Agba ki wa loja, ki Ori omo titun o wo. Thé infants heads does not bend when the elders are in the market.
When a mother backs her child in the old days, there are tendencies that then infants head/neck might bend at the mothers back due to the woman’s activities particularly in the market place. When this happens, it’s only the elderly that would understand and quickly call the attention of the mother to help correct the neck of the baby to avert the dangers and consequences of leaving it for long. If not done quickly, it would really affect the baby.
This proverb is used to charge someone in the shoes of the elderly position of authority in a setting or organization, that he/ she can’t be around and watch things go wrong without doing anything about it according to #Oroda.
This great proverb strongly backed the decision of those behind the emergence of Hon. Adisa at the time to help the administration of the not too young to run current Executive Chairman, Princess Samiat Abolanle Bada to succeed because thé infants heads does not bend when the elders are in the council.
Scholars also posited that an elder without wisdom, knowledge, wits, sixth sense and leadership attributes are like the young shall grow and any young shall grow with the highlighted qualities of an elder coupled with highly sophisticated, experienced, exposure are like the elders. Consequently, leadership is not by age.
Also, 10years old cattle herders in Nigeria practically corroborates these scholars undisputable facts.
To a great extent all these validated the leadership qualities in the 42 years old Agboyi Ketu Lcda Executive Chairman, Mayor Dele campared to his counterparts, has oftentimes commended by lawmakers in the state Assemby and the people of Kosofe without community boundaries, not necessarily his elderly vice Chairman any form of mentorship impact.
So, after a war like series of meetings as reliably informed the odds favoured Hon. ( Alhaji) Mukhaila Adisa, the current vice chairman of Ikosi Isheri Lcda based on “Agba ki wa loja, ki Ori omo titun o wo , commitment and loyalty to the party since the days of Alliance for Democracy as LGA clerk to the All Progressives Congress ( APC).
We don’t spread all manners of clothes in the sun. So as to encourage the young woman in delivering the mandate entrusted with her onbehalf of the good people of Ikosi Isheri, Kosofe. However, the last 100 days developments in governance and politics of Ikosi Isheri indicates it is time for the vice Chairman, Adisa to leave above board by providing the required conciliation, réconciliation, mediation, advice as and when due to all the stakeholders to justify the fatherly figure that favoured his emergence henceforth.
Princess Samiat Abolanle Bada 100days should have spent in the office rather than House of Assemby.
Across Lagos state it’s mostly executive versus the legislative Arms fighting over non releasing of official cars, allowances, hundreds of thousands for councilors commmunity projects, misappropriation, Spending public funds without appropriation among others, rather than Councilor versus Councilor over not saying good morning, how was your night and Where someone loyalty lies within the same party.
The crisis that rocked the legislative arm rechoes the popular sayings of the House leader, Hon. Usman Ajibola, who oftentimes say during the days of the late Chairman Engr. Abdulfatai Oyesanya that” We are not elected to fight the Executive arm. apparently saying what the people of Ikosi Isheri witnessed under his predecessor in 2014 over the failed attempts to impeach the council chairman will not repeat itself again.
He is always quick to add that” We are not rubber stamp or pencil lawmakers”. The latest event and the decrypted meeting outcomes from the Lagos State House of Assemby proved otherwise.
It’s more worrisome that all the ranking lawmakers and leaders could not caution the masquerade before hitting the Lagos Ibadan Expressway behind them for an outsider, Lagos House Of Assembly to mediate in the crisis which validated the earlier narratives on the kind of love that exist between the people representatives on the platform of All Progressives Congress in Kosofe.
However, if the above counsel to the vice Chairman Adisa and the party leaders on public good to the Political gladiators is seen as unsolicited. No problem about it will be an added advantage for more developing stories content postings to our global audience to keep them informed on how responsible and responsive entrusted with global mandate are conducting themselves in Kosofe, Lagos, Nigeria.
