My attention has been drawn to a statement credited to my good self alluding to the idea that His Royal Highness, Oba Rilwan Akiolu, the Oba of Lagos rode with the APC Presidential Candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari during the APC presidential rally in Lagos. This is not correct.
Media reports on the issue have grossly misrepresented my concerns, which were primarily targeted at the APC and its spokesperson, Alhaji Lai Mohammed and not His Royal Highness, Oba Akiolu.
The Oba of Lagos, His Royal Highness, Oba Rilwan Akiolu is my traditional father and as such, with the utmost sense of respect and responsibility, I hold him and his revered office in high esteem. I regret any inconveniences this misrepresentation may have caused His Royal Highness and his office.
