Council of Owu Obas met, task President Buhari

Owu settlements are found throughout the Yoruba Kingdom and they are currently in states that include;  Kwara, Ogun, and Osun.


The Owu towns and the indigenes still consider themselves as brothers and they have a good sense of fraternity and kinship among them.  The monarchs of the Owu towns have also decided to have a platform for interactions  and they now  operate under the aegis of the Council of Owu Obas.

 The Chairman of the Council is the Olowu of Kuta, Osun state, His Royal Majesty,  Oba Hammed Adekunle Oyelude Makama, Tegbosun III.   We  learned that the monarchs held  its maiden meeting on Wednesday, 11th July, at Kuta, Osun state and in the communique issued after the meeting,  the royal fathers called on the Federal Government to restructure the security architecture of the country in order to successfully tackle the security challenges facing the nation and also to fulfill the constitutional role of securing lives and property of Nigerians, the royal fathers also  praised the Federal Government for its Economic Recovery Growth Plan through the diversification of the  nation's economy with emphasis on Agriculture.

The royal message also contained royal request that   the political actors at all levels should play by the rules , shun the "do or die" approach and embrace peace. While stating that they are not unmindful of the happenings in the country, the monarchs  however,  sued for peace noting that it is only a  nation where peace and harmony reigns that can guarantee the preservations of its royal  stools and domains .

We  gathered that  the  Olowu of Owu,  Abeokuta, Olowu of Iji, Olowu Ijebu, Olowu  of Owu-Isin,  Kwara state, Olowu Ikosi, Olowu Gbawojo,Olowu Telemu, General Ekundayo Opaleye  were among those who attended the meeting
