No history book ever said Benin founded Lagos.

Imagine! This protege of the King at Ife comes to Lagos… the Governor rolls the red carpet to welcome him. Lagos people embraced him with open arms. Only for him to start moonlight stories This is what we say about Yoruba people. We are too accommodating. Will he go to Onitsha, get a warm welcome from its people, and talk about how Onitcha Ado, a Benin noble left to found Onitsha kingdom?

This is the same arrogance that makes a people run from their erosion-cursed lands to survive in Yorubaland, only to show gratitude with reckless disrespect. When he went to Ife to pay homage to his ancestors brought back home from Benin to be buried, he did it without any press crew. No history book ever said Benin founded Lagos. Our history books say Aworis founded Lagos and its first leader. Ogunfunminire came from Ile Ife. The monarchy in Benin has evolved into a joke.

Its recent kings suffer a terrible complex that makes them do anything for attention. A word of advice for the current Oba. Learn from history. Anyone who corrodes the self-respect of Yoruba people always ends in disgrace. Your grandfather joined with the enemies to attack Awolowo.

Thinking he would become a revered figure in the Midwest. Only for the people he worked with to disgrace him, Scrap his BDPP party, and impose Osadebey as the new premier as well as sideline him for the Obi of Agbor. Your neighbors who crossed the lines with Yoruba people ended with Kwashiorkor.
