    Cede LAUTECH to one state, Alaafin counsels Oyo, Osun govts

    The Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, has suggested that Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomosho, be ceded to either Oyo or Osun as solution to the lingering crisis between the two owner states.

    The foremost Yoruba traditional ruler gave the advice on Tuesday when he received members of the new  executive of Oyo State Council of Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) in Oyo town.The Nigeria News Agency reports that Oyo State NUJ Chairman, Ademola Babalola, led members of the new executive on a courtesy visit to the Alaafin in his palace.

    Oba Adeyemi said that the lingering crisis would continue unabated unless the two states reached a compromise on a lasting solution to the problem.

    “On LAUTECH, is it possible for two men to marry one woman at the same time without problem? No. The two states will have to sit down together and adopt the necessary solution.

    “These are two states with different educational policies and political affiliation. The best way to resolve this crisis is to cede the institution to one of the states,” he said.

    Oba Adeyemi attributed the impasse between the Federal Government and Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to a disconnect between the duo, urging them to honour every agreement reached.

    “The problem of the Federal Government and ASUU has to do with disconnect between the duo. It is good that the two parties always honour whatever agreement reached to avoid unnecessary crisis,” he said.

    The monarch noted that for democracy to thrive in the country, political and traditional leaders at all level must be able to stand criticism.

    According to the paramount ruler, most leaders in Nigeria do not like criticism, describing it as very unfortunate for democratic development in the country.

    “Our leaders, either political or traditional must be able to take criticism if we really want democracy to thrive in Nigeria. There is no country in the world running the type of constitution we are running in Nigeria.

    “When people criticize me, I sit down and think if what they are critisising me for is true or false, and I adjust,” he said.

    The monarch lauded the contributions of journalists to national growth and development in spite of the dangers attached to the profession.

    Oba Adeyemi said that the media as the fourth estate of the realm had made tremendous impact in moving the country forward.

    “I have also benefited and made name through the media. I am aware of what you face in the course of discharging your duty. Many journalists have been castigated and even detained,” Alaafin said.

    Earlier, Babalola thanked the monarch for his support towards upholding the image of Yoruba nation, describing him as a monarch of note in the country.

    “There is no journalist in Oyo State that has not passed through this palace at one time or the other for story or research. The fatherly role you have been giving to journalists in the last few decades is much appreciated,” he said.

    Babalola pointed out that the purpose of the courtesy visit was to inform the monarch of activities lined up to celebrate the 100 days in office of the new Oyo NUJ executives

    “We decided to pay royal homage to the Alaafin in appreciation of his support to the union, and to receive royal blessing upon the programmes lined up for the celebration of the 100 days in office of the new NUJ executives.

    “We were elected on Dec. 18, 2019, and we will be celebrating our 100 days in office in the next ten days. We thank the Alaafin for providing the kind of leadership Nigeria needs, particularly for the Yoruba Nation,” Babalola said.

    The state NUJ chairman said that some traditional rulers in Yoruba land had been relegated to the background, but Alaafin had sustained the place of the Yoruba traditional institution in the country.

    Queen Moremi Beauty Pageant: More contestants promise to improve lots of women, girls if successful

     Some of the girls shortlisted for the grand finale of the second edition of Queen Moremi Ajasoro (QMA)  Beauty Pageant said that they would use their reign to equip women and girls positively if they emerged winner.

    They disclosed this to the Nigeria News Agency in Lagos through e-mail contacts from their camp in Ile-Ife, Osun, where they were undergoing training ahead of the Dec.3 final show.

    They girls were among the 41 finally shortlisted for the final contest from the over 500 that obtained the forms.  Some of them had last week told NAN what their pet projects would be if they emerged the overall winner.

    Miss Adetola  Aluko, 21, a graduate of Computer Science said that if successful in the contest, she would equip women and girls to build intra and inter generational solidarity that cuts across borders.

    She said that she would also use her reign to help develop leadership capacity in women.

    Adetola also said that she would promote the Yoruba culture and heritage within the country and in the Diaspora as well as help the less privileged, especially, the vulnerable ones.

    Adetola said that her love for her culture and heritage was a major factor that motivated her to register for the project.

    “Queen Moremi Ajasoro ’’ has become a household name in the history of the nation because of her contributions to humanity while alive.

    “Several public places had been named after her such as the female residential halls at the University of Lagos and the Obafemi Awolowo University in Ile-Ife,’’ she said.

    Also, Miss Olagbaju Adele, a 20-year-old student of Linguistics at the University of Ibadan, said she developed interest in the pageant because it would afford her an opportunity to learn more about her culture.

    “I learnt Oriki Moremi (praise singing) during my audition and, if I eventually win the contest, it would be a dream come through.

    “Women were often regarded as second class citizens before but this great queen made a difference. She displayed great courage and selflessness; she had a clear-cut vision to liberate her people.

    “Her leadership is relevant in any society across the globe: preaching peace, unity and progress in our society,” she said.

    Also, Miss Oke Morisayo, 23, an undergraduate of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) Ogbomosho, said she aspired to become a brave and selfless leader as QMA.

    “If I eventually become the second QMA queen, I will organise a supporting platform that will cater for the needy and promote our culture and traditions,” she said.

    The 300-level Environmental Biology student said the history of the queen was synonymous with virtue, tradition, bravery and courage.

    “QMA was an intelligent, beautiful, brave and selfless leader who loved the existence of human beings around her.

    “She was a queen who made service to her people her priority through royalty marriage,” she said.

    NAN reports that Queen Moremi Ajasoro, a princess of the Yoruba people, was married into the royal house of Oduduwa and to Oranmiyan , who was the King of Ile-Ife then.

    Moremi had a son called Oluorogbo, whom she sacrificed to the spirit of the river Esimirin.

    This was the price she had to pay to find a solution to those that were always attacking the residents of Ile-Ife then.

    Moremi defended humanity and was a good example of a present day freedom fighter.

    Queen Moremi Ajasoro Cultural Beauty Pageant was established in 2016 by the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi to further promote the culture and tradition of the Yoruba through girls who will also see QMA as their role model.

    The outgoing queen, Miss Blessing Animasahun would hand over to a new queen that would emerge on Dec. 3, at Oriental Hotel, Lagos.

    According to QMA Ambassador, Princess Ronke Ademiluyi, the new queen after crowning will get a N5million investment fund and a brand new saloon car.

    She will also become the cultural ambassador to the Ooni of Ife for a year.

    Dance wipes away my sorrows, says Smith, professional dancer

    A professional dancer, Anuoluwa Smith, has advised people to always engage in dancing to prolong their life spans and wipe away their sorrows.

    Smith told the Nigeria News Agency in Lagos that dancing had assisted in lifting her spirit whenever she was downcast.

    She also described dancing as a form of exercise to keep the body fit.

    “For me personally, dancing takes away my sorrow, it gives me happiness. Whenever I am down and engaged in dancing, it is all gone.

    “Before, I took to dancing as a part-time job, but now dancing makes me laugh and puts food on my table. At least, it is sustaining me,’’ she said.

    Smith said that she was happy with the opportunity to dance during the last AFRIMA 2017 adding that it was a lifetime experience.

    “I was happy for that opportunity, I never thought in my wildest dream that I could sail through to perform in the concert,’’ she said.

    She recalled that some time ago, she was diagnosed with some complications and for three years, I was on admission in the hospital for some surgeries, but I thank God for my life today.

    Smith, however, warned the public to be wary of dancing to the bad music currently in circulation.

    “People must be careful about what type of dance they engage in,’’ she said.

    Smith said that professional dancing was tougher and more tasking than how the public was viewing it.

    She said that professional dancers used to dissipate a lot of energies and time during training for them to come up with meaningful expressions during performance.

    “It is more of expression of what is contained in the music and to interpret it through dance may be more difficult.

    “Some people will just come on stage, start tweaking dance and say that they are dancing; that is not dancing, it goes a long way. Dance has a lot of definitions.

    “Dance nowadays is a career, and only talented people can go far in it. To excel in dancing, one must be creative and ready to learn new techniques,’’ she said.

    She added that the success of any music or songs would be determined by the dancing steps that accompany it as dancing would make music appealing and meaningful to its listeners.

    Smith, a graduate of Actual Science from the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomoso, said, “The success of music is better assessed when listeners get on to their feet to dance to its flow.

    “It is a determinant of how far any music can go.

    “If music is not danceable, it either means people are not enjoying it, or not passing across meaningful messages to its listeners ’’ she said.
