Group calls on Yoruba monarchs to strip Obasanjo of all chieftaincy titles

A group under the auspices of Yoruba World Congress Worldwide (YWC), has called on traditional rulers in Yoruba land to strip former President Olusegun Obasanjo of all chieftaincy titles bestowed on him for allegedly denigrating some Oyo State monarchs at an event in Iseyin on September 15.

During the event which was to inaugurate projects executed by Oyo State Governor Seyi Makinde, Obasanjo had incurred the wrath of the Yoruba nation when he allegedly reprimanded the traditional rulers for not respecting the governor by not standing up to greet him.

The action of the ex-Head of State has continued to draw condemnation by prominent Yoruba leaders including traditional rulers with many of them calling on Obasanjo to apologise to the Oyo monarchs.
