Oro ruling house affirms Prince Olaniyi Oyatoye as a bonafide member of Oro royal family


…says he is entitled to contest the royal stool.

The Ruling house of Olufayo Afin Oro of the ancient Oro kingdom in the Irepodun local government area of Kwara state has declared that the royal stool of the traditional ruler in the area is not for sale to highest bidder.

In a statement issued to journalists on Tuesday morning by the head of the
Olufayo Ruling house of Aafin Oro, Chief Tejumola Abikoye Titiloye, who is also the head of Olufayo/Oluode compound, Iludun-Oro, Kwara state, said that history is sacrosanct and should not be bent to suit anyone.

It is recalled that a group of persons in the state had said in a publication that the Olufayo ruling house had disclaimed Prince Joel Olaniyi Oyatoye in the obaship matters.

However, the ruling house said that Prince Oyatoye is a bonafide member of the Olufayo Afin Oro royal family and entitled to contest for the royal stool.

“Olufayo Afin Oro Ruling House hereby affirms that Prince Joel Olaniyi Oyatoye is a bonafide member of our family and we wish to state that he is eminently qualified and entitled to the throne of Oro Kingdom.

“History is sacrosanct and cannot be amended in order to suit the interest of any person or group of persons in an attempt to murder destiny or aide character assassination of an innocent soul”, it reads.

The statement, therefore, urged the public to disregard a social media publication sponsored by some unscrupulous elements who are out to distort the history of the great family.

It declared that the said publication as frivolous, self-serving, unwarranted,
condemnable and uncharitable to the good people of Oro Kingdom and humanity in general.

It also urged the author or sponsors of the said publication to desist from such dastard act in the interest of peace and progress of our great community.

The ruling house, however, warned that failure to adhere, is tantamount to dearing the unforeseen consequential repercussion as appropriate legal action shall be taken on culprits as well as media platforms aiding and abetting such criminal act of defamation of character.
