Oba Abdulrosheed Adewale Akanbi, the Oluwo of Iwo, has warned against the use of social media to spread falsehoods, while also advising proponents of Nigeria’s separation to channel their energies into demanding quality governance and power devolution.

While speaking to journalists in his palace earlier on Monday, Oba Akanbi also urged Nigerians in the Diaspora to be cautious in adding to the discussions so as not to spark discord in the region.

While observing that a fractured Nigeria could spell defeat for the black race because Nigeria is the black race’s powerhouse and hope, the king clarified that no person can split the nation at this crucial juncture because such agitation is aggressive and capable of eroding the African continent.

“Nigeria is an indivisible, unbreakable, inseparable, and impenetrable country and the future of the black race,” he says. Nigeria is the unified power of the black race, and its flaws must be addressed correctly and practically. Any effort to divide Nigeria would unavoidably result in the global division of the black race.

“I want to admonish the agitators of Nigeria’s break up to channel their energy towards productive venture such as calling for quality governance and devolution of power as done in some advanced countries.

“We should act politely by managing issues maturely and not calling for war. Such discussions could be interpreted as beating the drums of war. They should know they have families and relatives here in Nigeria. War knows no one.

“The leaders at the helms of affairs should be tasked to give dividends of democracy and quality lives to citizens. Promoting secession is like fuelling war that will consume the black race. As a responsible father to the nation, I can never be part of such move.

“The government is tasked to make available the dividends of democracy through policies that cut across all classes and social strata. The agitators should dust their Voters’ cards, take part in election and promote competent candidates. Nigeria is too delicate to beat the drum of division synonymous with war.”

Expressing optimism that Nigeria will bounce back, the traditional ruler stated that she will survive the trying times and be an envy of great nations.

“We have what it takes. What we need can only be done by competent leaders. Let us harmonise interests to demand quality governance.”
