Yoruba nation: I won’t join issues with those attacking me – Alake of Egba

The Alake and Paramount Ruler of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Aremu Gbadebo, has no reply to the Yoruba nation agitators who have taken to the social media to call him out.

Oba Gbadebo was slammed over the weekend for a comment which many interpreted as being against Sunday Adeyemo Igboho’s call for Yoruba nation.

Sunday Igboho had declared that the Yorubas were no longer in Nigeria, however when the Alake hosted the leadership of the Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria (RTEAN) at his palace in Ake, Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, where he sued for peace, he said the failure of Nigeria would mean the failure of the black race.

While calling on those calling for secession to have a rethink, the monarch said a war should not be allowed to break out in Nigeria this time, saying no country could accommodate about 250 million people as refugees.

Alake’s comment appeared to have angered the Yoruba nation agitators, who have taken to the social media to call him many unprintable names.

Reacting, Oba Gbadebo denied tackling Sunday Igboho in his conversation with the transport union saying he would not join issues with his attacker as he would not never support anarchy and chaos as a traditional ruler.

“I told the road transport union that came to my palace that their union used to be known for causing quarrels at motor parks, that they should maintain peace and look for the progress of this country.

“As a traditional ruler, I cannot support chaos or anarchy and most of the things that I do are to promote peace, progress, and mostly the happiness of all my people,” the monarch clarified.
