“A dwarf cannot rule Akure” – Youths Protests

Some youths in Akure staged a protest this morning the Ondo State Capital following the emergence of Prince Kole Aladetoyinbo as the new Deji of Akure elect.

Following the death of the former Deji, Oba Adebiyi Adesida,Aladetoyinbo, was among 13 princes who contested for the throne which had been declared vacant since December 1, 2013. The youths however protested to the governor’s office, requesting the State government not to approved the appointment of the new Deji-elect. They argued that the Deji-elect had staunch on the back, bald head and also a dwarf. They said these characteristics, he is not qualified as Deji as stipulated by the tradition.

Read below a protest letter signed by Adesina family’s spokesperson, Prince Dapo Adepoju Adesina, and addressed to the Governor, Olusegun Mimiko.

The letter reads:

“We want to bring to the notice of Mr. Governor that the Adesina family was part of the struggle that eventually made him the elected governor of the State.

“Aside the personal supports of the deposed Deji’s family members, Adesina donated both in cash and kind to support Governor Mimiko.

“Sir, it will be recalled that the Labour Party (LP) then in Akure was ophan in which some people
were not bold enough to associate with the party, but one of the elder brothers of the deposed

“Deji” released his hotel, known as “Crown Guest House” free of charge for meetings in support of your Excellency.

“These are the few among the numerous supports given to your Excellency during the trenchy period.

  ” Despite the deposition of Adesina in 2010, the guest house was still been used by your foot soldiers and leaders of LP in your support during the governorship poll in 2012.

“With this it shows that we voted for you during your second term election in 2012.

“Sir, we want you to tamper justice with mercy, because we believe that the sin of Adesina is pardonable, considering the fact that such happened in Owo in which late Oba Olagbegi was deposed and Oba Ogunoye was enthrone as the King, but the death of Ogunoye, the government under the administration of Governor Olumilua reinstated Olagbegi back as King in which your Excellency was part of the Excos of the administration then.”
