#Royalty #Dignity #Legacy " In yoruba land, the twin notion of BIBIRE & OMOLUABI (good conduct & upbringing based on noble heritage) are held in high esteem. It is the basis by which maturity, tact, wisdom, respect for others, hospitality, friendliness and orderly conduct are judged and measured. And celebrated. In all these, wisdom and maturity are, perhaps, the best indicators that demonstrate the capacity to lead and be respected for arriving at decisions and solutions that may not necessarily align with particular expectations, but the results will be pleasing and welcomed regardless. Tact, diplomacy, circumspection. Even the bible speaks to the need to obtain wisdom, and to use tact (solemnity) to achieve end results where there is strife. The conduct of the Oba of Lagos has always left a sour taste in the mouth. Tact certainly is not one of his great assets, nor is Laakaye- native wisdom. We can then understand why some reign without ruling, and where they manage to rule, they are at best usurpers to what should ordinarily be the hallowed ground for people who, at least with age and responsibility of office, show progressive wisdom acquisition. It used to be said that 'ade ori la fi nmo Oba' (a king is easily identified by his royal gait). Unfortunately, some are also identified by their misbehaviour and permanent foot in the mouth. The so called Oba of Lagos is a disgrace to any claim to royal heritage. Certainly a bad copy for anyone who claims to be a leader, a kabiyesi. Worse still , an elder of any stock. The Ooni was not the one humiliated- it is the common ancestry and decency that Lagos and Lagosians stand for that was rubbished. Sadly, you can't give what you don't have. Agba kii so'ro bi ewe."
