He searched and low and behold, he found such a town in Nigeria, it’ll be home for the next 50 years of his life. When he got to Ilesha, he became a part of an ongoing revival there led by Apostle Ayo Babalola. He ended up becoming a mentor to Apostle Babalola and many other known christian leaders in Nigeria. He was the spiritual father to Archbishop Benson Idahosa. Benson Idahosa testified of how God specifically gave him the name of Ilesha and told him to go look for a white man there who will mentor him.

For a student of history, it is difficult to accept the accusation against Nigeria that Nigeria has not been fair to the Yoruba nation. As I have said above, the Yoruba people and the Biafran people have occupied every political, economic and military position in the Nigerian nation. As a matter of fact Yorubas are the most privileged people group in Nigeria.

Okay, if the Yoruba nation wants a monarchy system of rule, who will be the King? Who will become the sovereign monarch? Where will the kingdom be? Is it the OOni of Ife or the Alaafin of Oyo? Won’t the Awujale of Ijebuland or the Alake of Egbaland want the right to the stool? Where will you put the Orangun of Ila who also is a direct descendant of Oduduwa?

Contrary to this, with the emergence of Oduduwa Republic, who are those that will be the citizens? Are they not the current Yoruba people?

Great nations are great not because of geography or who they cohabit with in the country. Great nations are not built by the virtues of their wealth but by the wealth of their virtues. Without every citizen being committed to the greatness of the nation by consciously imbibing cultures of diligence, honesty, integrity, discipline etc., there will be no great nation inspite of any name we choose to call ourselves.

If by genetic components, Nigerians are the same, then why do we hate one another so much? Why do we fight so much? Why do we give room for a lot of infightings? If over 500 tribes live in Nigeria and they speak more than 300 languages, why don’t we see our diverse languages and cultures as a beautiful thing? Why can’t we all see that we are related?
