The installation and coronation of the 15th Aare Onakakanfo of Yourbaland, Otunba Ganiyu Adams, has come and gone at the ancient city of Oyo town where His Royal Majesty, Oba Lamidi Atanda Olayiwola 111, Iku Babayeye reigns.
There is no gainsaying that the event was a memorable one by all standard due to the calibers of the guests who attended the August occasion. But while many expected the presence of Yoruba governors to add glamour to the event, rather they all stayed away except the host, Governor Isiaq Ajimobi.
It reminds people during the installation of the business mogul, late Chief MKO Abiola as the 14th Aare Onakakanfo of Yourba land in the year 1988 at the same venue, Durbar stadium in Oyo town. The then military governors of the western states equally stays away. “A repeat of history”?
When the late Chief MKO Abiola was approached about the absence of the then Military governors, the business mogul and billionaire simply close the chapter by referring to the governors as “EAGLETS” which he shouldn’t be bothered about.
