AMAZING…..Meet first ever Emir in Yorubaland



The first ever traditional ruler to bear the title of an Emir has finally emerged in the south western part of Nigeria, ROYAL NEWS has gathered.

He is Oba Abdulrasheed Adewale who is also the Oluwo of Iwoland but now prefers to be addressed as the Emir of Iwoland to emulate the northern traditional system.

Speaking at the installation and turbarning ceremony of an Islamic scholar, Sheikh Yahquub Abdul-Baaqi Mohammed as first Waziri of Yoruba land on Saturday, Oba Akanbi said he decided to now bear “Emir of Iwoland” because he wants to emulate the attitudes of northern Emirs.

According to Oluwo, Northern traditional rulers are better behaved than his counterparts from the Southwest saying Yoruba Obas are full of bickering, acrimony and enmities.

He said Yoruba traditional rulers lacks cooperation and expected royal characters saying the Yoruba Obas have been polarized owing to enmities.

Oba Akanbi said until Yoruba Obas come together, shun enmities and backbiting, Hausas would continue to rule Nigeria.

“I have decided to officially adopt Emir title today because I want to emulate the attitudes of Northern Emirs. They don’t begrudge themselves like Yoruba Obas.

” It will surprise you to discover that for the past two years, there has not been meeting of Yoruba traditional rulers just because of enmities. There is nothing strange in adopting Emir title. I am the Emir of Yorubaland,” Oluwo said.

After this declaration by the monarch, indigenes and guests at the ceremony hailed Oba Akanbi.
