OPINION: Oni of Ife Should Understand That The Throne Is Not For A Hustler.

Touch not my anointed is a Bible verse. Oni represents Yoruba preservation. If he errs in the position, he deserves to face disgrace. The Oni should have been shown the door from the day he made that fraudulent comment with no historical backing about Igbos link to Ife. The throne of Ife exists to preserve Yoruba heritage, it is not a hub for a hustler trying to make money by using his cultural influence for personal gain. 

In the days of old any monarch that does not represent the interest of the people is removed. Let me give examples:

Oni Gbanlare was murdered for going against the popular wish of his people. So was Geghaaje

Wunmolaje was disposed as well because the people rejected his style of leadership. 

At a point, everyone became scared to become Oni because of how people turned against them. Oni Adegule had to make the nobility at Ife swear not to disgrace him if he took office. He was also killed by poisoning. 

How about Oyo,

Alaafin Ajaka was rejected because he was too weak. Shango was rejected because he became very dictatorial.

Alaafin onisile was forced to commit suicide cause he loved to invoke the spirit of Shango and his people were uncomfortable. 

In Ijebu, Awujale Adifdipote was rejected because his policies caused recession in Ijebu. 

Oni Adesoji was nearly rejected by people of Ife because he mismanaged the common wealth of Ife kingdom with the proceeds from its forest timber. 

Alake of Egba land was deposed by the great Egba women because of his tax policies. 

Now if any monarch stands in the way of Yoruba progress or go against the determination of Yoruba people not to be turned into slaves in their ancestral home like the Hausa people we owe it as a duty to reject and force them to be deposed.

They sit on the throne to serve Yoruba interest and the desire of its people not the other way round.

We have made a decision. We don't want herdsmen in our bushes and region anymore we also want emancipation of Yorubaland. Any monarch that stands in our way is part of the problem. He is no different from the Fulani that oppress us and he needs to be gotten rid of.
