The royal father said, said “Even President Buhari is my child, you must pray that your child is better than you. We pray that by their time they will do better than us. It is not about Christianity or Islam because we don’t have documented history. What we call Orisa today are heroes. People we know as hero, for example, Ogun is the god of iron, there was iron before Ogun but Ogun because Ogun made cutlass. I am not saying we should not celebrate Ogun but the day you become king, you don’t worship any god anymore.

“We are not in the 1st century anymore, what is called witchcraft is poverty, it is negatively, you will not see Folorunsho Alakija as witchcraft. Osi lonje Aje, Aje lonje Osi (It is poverty that is called witchcraft, witchcraft is what is called poverty. When there is so much poverty, the people in poverty will think that everybody will come to their level. It is the myth that is killing African.

“We are all guilty, we have blood in our hands, when you see people looking for promotion, they will go to Alfa, Pastor, Babalawo.

“Eradicate secret society, do an enlightenment act. We are dying, is worse than Boko Haram, it is worse than disaster.

“A king should not belong to any secret society, I don’t belong to one. The meaning of government is Alakoso (Administrator). And not a society of kings.

Speaking further, the monarch said he would continue to challenge the status quo, stressing that most people who were in the habit of challenging the existing belief, are always termed ‘controversial.’
