore sanity and orderliness in the country.

In all of these, one is forced to ask, were are the Asiwaju’s young Obas?

The place of a royal father requires a high level of wisdom, intellect, and sufficient sensitivity to the affairs of his community, which he heads as a spiritual father and cultural custodian. Sadly, these two young Obas, who were evidently a product of conspiracy and patron-client godfathers lack these virtues.

The so-called social media Obas have lost the esteemed relevance of environmental responsibility; the two of them.

After all, they still chose to deliberately display their social eminence and vanity, on their respective social media handles. While one is showing off on the golf course, the other is showing off his line of attires on Instagram

When the purpose of a thing is not known, abuse is inevitable. It is only in Lagos that we have social media Obas, who spend more time tweeting and showing off on Instagram, rather than carrying out their sacred mandate (whether stolen or hijacked), which they owe the people.

Just as the Latin expression “nemo dat quod non habet” (You cannot give what you don’t have) insinuates, they have become social climbers who are first to get to Owanbe venue and are the last to leave.

These Obas' behaviours undermine the royal institution of the Yoruba people, refusing to wade in and say something meaningful in times like this shows that traditional institutions in Lagos is in need of deep reform.

It sends a wrong signal - that the norms, values, and culture of the Yoruba people are being taken for granted, especially by the Obas on Lagos Island.

Being a leader is a call to serve, not be served Jollof rice and Moet. It is our hope that these young landlords turned Obas will reason beyond their noses and amend their ways accordingly.

Gbolahan and Saheed are hereby advised to take a cue from the invasion of angry youth into the palace of Oba Akiolu in Isale Eko earlier today. It took the intervention of the military machinery to get him out of the scene.
It should teachl you that when you are irresponsible, your loyalist could turn to be your worst nightmare.
