 Iwo prince urges Yoruba monarchs to caution Oluwo on Emir title



The Secretary of the Adagunodo Ruling House in Iwo, Prince Semiu Oladimeji, has called on the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi; the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi; and other prominent traditional rulers in Yorubaland to caution the Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Adewale Akanbi, against dressing as or using the title of an emir.

He said Iwo and the Oluwo were not subjugated by the Fulani, saying it was absurd for Oba Akanbi to dress like an emir and use the title to address himself.

The prince said this in Iwo on Friday at a press conference to address what he described as the “misrepresentation” of the stool and the town by Oba Akanbi.

Oladimeji said the title of an emir was alien to the stool of Oluwo, saying none of the predecessors of Oba Akanbi ever adopted such a title.

Oladimeji said some of the conducts of Oba Akanbi were appalling and should be stopped, otherwise, he would drag the monarch to the court.

Oladimeji said, “It is not in the history of Iwo to wear a crown for the Olori (queen). Whoever wants to become a monarch in Iwo must have lived in the town for 10 years to enable him to be acquainted with the traditions of the people. A monarch must spend 90 days in ipebi (seclusion) before wearing the crown.

“I met him (Oba Akanbi) for three hours on the issue between him, the Oluwo-Oke and Chief Abiola Ogundokun. I advised him not to confront the people with his personality. He should allow us to handle it, but he refused.

“I have now written to the elders three times to caution him that he should drop all the alien titles and represent the stool with dignity.

“Waziri is not a traditional title  (in Iwoland) and the monarch should not interfere in the affairs of the League of Imams and Alfas. The installation of Waziri is alien to Iwoland.

“If he (Oba Akanbi) fails to change, I will sue him to make sure that the error of title of the emir that he adopted is corrected. An oba is superior to an emir. The Iwo monarch has no right to bear emir. We don’t have an emir in Iwo.

“I want to call on the Ooni of Ife and the Alaafin of Oyo to caution Oba Akanbi against adopting this title and other wrong things he is doing.”

Oba Akanbi had recently installed Yacoub Albaki as the Waziri of Yorubaland and he also addressed himself as the Emir of Yorubaland at the ceremony.
