Alaafin Of Oyo: Osinbanjo Praises Late Monarch, Calls Him A Bridge Builder

Yemi Osinbanjo & late Alaafin of Oyo

The vice-president of Nigeria, Yemi Osinbanjo who doubles as a presidential aspirant has described the late Alaafin of Oyo as a “bridge-builder”.

This is coming after it was reported that the late monarch, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi who is aged 83 died at the Afe Babalola University Teaching Hospital located in Ado Ekiti.

The vice president’s remark about the longest-serving king in Oyo was made known through a statement approved by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, identified as Laolu Akande that reads;

“We all feel a great deal of pain and a deep sense of loss. The Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi III, was a force of nature all by himself, he was a man of incredible knowledge and depth, he was erudite in every way.

“He was a bridge builder and I think he created several avenues in the 52 odd years that he reigned. He created several avenues for people from the Southwest of Nigeria to interact with people from other zones from those very early days.”

Osinbanjo recounted how he “had several meetings with him (late Alaafin of Oyo), especially in Abuja, whenever he was in Abuja and sometimes in Ibadan.

“He was one of the most intelligent commentators on public life in Nigeria, on politics and he had such a deep knowledge of politics and international relations and international affairs and even in Nigerian political economy.

“He wrote several articles and books and he was always very keen to share them. I think that clearly, the Alaafin of Oyo was somebody I believe that the monarchy hid away from most of Nigeria just in terms of his intellectual depth and his knowledge.”

“Today we celebrate a man who has lived a life of impact, who has reigned as a monarch, not just royalty, but he has royally proved that you can make tremendous impact in the lives of common people and in the life of your nation even while serving as a monarch in just one portion, one part of your country. I think his impact has been nationwide.”
