The Oluwo of Iwoland, Oba (Dr.) Abdulrosheed Adewale Akanbi has received the award of Africa monarch of the year.
The African Custodian Magazine believed Oluwo deserves to be awarded as the ‘Monarch of the Year 2021’ for his exemplary leadership quality that has changed the narrative of kingship. Also, his contributions to the advanced development of people and community.
His Imperial Majesty, Ọba AbdulRọsheed Adewale Akanbi, was notified on September 1, 2021, by the African Custodian Magazine ‘Monarch of the Year Award’.
The award presentation ceremony came up on November 28, 2021 at the prestigious Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Alausa. Ikeja.
The African Custodian Magazine celebrated its 8 years of projecting the continent of Africa to the world. It deemed it fit to give awards to recognise individuals and institutions that have shaped Africa in their respective engagements in 2020/2021.
In his statement, the media aide of Oluwo, Ibraheem Alli said Oba Adewale could be described as a liberator from the poverty of the mind.
Ibraheem Alli said: “Oluwo, out of many of his credible credits, is a liberator, counselling the youth on productive use of their mental resources. Simply put, liberation from the poverty of the mind.”
He continued: “His intention has always been to have a new set of ideas capable of presenting a new hope for the aspiring generation. He has attracted attention to Iwo which is paying off and continuously do. Should we talk of the Federal College of Education, Fortress University, Westland University, National Library etc.”
“When I checked last night, Oluwo was less than 7-year on the throne. He reigns like a centennial (100years) monarch. He is a virile monarch of credit, merit and mark (CCM). His enthronement as Oluwo empowered him to do more for humanity.” Ibraheem Alli concluded.
