Oluwo Reacts To ‘Viral’ Letter Demanding N20m From Governor Oyetola To Wed Kano Princess

The Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrosheed Akanbi, has denied writing the governor of Osun State, Gboyega Oyetola, to ask for the governor’s support for a planned wedding in Kano State.

A letter letter dated February 8, 2022, had gone viral on Friday that the Oluwo solicited money from Governor Oyetola for the Kano wedding.

However, Press Secretary to Oluwo’s Palace, Alli Ibraheem, while reacting to the viral letter in a statement made available to Naijassador on Friday, said it was fake and did not emanate from the palace of Oluwo.

The statement read,

“While we commend the enlightened public for their sense of fair judgement, we want to categorically state it that the letter is fake and did not emanate from the palace of Oluwo.

“The said letter lacks basic in-house styles of Oluwo’s palace correspondence. Oluwo always append his personal signature while writing the government. Equally, the font in the letter is not our official style. At the said date on the letter, Oluwo was not in the state up till now. And his secretary has no audacity, whatsoever to sign on behalf of His Majesty while communicating with the government.

“The letter was orchestrated by mischievous people whose mission is to discredit the palace. Marriage is a personal affairs. There is no marriage venture too big for Oluwo to finance on his own. Those circulating such should exercise caution. Queen is coming but not in haste of the public demand.

“We enjoin reasonable individual to get their facts before jumping on the bandwagon,” Alli Ibraheem stated.
