MEET 50 OBAS WHO RUN LAGOS WITH OBA RILWAN AKIOLU


Oba Rilwan Babatunde Osuolale Aremu Akiolu is the paramount ruler of Lagos and the chairman Lagos State council of Obas. The Council of Obas and Chiefs is one body, which has the capacity to contribute phenomenonally to good governance in the State by constantly availing government of its wisdom and sound advice: using its tremendous influence to mobilize popular support for public policy as well as being an important source of communication and feedback between the government and the grassroots.

As an institution, the Council of Obas and Chiefs is as old as Lagos State itself. It was established following the creation of Lagos State through the Council of Obas and Chiefs of Lagos State, Edict 1969 which came into force in April, 1969. The erstwhile Council of Obas and Chiefs, which was constituted in December 1995 with Thirty-One members, was dissolved in 2007.

The 73 year old Oba who has been on the throne since May 2003, has been able to work with prominent Lagos Obas to bring about the new face of Lagos under the Gov. Ambode administration. The new Council has a total of 51 members drawn from the 5 divisions of the State. The Oba of Lagos is the permanent Chairman of the State Council of Obas and Chiefs with 4 Vice-Chairmen drawn from the remaining 4 divisions of the State namely Epe, Badagry, Ikorodu and Ikeja.

One of the qualities of Oba Rilwan Akiolu is that he has been able to work not only with his 4 Vice Chairmen but has been able to work with other 45 Lagos Obas who constitute the Lagos council of Obas. They are the Ayangburen of Ikorodu, Oba Adewale Shotobi, Alara of Ilara in Epe, Akran of Badagry, and Olu of Ikeja.

He was made the Oba of Eti-Osa by former Governor of Lagos State, Bola Ahmed Tinubu and has spent over 13 years on the throne though many will not forget the cordial relationship that existed between Oba Akinolu and Oba Akani Ayeni until he died few months ago. He was a traditional chief for many years until he was elevated to a first class Oba in Lagos State. Formost Lagos Fashion Designer, Alhaji Lateef Adams ( Latris) a few months ago assumed the throne of his forefathers when he became Oba of Ikate in Surulere.

sad

This is the problem with this country. Ignorance and backwardness. 50 Traditional rulers all drawing stipends from the government in a country that calls itself a REPUBLIC for crying out loud! Do these mor.ons know that in a true REPUBLIC there aren't supposed to be traditional rulers?
