“If he is the source,why is he not at Ife, if he is the source, why is he not recognize in Yoruba land.”

  1. This is it,Oba Akinruntan is not supposed to be an Oba his titled should be Bale the governor of Ondo state should take note of this. The Oba is an half-baked person when you look at all his utterances the way he bragged . He once said he uses a million pound wrist watch and shop in London. This is more or less like a baby talk,his worth upon all his illegal Oil exportation is three hundred million while some small boys in Nigeria worth billion and they would never bragged. He wants to twist the history of Yorubas to favour him. The Yorubas are too smart to believe his pork-pie story. Kudos to Oba Bajowa someone need to stand-up for all Yorubas.
