Oniru Stool: Aggrieved Family Reconciles With Oba Lawal




One of the aggrieved families in the Oniru ruling houses, the Omowunmi Abisogun royal family, has reconciled with the Oniru of Iru kingdom, Oba Gbolahan Lawal.

Counsel to the family, Mr Monsur Babatunde-Dauda, disclosed this at a reconciliation meeting, held at the Oniru palace, Victoria Island, Lagos on Sunday.

Babatunde-Dauda expressed the family’s readiness to withdraw all the cases challenging the emergence of the traditional ruler as the Oniru in the court.

He said that the family had come together to reconcile with the royal father and wish him well.

Babatunde-Dauda said that the decision was taken after observing the all-inclusive leadership style of Oba Lawal.

Crystal News reports that this development is coming almost two years after the traditional ruler’s ascension to the throne of his fore-bearers as the 16th Oniru, on June 20, 2020.

The Omowunmi family of the Abisogun ruling house and other families had challenged Lawal, who is from the Ewunmi faction of the family in court over his eligibility to the throne.

Babatunde-Dauda said that the aggrieved family had claimed that their faction was more eligible to the stool, adding, however, that they had since changed their mind.

He said that the family was in the palace to make peace with the traditional ruler, wish him well and join hands with him to take Iru land to greater heights.

“We are ready to withdraw the case against the throne and we appeal to other aggrieved members to toe the same path.

“This is the first step in the reconciliation process. We are still coming back to finalise it in a big way. All members of the Omowunmi-Abisogun royal family are in support of Oba Lawal.

“We are ready to join hands with him for the good of Iru kingdom,” he stated.

Responding, the traditional ruler said that he had been operating an open and all-inclusive leadership in the kingdom since his ascension to the throne, adding that he was happy to receive the aggrieved members of the Abisogun family.

He said that it was about time that all members of the Abisogun royal family came together.

“I am here and I have come to stay. I will be here for a very long time, by the grace of God.

“All the resources needed to develop this kingdom, God will provide it. All we need is to come together to grow Iru land.

“We will set up a committee to incorporate the new family members that have come to join us. We will give all rights and entitlements to the family as part of the royal Abisogun family to grow Iru land. I will give you all that you deserve.

“I am happy to receive the head of Kabiawu family branch of Abisogun ruling house, Alhaja Afusat Kabiawu, and other leaders and elders of Oniru in the royal family,” he said.

On her part, Kabiawu said that all the ruling houses were one united family, adding that there was no more disagreement over the stool.

She pledged that the entire members of the family would work together for the development of the kingdom.

The World Celebrates Quintessential Architect, Princess Fifi Ejindu at 60





Princess Fifi Ejindu

Unarguably, Fifi Ejindu is living up to the description of her name, Offiong, which means Full Moon. In her six decades of existence, the quintessential woman illuminates during a time of heightened emotions and adds brilliant colours to the lives of many in need.

First, as a wife, her husband cannot wish for a better lover, soul mate and ‘gist’ mate. As a mother, the sophisticated and elegant woman is sweet and wonderful, like her middle name, Ekanem, which means ‘Sweet Mother’. This is seen in the way she raised her children. But her biological children are not only the beneficiaries of her motherly care. Anyone who has crossed paths with her will easily testify to her tenderness.

Even in her business, her profile is continually on the rise. Her competitors easily agree that she is blessed with the proverbial Midas touch!

Indeed, it is no exaggeration to say that the princess’ life epitomises a tenacity of purpose. Her ability as a strategist and winner has never been in doubt. Every move she makes, either in her business or private life, has never escaped the attention of newshounds; she is a delight to professional journalists and biographers.

A well-loved woman by members of her immediate environment, Ejindu is acknowledged as one of the few successful individuals who see the need to give back to society as a priority.

The light-skinned princess is one of the few women whose beauty would make any full-blooded man drool. She is not an attention-seeker, but if you meet her at a social event, you will pause to appreciate her God-given endowments. Were there a beauty competition for people her age, this drop-dead beauty will certainly come tops. So many features, including her curvature, come-hither-look and shape, will qualify her for the diadem. Such is the power of her beauty, even as she clocks 60.

At her age, Ejindu still boasts glowing skin. It was all these rare qualities, in addition to her commanding dress sense, that usually make her the cynosure of eyes at any public event. So, whenever her birthday is approaching,  her family, friends and others who have benefitted from her large-heartedness and benevolence always see the day as another golden opportunity to celebrate her. The eulogies, no doubt, usually come in torrents.

It was  gathered that they often do this out of deep respect for the woman with the uncommon milk of kindness. Surprisingly, however, as she clocked 60 yesterday,  Saturday, May 21, 2022,  the woman did not see the day as significantly different from the others. She was grateful to the Creator for the gift of life. She celebrated the day with her families and close friends while she also used the opportunity to sing songs of praise to her Creator for the journey so far.

The philanthropist’s passion for empowering the African youth is demonstrated through the NGO she founded known as the “African Arts and Fashion Initiative”, with the mission to ignite the modern African generation in arts and fashion by driving youths into various fields of their desire through fundraisers, scholarships.
