You’re An Illiterate, Traditional Rulers At WAR Over Ooni Of Ife
The traditional ruler of Igbotako and Rebuja of Osooro kingdom, in Ondo state, Oba Gbadebo Bajowas, has slammed the Olugbo of Ugbo kingdom, Oba Fedrick Obateru Akinruntan for disrespecting Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi.
Speaking with some selected Youths in his community, who were at his palace to celebrate the Christmas, Oba Gbadebo described Obateru Akinruntan as an ‘uneducated’ monarch.
Oba Akinruntan, who recently spoke against the people of Ile Ife described the Yoruba heroine, Moremi as a traitor.
He further explained that the Ugbo stool is the oldest in Yorubaland and that he is the leader of the Yorubas.
But Oba Gbadebo, however, said that Olugbo lacks the knowledge because of his Education about the history of Ile ife and Yorubaland.
Oba Gbadebo: “I want to say with all humility,Olugbo is ignorant and uneducated ,If Olugbo is Educated, he will be able to read between the lines and know the true position of things. He is not the first Olugbo.All Yoruba monarchs have conceded the cradle of Yorubaland to Ife.
“If I have the opportunity of meeting him,I will confront and ask him questions .He must tell us his source and origin. If he is the source,why is he not at Ife, if he is the source, why is he not recognize in Yoruba land.”
He further said: “Olugbo is coming now to tell us the history he knows nothing about. He is a stark illiterate, a man without brain .He is uneducated and this is evident in the manner he has been going around to expressed his ignorance.”
Oba Bajowa commended the Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Ogunwusi for his efforts in ensuring peace in Yorubaland.
He described the Ooni as a man who has seen the need for unity among traditional rulers in Yorubaland.
“The Ooni of ife is a young man, very prominent and he has the sense of human in him.He has been going around to make sure Yoruba Obas are in uniformity.”
