Following the recent tension on the agitation for the sovereignty of Oduduwa Republic out of Nigeria, Oba Saliu Adetunji of Ibadan has said Yorubaland cannot just decide to be out of Nigera without consulting with the ancestors.
Olubadan made this known through his spokesperson, Adeola Oloko, he said Kabiyesi Olubadan would like everyone to know that the intention to create Oduduwa Republic needed deep thinking and wide consultations.
He said, “I don’t want people to misinterpret Kabiyesi’s perspective concerning the creation of Oduduwa Republic, but agitating for the creation of Oduduwa Republic is beyond anyone.”
“All Yoruba traditional monarchs must sit-down and have a deep discussion with one another to know if Yorubaland is truly ready for Oduduwa Republic.
“Yorubaland cannot just decide to be out of Nigera without consulting with the ancestors.
“For instance, if a king is to be chosen, the most appropriate thing is to consult the ancestors through the oracle before anyone can be crowned as king”.
“Yorubaland has a deep cultural heritage, no one can just do things without due diligence and consultation,“ he added.
