Obasanjo must apologize to Obas – Yoruba Council Worldwide 


Hassan said, “The recent weeks have witnessed a barrage of monumental embarrassments,  ridicules and brazen abuse of traditional royal Obas and most shocking to grasping with this well intended orchestrated embarrassments by chief Olusegun Obasanjo who dropped the biggest bombshell taboo in the history of Yoruba land, perhaps most disturbing sacrilege in Iseyin, Oyo State when he addressed arrays of first class royal fathers and other leading Obas like toddlers or a village headmaster or Army General talking profusely at his foot soldiers in a most depressing, disparaging and disrespectful manner.

The Yoruba Council Worldwide has described as sacrilegious former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s ordering of traditional rulers in Oyo State to stand and greet Governor Seyi Makinde at a project inauguration in Iseyin on Friday.

Describing the development as depressing, disparaging and disrespectful to the Yoruba people, the YCW urged Obasanjo to apologise or face untold traditional and legal consequences.

“Chief Olusegun Obasanjo has since left the corridors of honour, while we reiterate as the leading vanguard voice for all Yoruba indigenous people globally, we have eternal duty to preserve the aesthetic distinct  Omoluabi ethos, royal stools and ancestral customs and traditions of the Yoruba Obaship, precipitating our demand for immediate apologies by Chief Olusegun Obasanjo within the next three days or face untold traditional and legal reprisal consequences, not limited to filing action at a court of competent jurisdiction for  defamation and scandalous libel, while we shall call for stripping him off of all chieftaincy titles conferred on him by any Yoruba monarchs.

“Furthermore, we shall mobilize all market women, youths and leaders of thoughts against the Baba Obasanjo for desecrating the Yoruba ancestral cultural heritage, norms, tradition and values. On this note we wish to set the records straight that Chief Olusegun Obasanjo is NO longer the President of Nigeria, and he should stop parading himself deceitfully and impersonating or creating a scenario to command such ill motivated authority.”
