Gen. Adeyinka Adebayo (Rtd.) now Asiwaju of Yoruba

According to Vanguard, the Yoruba Council of Elders, YCE, yesterday conceded the controversial title of Asiwaju (leader) of Yoruba to the former Military governor of defunct Western Region, Major- General Adeyinka Adebayo (rtd).

Since the demise of the late Chief Obafemi Awolowo, who was the  holder of the title, a lot of interests have evolved in the region on who occupies the coveted title.

The council of elders otherwise known as ‘Igbimo Agba Yoruba' and the entire Yoruba nation, in a memo approved the nomination and acceptance of the President of Igbimo Agba Yoruba, Major-General Adeyinka Adebayo (rtd) as the Asiwaju of Yoruba nation in Nigeria and diaspora forthwith.
