The controversial traditional ruler of Iwo town in Osun State, Oba Abdulrosheed Akanbi, has declared that he was not in any way in a hurry to remarry, stressing that his love for his subjects is time-consuming that only a dedicated woman with the love of the people can bear.
Oluwo of Iwo made this known on Tuesday while speaking during the 8th-Islamic ceremony of his late mother, Suheebat Akanbi, and the 20th year remembrance of his late father, Kolawole Akanbi.
The monarch parted way with his former wife, Chanel Chin, over “personal irreconcilable differences” in December 2019. Since then, there has been no queen in the palace
“I love my mother and took care of her. I advise that you also take care of your mother. I can’t have a wife because I don’t have time. I am here to reform Iwo like my father and I am following his steps.”
“I am certain that I will be remembered for good by the time I leave the throne at 120 years because I use my money, energy and every other resources to serve the kingdom,” he said in Yoruba. My father was good at fighting for people’s right and that’s why I defend myself anytime anyone want to cheat me or my people.”
