FROM THE CHAMBERS OF THE NOAH’S ARK
(YORUBA WORLD ASSEMBLY)

BEING THE 45TH EDITION OF MY REGULAR BROADCASTS RELEASED TODAY TUESDAY 27TH APRIL, 2021

THEME: JUNE 12 REFERENDUM: MY POSITION

1. GREETINGS:

I WELCOME YOU ALL TO MY WORLD ONCE AGAIN. MAY WE ALL WITNESS THE GREAT DAY WE ALL LOOK FORWARD TO – OUR DAY OF LIBERATION – IN THE NAME OF GOD ALMIGHTY. AMEN.

2. DEDICATION TO A MAN I HATE SO MUCH:

FOR THE SECOND TIME RUNNING IN THE RELAY OF THIS COLUMN, I AM DEDICATING THIS EDITION TO SOMEBODY I HATE SO MUCH – CHIEF TOLA ADENIYI. WHY THE HATRED?, YOU ARE SURELY WONT TO ASK. YES, THE MAN KNOWS I QUARREL WITH HIM. WHY? FOR THOSE WHO DO NOT KNOW, THIS MAN HAS THE RECORD OF BEING THE MOST PROLIFIC COLUMNIST NOT ONLY IN THIS PRESENT GENERATION BUT IN THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE WORLD UP TO TODAY. WHAT I AM SAYING IN A STRAIGHT LANGUAGE IS THAT HE HAS WRITTEN MORE NEWSPAPER AND MAGAZINE COLUMNS THAN ANYBODY ELSE IN THE WHOLE WORLD. AND SO, I HAVE CHALLENGED HIM AND EVEN BEGGED HIM TO REGISTER THIS FEAT WITH THE GUINNESS WORLD BOOK OF RECORD OVER THE YEARS AND HE HAS ALWAYS IGNORED ME. HENCE MY HATRED OF HIM. I PRAY SOMEBODY OUT THERE PREVAILS ON HIM TO SEE THINGS MY WAY.

BUT OUTSIDE OF THIS, THE GREAT MAN REMAINS ONE OF THE FIVE GREATEST YORUBA LEADERS I RESPECT MOST IN THE WORLD. AND SO, TO CHIEF TOLA ADENIYI, I DEDICATE THIS BROADCAST ONCE AGAIN.

AS THE COMMON MAXIM GOES, ONLY THE DEEP CAN CALL TO THE DEEP. ONLY INTELLIGENTSIA CAN MORE EASILY RECOGNIZE THEIR CONTEMPORARY INTELLIGENTSIA. ONE OF THE LEADERS WHO HAVE RECOGNIZED MY CHEMISTRY AND USUALLY STANDS ON TOP OF THE ROOF TO PROCLAIM ME IS CHIEF TOLA ADENIYI. I AM HEREBY PRESENTING ONE OF HIS IMPRESSIONS ABOUT ME AS FOLLOWS:

‘THERE IS NO YORUBA PERSON, LIVING OR DEAD, WHO HAS MADE EVEN HALF OF THE EFFORTS AND SACRIFICES VICTOR HAS MADE TO UNITE YORUBA LEADERS… AND MAKE THE YORUBA HAVE A FORMIDABLE CENTRAL AUTHORITY?’

THE ABOVE IS JUST ONE OF SUCH INSPIRING, SPIRIT-ELEVATING SUBMISSIONS HE HAS MADE ABOUT ME. IS CHIEF TOLA ADENIYI A FRIVOLOUS PERSON OR SOMEBODY WHOSE MARK AWARDING IS CHEAP? YOU ONLY NEED TO KNOW THE FIREBRAND HE WAS IN HIS HAY DAYS IN THE HISTORY OF JOURNALISM IN NIGERIA AND THE WORLD AT LARGE. HE IS DEFINITELY NOT A CHEAP PERSON. AND SO, I TOOK HIM UP ONE DAY ASKING WHY HE HAS BEEN SO DISPOSED TO AND UNRESERVEDLY RESPECTFUL OF ME? LISTEN TO HIS REACTION:

‘YOU ARE VERY HONEST’
YOU ARE VERY HUMBLE.
YOU ARE NOT A BRAGGARD.

YOU DON’T GOSSIP.
YOU ARE DEEPLY THOUGHTFUL AND SERIOUS-MINDED.

YOU ARE NOT FRIVOLUS.
YOU ARE NOT PETTY.
YOUR MIND IS HIGHLY ELEVATED.

YOU ARE INTELLIGENT AND SCHOLARLY.
YOU ARE SELFLESS.
YOU ARE BOLD AND FEARLESS.

YOU SAY IT AS IT IS. NO EQUIVOCATION.
NO AMBIGUITY.

YOU ARE AN INEVITABLE ORGANIZER.
YOU ARE A VERY ENERGETIC MOBILIZER.

OVER ALL AND ABOVE ALL,
YOU ARE LOYAL TO A FAULT.

YOU ARE DEPENDABLE, RELIABLE,
TRUSTWORTHY AND THOROUGH.
YOU ARE A MAN AFTER MY HEART.

AND I HAVE NO DOUBT IN MY MIND
THAT A PHARAOH WILL COME WHO WILL RECOGNIZE
AND TRULY APPRECIATE YOUR JOSEPH. SOOOON”

AKOGUN TOLA ADENIYI
CANADA 18/4/2021

CHIEF TOLA ADENIYI MADE ME SHED TEARS.

3. JUNE 12 REFERENDUM: MY POSITION

WHY I HAVE RELAYED THE ABOVE TRIBUTES FROM THIS HIGHLY RESPECTED COLOSSUS – CHIEF TOLA ADENIYI – IS NOT FOR THE MERE PURPOSE OF SELF-MAGNIFICATION BUT TO ASSURE THE WORLD THAT THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO KNOW ME INSIDE-OUT AND CAN VOUCH FOR ME ACROSS THE BOARD.

FIRST, LET ME SAY THAT IF THERE IS ONE MAN IN THE WORLD THAT IS GLADDEST ON THE CURRENT TRANSPIRATIONS IN YORUBA WORLD REGARDING THE AGITATIONS FOR FREEDOM THAT HAS NOW SATURATED THE ENTIRE GLOBAL HEMISPHERE, THAT PERSON IS VICTOR TAIWO. YOU ASK ME WHY? PRIOR TO THREE YEARS BACK, THERE WERE NO SUCH HOT AGITATIONS FROM ANY QUARTERS. IS IT AS IF THE CAUSES FOR THE AGITATION JUST NEWLY EMERGED FROM THE HORIZON OR DESCENDED FROM HEAVEN? NO. THEY HAVE ALWAYS BEEN WITH US SINCE OVER A HUNDRED YEARS. BUT THE EYES OF OUR PEOPLE JUST GOT OPENED TO THE EVILS LESS THAN THREE YEARS AGO AND THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD IS NOW SHAKING FROM THE THUNDEROUS VIBRATIONS OF YORUBA AGITATION FOR FREEDOM.

IF OUR PEOPLE ARE JUST ALIVE TO THIS CONSCIOUSNESS TODAY, MY GLADNESS SHOULD BE FOUND IN THE FACT THAT, AFTER ALL, MY CRIES OVER A PERIOD OF 27 YEARS OF MY VISION AND MISSION ARE BEING VINDICATED. WITHOUT BEING IMMODEST, I HAVE GONE DOWN IN RECORD AS THE PIONEER FIGURE OF YORUBA LIBERATION MOVEMENT IN THE WORLD WITH THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE FIRST YORUBA LIBERATION-CLAMOURING ORGANIZATION IN HISTORY WHOSE EXERCISE DATES BACK TO 7TH APRIL, 1994 PRIOR TO THE SPROUTING OF THE VARIOUS OTHER ORGANISATIONS HERE AND THERE JOINING THE TRAIN.

PRYING INTO ALL THE RECORDS OF MY ACTIVITIES FROM DAY ONE UP TO TODAY, THE PRINCIPAL AIMS OF MY ORGANIZATION – OODUA REDEMPTION ALLIANCE – HAVE REMAINED AS FOLLOWS WITHOUT ANY SLIGHTEST MODIFICATIONS.
1. TO LIBERATE YORUBA NATION INTO A SOVEREIGN STATE.
2. TO TRANSFORM THE NEW COUNTRY INTO A FIRST-WORLD AND SUPER-POWER COUNTRY WITHIN A PERIOD OF 10 YEARS BEING THE FIRST AFRICAN COUNTRY TO ATTAIN SUCH STATUS.
3. AND TO BE THE TORCH-BEARER FOR THE REST OF AFRICA.

THUS IF SOME PEOPLE NOW COME UP AT THIS WEE HOUR TO ENGAGE THEMSELVES IN THE CAMPAIGN OF CALUMNY TO SMEAR MY IMAGE OR DENIGRATE THE CREDIBILITY I HAVE BUILT UP ALL MY LIFE, I WANT TO SAY SUCH PEOPLE ARE MERELY WASTING THEIR TIME.

THERE HAVE BEEN CERTAIN AUDIO MESSAGES AND SERIES OF WRITE-UPS FLYING ALL OVER THE MEDIA PLATFORMS NAILING ME TO THE CROSS THAT I HAVE COMPROMISED THE LIBERATION STRUGGLE AND TEAMED UP WITH POLITICIANS TO TRUNCATE THE LIBERATION ASPIRATION FOR MONEY SAKE BY CAMPAIGNING FOR THE INFEASIBLE REFERENDUM SLATED FOR 12 JUNE, 2021.

MY INITIAL REACTION WAS TO IGNORE THEM AND KEEP ON FOCUSING MY TRACK. BUT SOMETHING STRUCK ME OVERNIGHT LIKE A THUNDERBOLT WHICH INFORMED THIS EXERCISE. WHAT WAS IT?
➔ LIKE CEASER’S WIFE, YOU DON’T
➔ ONLY SAY TO YOURSELF THAT YOU
➔ ARE BEYOND REPROACH, YOU HAVE
➔ TO LET THE PEOPLE KNOW THAT YOU
➔ ARE BEYOND REPROACH.

WELL, LET ME CONFESS THAT ASIDE NOT BEING BOTHERED BY PEOPLE’S INSINUATIONS OR NEGATIVE REMARKS ON ME OVER THE ISSUE, I HAVE ALSO RESTRAINED MYSELF FROM MAKING COMMENTS ON THE ISSUE OF THE JUNE 12 REFERENDUM AS A MARK OF RESPECT I HAVE FOR THE AUTHOR OF THE AGENDA WHICH IS MY GOOD BROTHER OTUNBA DEJI OSIBOGUN THE LEADER OF ONE OF THE VIBRANT ORGANISATIONS IN YORUBALAND. BUT NOW THAT I HAVE BEEN BOXED TO THE CORNER TO MAKE MY STORY KNOWN TO THE WORLD, I CAN NO MORE HELP RUNNING THESE NARRATIVES.

YES, AS ALL HAVE GOT TO KNOW, I WAS MANDATED BY THE GREAT OONI OF IFE OBA ADEYEYE ENITAN OGUNWUSI OJAJA II TO BRING ABOUT THE UNIFICATION OF ALL YORUBA ORGANISATIONS FOR THE PURPOSE OF FORMING A UNITED FRONT AS A PREREQUISITE FOR THE GENERAL COORDINATION OF YORUBA AFFAIRS. AND SO, THIS PROGRAMME CAME UP ON THE 25TH OF MARCH, 2021. THE PERSON I CHOSE TO MODERATE THE AFFAIRS OF
THE EVENT AND TO SPEARHEAD THE COMMUNIQUÉ DRAFTING EXERCISE WAS MY HIGHLY RESPECTED OTUNBA DEJI OSIBOGUN. I DOUBT IF I SHOULD ADOPT THE POSITION OF A CAPTAIN TO MONITOR THE DRAFTING OF THE COMMUNIQUE OR CENSOR THE SPEECH THE MAN WAS TO MAKE. AND SO, ALONG THE LINE OF THE RENDITION OF HIS SPEECH AND THE DRAFTING OF THE COMMUNIQUÉ, HE SLOTTED IN THE AGENDA OF REFERENDUM SLATED FOR 12 JUNE, 2021. BUT OUTSIDE THE FACT THAT I WAS THE ANCHOR OF THE EVENT OF THE DAY, THE COMMUNIQUÉ SHOULD GO BEYOND THE PERSON OF VICTOR TAIWO. AND SO, WHETHER I LIKED IT OR NOT, I HAD NO IMMEDIATE LOCUS STANDI TO MAKE ANY OFFICIAL POSITION ON THE MATTER UNTIL WE BRING THE MATTER TO THE LEADERSHIP LEVEL.

BUT PERSONALLY TO ME, I WASN’T IN FOR THE AGENDA AND RIGHT AT THE EVENT, I SAID SO TO THE JOURNALISTS WHO INTERVIEWED ME AT THE EVENT. THOSE AMONG THE JOURNALISTS WHO RECORDED ME ON TAPE WILL BEAR ME WITNESS.

A FEW DAYS LATER, I VISITED OTUNBA DEJI OSINBOGUN TO MAKE HIM EXPLAIN TO ME THE ISSUE OF THE REFERENDUM. IT WAS IN THE COURSE OF OUR DISCUSSION THAT I GOT TO KNOW THAT HE HAD ALREADY PUT ALL STRUCTURES IN PLACE FOR THE EXECUTION OF THE AGENDA. I MADE HIM TO KNOW THE IMPLICATION OF THE PROJECT WHICH I KNOW TO BE TERRIBLE BUT HE SURELY MUST HAVE GOTTEN HIS ACTS RIGHTS. AND TO SAVE ME FROM FURTHER WORRY, I DISCOVERED HE WAS RUNNING THE PROJECT ON THE LABEL OF HIS ORGANISATION, ‘YORUBA KOYA’. END OF STORY. I GOT MYSELF EXITED EVEN THOUGH HE SOUGHT MY SUPPORT.

THEREFORE, MY SUBMISSIONS ARE AS FOLLOWS:
1. I THANK ALL THOSE WHO KNOW MY CHEMISTRY ENOUGH AS TO VOUCH AND FIGHT FOR ME EVEN BEHIND MY BACK ON MY UNCOMPROMISABILITY OR INCORRUPTIBILITY. MAY GOD HONOUR YOU ALL IN GREATER MEASURE.
2. I TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO DECLARE TO THE WORLD THAT FOR VICTOR TAIWO, IT IS EITHER YORUBA OUTRIGHT SOVEREIGNTY OR NOTHING. AND LET ME VOW THAT NOT ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD BANK WOULD BE ENOUGH TO SHUNT ME OF MY TRACK.
3. JUST BEFORE YOU CASTIGATE OTUNBA DEJI OSIBOGUN FOR SPEARHEADING THE AGENDA FOR THE JUNE 12 REFERENDUM, I PRAY THAT HE BE GIVEN THE GRACE OF EXPLANATIONS AS I KNOW HIM TO BE A GOOD YORUBA PATRIOT.

4. THE YORUBA UNITY AGENDA: OONI AND VICTOR TAIWO FACTOR

I WANT TO BEGIN THIS EXERCISE BY PAYING A GLOWING HOMAGE TO MY ROYAL FATHER THE GREAT, LOVABLE AND MOST CARING FATHER OF YORUBA RACE – HIS IMPERIAL MAJESTY OBA ADEYEYE ENITAN OGUNWUSI OJAJA II THE OONI OF IFE.

I AM EARNESTLY CONSCIOUS OF THE FACT THAT SOMEBODY OUT THERE MUST HAVE BEGUN TO GATHER NAILS AND SEARCH FOR A SLEDGE HAMMER TO CRUCIFY ME FOR THIS ELATION OF THE OONI OF IFE BY VICTOR TAIWO. WHY?

RIGHT IN THE SERIES OF THIS COLUMN, I HAVE OPENLY CASTIGATED THE OONI FOR HIS UNFORTHCOMING ATTITUDES TOWARDS THE YORUBA MATTERS. YES, I DID SO IN THE 36TH AND 37TH EDITIONS RESPECTIVELY. I AM NOT A CONTROVERSIAL WRITER. I AM RATHER CONSTANT BASED ON THE RECORD OR FACTS AT MY DISPOSAL. AND SO, I AM NOT RETRACTING THOSE SUBMISSIONS BUT RATHER TO CLEAR THE MIST.

CHIEF BOLA IGE AND I HAD A VERY ENVIABLE AND ROBUST FATHER-AND-SON RELATIONSHIP THROUGHOUT OUR TIME. NO PERSONAL GRUDGE OR QUARREL FOR A MINUTE AS AGAINST SOME PEOPLE’S INSINUATIONS BASED ON MISCHIEF. THE ONLY INCONGRUENCE BETWEEN US WAS HIS ABANDONING OUR YORUBA LIBERATION STRUGGLE TO JOIN THE ABDULSALAMI ABUBAKAR 1999 POLITICAL SHENANIGANISM ALONGSIDE HIS FELLOW POLITICIANS.

WHEN HE BECAME THE MINISTER OF POWER, HE REQUESTED FOR MY CV. FOR WHAT? TO GIVE ME A FEDERAL APPOINTMENT, I SUPPOSE. NOT VICTOR TAIWO. I IGNORED HIM TILL TODAY AND OPTED FOR MY TREKKING ABOUT IN MY DUSTY SHOES CAMPAIGNING FOR AND MOULDING THE STRUCTURES FOR OUR YORUBA LIBERATION IN EXCRUCIATING HUNGER WHEN PEOPLE WERE NOT EVEN LOOKING AT OUR DIRECTION. ESSENTIALLY, THE EMPHASIS IS THAT NOBODY IN THE WORLD HAS SUCH MONEY TO TAKE ME OFF MY TRACK OR MAKE ME AN OVERNIGHT APOLOGIST; NOT EVEN THE OONI OF IFE.

WHEN THE OONI INVITED ME FOR THE COMMISSION IN QUESTION AND I WAS IN AUDIENCE WITH HIM, I PRACTICALLY WORE A STERN LOOK WHILE DISCUSSING WITH HIM. I USED TO STAND TO ADDRESS HIM IN THE PAST BUT THIS TIME I SAT DOWN COMFORTABLY ON THE CHAIR. THEN I CHALLENGED HIM ON WHY HE SHIFTED BASE ON OUR PRIOR DISCUSSION AND HE WAS QUICK TO LET ME KNOW THAT SOMEBODY CLOSE TO ME CAME TO DESTROY AND MALIGN MY PERSON BEFORE HIM – CHARACTER ASSASSINATION – AND HE BELIEVED THE ELDERLY PROFESSOR BASED ON HIS CLOSENESS TO ME. THE PERSON TOLD A LOT OF LIES ABOUT ME FOR REASONS I AM YET TO FATHOM BUT PERHAPS BEST KNOWN TO HIM AND PERSUADED THE MONARCH NOT TO HAVE ANYTHING DOING WITH ME. WOW! IS THE MONARCH GUILTY? AND I ASKED THE KABIYESI TO VERIFY THE AUTHENTICITY OF THE SUBMISSIONS OF THE ASSAILANT ON ME IF HE WOULD FIND ANY. HE WOULD DEFINITELY NEVER FIND ANY. AND WE SETTLED FOR THE WAY FORWARD. IT WAS THEN I SAW THE TRUE PICTURE OF AND THE BURNING SPIRIT IN THE MONARCH WHICH MAKE ME TO APPEAL TO THE YORUBA WORLD TODAY TO CREATE A SPACE IN THEIR HEARTS FOR A RE-APPRAISAL OF THE KING. I HAVE READ A LOT OF DIRTY THINGS WRITTEN ABOUT HIM AND WATCHED A LOT OF VIDEOS DONE TO HIS DENIGRATION BAD ENOUGH TO SLOUGH HIM OF THE HONOUR CONCOMITANT TO HIS THRONE. ESSENTIALLY, FOR THOSE WHO HAVE NEGATIVE IMPRESSION ABOUT HIM, I PRAY FOR A REASSESSMENT ORDER. AND SO, I STAKE MY CREDIBILITY, INTEGRITY AND HONOUR TO VOUCH FOR THE CARING STANCE OF THE MONARCH FOR HIS YORUBA CHILDREN ACROSS THE WORLD. BUT IF TOMORROW I AM PROVED WRONG, REST ASSURED I WOULD BLARE OUT.

5.​ UPDATE ON THE YORUBA UNITY AGENDA:

ONE SONG THAT HAS BEEN ON THE LIPS OF MOST OF OUR PEOPLE IS THE LAMENTATION OVER THE DISUNITY AMONG THE YORUBAS. YORUBAS ARE NOT UNITED. BUT WHO WILL EFFECT THE ATTITUDINAL CHANGE?

ASIDE MY EFFORTS OVER THE DECADES, I WANT TO SPECIALLY PAY HOMAGE TO A GROUP OF PATRIOTS WHO HAVE SELECTED THEMSELVES AND LABOURED SO MUCH TO MY KNOWLEDGE OVER THE MONTHS TO APPEAL TO THE SENSE OF RECONCILIATION AND UNIFICATION OF THE LEADERS VIA ONE CONCILIATORY MEETING OR THE OTHER.

I THEREFORE SAY KUDOS TO THE FOLLOWING PERSONAGES:
1. OLORI MODUPE EKO
2. MRS. ANIKE OJO
3. MR. MOHAMMED ALIYU
4. MR. KAYODE EMOLA
5. CHIEF REMI OLOWOLOBA
6. SISTER TOYIN OJOBARO AND
7. MR. TAJUDEEN RAHEEM.

ON SUNDAY 25TH APRIL, 2021, THIS GROUP HELD A VIRTUAL MEETING WITH ME FOR THE UMPTEENTH TIME AS CONDUCTED FROM LONDON TO SEEK MY HAND ON HOW TO MOVE FORWARD ON THE RECONCILIATION EXERCISE. AND I RESTED THEM ASSURED IN THE ULTIMATISM OF AN AGENDA WE ARE ALREADY PUTTING IN PLACE.

WITHOUT UNNECESSARILY BELABOURING MYSELF, I AM HEREBY PRESENTING THE FOLLOWING DOCUMENT WHICH IS QUITE INSTRUCTIVE:

Dear Sir/Ma,
CENTRAL COORDINATING CENTRE FOR YORUBA AFFAIRS: A SPECIAL INVITATION TO A MEETING

I am hereby writing this August letter to you all concerned as reflected in the above distribution list with absolute humility and respect one can muster in the world to invite you to this August meeting in the month of May.

At the height of disturbance about the grisly and putrifying seemingly perpetual incidence of insecurity and general decadence in the country as it affects Yorubaland and worsened by the threat to our racial life as enhanced by the disjointedness of the forces in Yorubaland, His Imperial Majesty Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi Ojaja II saw it as a matter of responsibility and exigency to effect the rectification of the odious order by (perhaps or basically owing to my humble pedigree as a frontline agent of unity in Yorubaland over the decades) summoning me to his palace and mandating me to call the meeting of all Yoruba groups for the purpose of unity agenda. And great enough, the meeting came up on Thursday 25th March 2021 in Ibadan with resounding success. It was from this event that the idea of creating the Central Coordinating Centre for Yoruba Affairs was established as to be known as Yoruba United (Please note that this is no new alliance, coalition or umbrella body for all Yoruba organisations but the coordinating organ for all Yoruba affairs worldwide.

However, in spite of the beautiful report received by His Majesty the Ooni of Ife and as much appreciative as he was about it, he felt we should do more by bringing into the system the few figures that, for one reason or the other, could not make the meeting. Hence, in our wisdom after consultations with some elders in the land, we came up with the initiative of establishing a 30-man Parliament for the Yoruba nation which will sit to give directions on the affairs of Yorubaland most especially on the overwhelming insecurity menace running us comatose.

To this effect in my humility, I have the mandate of His Imperial Majesty Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi Ojaja II the redoubtable Ooni of Ife to most respectfully invite you to the maiden meeting of the Yoruba United in the capacity of a nominated member of the Parliament.

The meeting has been scheduled under the following order:
Date:​​Thursday 6th May, 2021
Time:​​12.00pm
Venue:​Ooni’s Palace, Ile-Ife
Special Note: Strictly by invitation

Thanks for honouring the clarion call.

Dr. Victor Taiwo
The Royal/People’s Servant

I THINK THE ABOVE SPEAKS LOUD FOR ITSELF.

LET ME ANCHOR HERE FOR TODAY.

THANK YOU ALL FOR READING ME ONCE AGAIN.
