The paramount ruler of Lagos State, Oba Rilwan Akiolu, has disclosed that none of his children can succeed him.
Oba Akiolu spoke on Wednesday at the Metropolitan Club in Victoria Island, Lagos, where two books – The Life of James Pinson Labulo Davis – A Colossus of Victorian Lagos and Worthy in Character and Learning, which is a collection of lectures and addresses by the Founder of Lagoon Hospitals, Adeyemo Elebute, were presented to the public.
“Anyone coming after me to be the Oba of Lagos will do more than I can do. Although I have told my children never to think that they will succeed me because they still have a lot to learn. They are not well grounded in the things I know.
“Oba Adeyinka Oyekan taught me on a lot of things that I know and have built on those things today. My being a policeman and lawyer helped me to become well grounded and not easily fooled in politics,” Oba Akiolu stated.
This seems to be a curse in the Yoruba land but the king has said it.
