Monarch wars: Yoruba group seeks Maye’s intervention


A pan Yoruba socio-cultural group, Yoruba Concerned Citizens (YCC), has appealed to the Maye of Yorubaland, Chief Ramon Adegoke Adedoyin, to wade into the current seniority tussle and ancestry claims among key royal fathers in Yoruba land in order to prevent disintegration among the people.

According to a statement by the group, which was signed by its Secretary-General, Prince Adetunji Adegboye, the raging royal battle bordering on superiority claims among some revered Yoruba Obas is a matter that calls for concern.

The group, therefore, asked Adedoyin to use his position as the Maye of Yorubaland to wade into the matter, to prevent it from festering.

The group said, that, being the trado-spiritual anchor of the Yoruba Kingdom, the Maye derived his preeminence from the era of Oduduwa by holding aloft the sacred throne from “falling” and the kingdom from utter “disintegration.”

According to the group, the Maye is not only seen as a brave and invincible warrior but a peacemaker.

“We call on the Maye of Yoruba nation to put a final stop to the endless rifts among our revered royal fathers, the Ooni of Ife, Alaafin of Oyo, Olugbo of Ugboland, and most especially, the trado-cultural cul de sac in which they are historically entangled.”
