Imposition Of Monarch Not Part Of Our Tradition, Says Oloto Royal Family

Published

on

The Oloto Royal Family of Iddo and Lagos Mainland recently urged politicians to stay away from their king-making process, adding that the imposition of monarchs on kingdoms by politicians is allien to their culture and tradition.
The call was made by chiefs of the ruling houses at a recent meeting held in Lagos.
Present were Chief Mohammed Bashir Ayinla Akinola, the Odofin Oba and Secretary of Oloto Royal Family;  Chief Lamina K. Akinlolu, the Ojomo Oba and Head Baalo Ruling House; Chief Jubril Adebayo Oloto, the Aro Oba and Head of Olupejobi Ruling House, and Chief Shamusideen Adisa Pedro, the Eletu Oba and Head of Eru-Ifa Ruling House, all representatives of the three ruling house of The Oloto Royal Family of Iddo and Lagos Mainland.
The chiefs revealed that their call for politicians to stay away from their affairs follows speculations of an attempt by some very powerful persons in Lagos State to impose a monarch on the kingdom following the death of the last King, Oba Ganiyu Okeyide Odesanya who reigned between 1990 and 2016.
A statement signed by the Secretary of the ruling houses said “We are dismayed that persons are trying to impose a candidate  from Olupejobi ruling house, which produced the past Oba.”
The statement further said “the act is not only against the culture and traditions of the Oloto Royal Family practised over six centuries ago, but against the express provisions of the aforementioned declaration which is an official record of the government of Lagos State.”
Chief Jubril Adebayo Oloto, the Aro Oba and Head of Olupejobi Ruling House while speaking noted that prior to the installation of Oba Okeyide Odesanya, the chiefs, kingmakers, branch heads and entire Oloto Royal Family identified three ruling houses in Otto namely Olupejobi, Baalo, and Eru-Ifa Ruling houses, with succession to the throne to rotate from Olupejobi through Baalo to Eru-Ifa ruling houses.
He further noted that the attempt at imposing a candidate on the kingdom is against the  express declaration of late Oba Okeyide Odesanya whose wish  and declaration was that a person from Baalo ruling house should succeed him.
According to him, the move to impose a candidate from the ruling house which produced the last Oba is one which if allowed to succeed will breed problems in Otto and distort the peaceful co-existence of the people in the area.
He thus urged people who are not familiar with the culture and tradition of the kingdom to halt their attempt at causing unrest with their planned imposition of a candidate outside the ruling house who is supposed to produce the next monarch, adding that the ruling houses are capable of handling their affairs.

Day Of African Child 2021: Evolving Women in Politics (EWIP) Celebrates With African Children…

Published

on

On June 16, 1976, in Soweto, South Africa, about 10,000 black school children marched in a column more than half a mile long, protesting the poor quality of their education and demanding their right to be taught in their own language.

Hundreds of young students were shot – the most famous of them being Hector Pieterson, who died at the age of 12. More than 100 people were killed in the protests of the following two weeks and more than 1000 were injured.

This act left a big impact in Africa and, as a result, all African countries decided in 1991 to commemorate this day each year as the Day of the African Child.

The African Union leads the process and initiates the theme for each year, which all member countries adapt and celebrate in their respective countries.

Kenya has not been left behind and since 1991 the day has been celebrated by Kenyan children holding duty bearers to account by presenting memorandums that articulate their issues in line with the theme.

The Evolving Women in Politics EWIP, in Nigeria, has chosen to celebrate with the African children this year as a sign of unification with other African countries.

The general objective of the celebration of the DAC is to call attention to the linkages between the Sustainable Development Goals and the African Children’s Charter.

According to the Vice President of EWIP, Hajia Raliat Anako Abdulsalam Founder of the Raliat Anako Abdulsalam Foundation (RAAF), The goal is to inspire states to accelerate efforts towards realizing all children’s rights as provided by the African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of Children, as a contribution towards accelerating the promotion and protection of all children’s rights in Africa.

She added that this year 2021, it aims to set out the relevance of the 2030 agenda for sustainable development for children in all countries on the African continent.

President of EWIP, Hajia Fatima Bello, CEO of Jumrash Aso Oke, added that this year’s celebration of the DAC provides a platform to reflect on the African continent’s flagship development agenda – Agenda 2063, the Committee’s Agenda 2040, and how they apply to children in Africa today.
