A big iroko has fallen, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu mourns Alaafin of Oyo
A former governor of Lagos state and the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has described the late Alaafin of Oyo Oba Lamidi Adeyemi III as a big Iroko tree. Stating that the big Itroko tree has fallen, Tinubu added that he is saddened by the transition of the royal father also known as the Iku Baba Yeye.
In a statement signed personally by the APC leader and sent to Legit.ng, Tinubu said that after ascending to the royal throne at the age of 31, Alaafin became one of the most influential, greatly respected traditional rulers in Yorubaland, Nigeria and indeed Africa and beyond.
"With his transition, a big Iroko has fallen. His passing was an auspicious era in the ancient Oyo Kingdom, but also for the Yoruba and the entirety of the black race. An elder statesman and patriot, Alaafin Adeyemi was bold and courageous. He spoke truth to power. His interventions in national affairs helped the nation navigate difficult moments and helped usher in a more just society."
