Today , Chiefs in Ile – Iere were to have met at the home of Oloye Orawale Oranfe to deal with matters related to the well being of their communities.
Only three Chiefs showed up .
What is the matter? At many fora one can hear Elders , Chiefs and devotees complaining about the lack of progress and cohesiveness in the Orisa / African sacred science community. How can we progress when those who mouth progress and Unity do not show up at meetings that they have convened. Is ti that Itadogun, Ancestral rites and other shrine obligations and meetings supersede the importance and relevance of Council Meetings ?
The author of this article does not want to take a condemnatory approach, but he certinaly wishes to advice those who cannot contact the Akowe if they can’t attend meetings should forfeit their right of condemnation of the lack of progress in our community if they themselves cannnot be exemplary in their conduct and attendance of meetings constituted to address the advance of our community. The work of the Chief’s Council concerns all devotees and the y need to be aware of what is taking place. For too long the Olutoo has remained silent on these matters and hope that this approach of public accountability to our devotees allow us to respond adequately to our responsibilities.
May Orisa ati Eegun help us to resolve this challenge.
