Senator Yayi Suffers Rejection As Aremo Oba Of Yewa Land


Plans by the Olu of Ilaro and Paramount Ruler of Yewaland, Oba Kehinde Olugbenle, to install the Lagos West Senator, Olamilekan Adeola, as the Aremo Oba of Yewaland has been generating cold war among indigenes of Ogun State.


The Ogun indigenes rejected the planned installation on the grounds that Sen. Adeola was not qualified to be named Aremo Oba Yewa, which means the Prince of Yewa Obas.

Before now, Adeola had made various attempts to become a Senator of Ogun West and the governor of the Gateway State, but the bids have continued to hit brick walls as many were not convinced that the Senator hails from Ogun West as being claimed.

However, the Olu of Ilaro is bent on conferring a title on Adeola; a step many described as an attempt to prepare him for the 2023 senatorial election.

But, the stakeholders, during a press conference in Abeokuta, the state capital, stated that it would be a taboo for the monarch to confer such title on a non-indigene, adding that only a prince could be named Aremo Oba of Yewaland.

The indigenes, under the auspices of the Ogun West Liberation Forum, spoke through their Vice Chairman, Wale Akinwande, who argued that Oba Olugbenle has no singular authority in choosing who to be installed as the Aremo Oba of Yewaland without the consent of other first-class Obas in Yewaland.
