Fresh Letter Seeks N50m Support For Oluwo Royal Wedding



Another letter seeking financial support for the forthcoming royal wedding of Oluwo of Iwoland Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi and a princess from Kano State has surfaced online.

The fresh letter was signed by the Babalaje of Iwoland, Alhaji (Barr). Kudaisi Ismail Toyin.

It emerged after the Oluwo debunked a viral letter seeking N20m support from Osun State Government on Friday for the wedding.

Osun State Government noted the viral letter was a failed attempt by mischief makers to bring it and Governor Adegboyrga Oyetola into “a collision course with the citizens”.

Kudaisi said the fresh letter is a surprise arrangement among chiefs to honour Oba Akanbi.

He however said the monarch was not aware of the arrangement and letter.

A copy of the letter sighted by The Nation, on February 7, 2022, was titled: ‘Notification of royal wedding of HRM, Oba, Dr. AbdulRasheed Adewale Akanbi Telu 1, and a princess of Ado Bayero dynasty’.

He said: “A few of the High Chiefs of Iwoland have consequently mandated me to constitute a committee to plan and see to the success of the wedding with a befitting royal ceremony.

“At the inaugural meeting of the committee, we arrived at a modest tentative budget of N50 million to cover the traditional wedding Tambaya (introduction); Kai Kaya (engagement) and aqdu Nikkai.

“The royal traditional wedding in Kano will be rounded up with a reception for the princess.”
