The Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Adewale Akanbi, is presently attending the Osun State Traditional Rulers Council Meeting at the palace of the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi.
This is the first time of attending the meeting since he ascended the throne almost the same time as the Ooni in 2015.
His decision to attend this time around is as a result of the Obas who prevailed on him to attend after they noticed that he has never attended any meetings with them since he ascended the throne.
The Olojuo of Ido Osun, Oba Aderemi Adedapo, who is the secretary to the Council of Obas and about 40 other traditional rulers were also in attendance.
The Ooni of Ife, who arrived at the venue of the meeting last, went round and greeted all the traditional rulers one after the other. All the traditional rulers stood up to acknowledge his greetings as he proceeded to preside over the meeting
Oba Ogunwusi said, “It has been long since we held this meeting. The meeting is usually held on a monthly basis. This is not the time to point accusing finger at anybody.
“The Timi (of Ede) came to me and told me that he would not be here because he was traveling out and that he had scheduled the trip before the meeting was called. So also is the Orangun of Ila.
“I greet the Oluwo specially. Like I always say, all of you left here. I am the caretaker here. Unity and the development of our state is very important.
“Some traditional rulers have departed the world since our last meeting. The Olubosin of Ifetedo, Salu Edun Abon and Olulamokun of Yakoyo.
“We should portray ourselves the way we should. We should carry ourselves with dignity and royalty. We should unite and stand as one. Our meeting is about how to bring about development to our state and the nation.
“I greet the Oluwo special, especially being his first time of coming here. Nobody is asking you not to come here. This is your house.”
A surrogate mother has given birth to a baby boy in China four years after his parents died in a car crash, Chinese media reported.
The deceased couple were undergoing fertility treatments before the fatal accident in 2013.
The couple's parents fought a drawn-out legal battle to gain access to the couple's fertilized embryos, kept in a hospital in the eastern city of Nanjing.
The baby boy - nicknamed 'Tiantian,' or 'sweet' in Mandarin - was born on December 9 to a Laotian surrogate, the Beijing News reported Tuesday.
Surrogacy is illegal in China, forcing those who can afford it to look for potential options abroad.
'He's always smiling. His eyes are like my daughter's, but he looks more like his dad,' new grandmother Hu Xingxian, told the state-run newspaper.
The grandparents had to clear several hurdles to transport the embryos out of China and prove the paternity and nationality...
Former French international, Marcel Desailly has criticized
the current situation at Stanford Bridge which he claims has made the Chelsea side perform below what they achieved last season.
Chelsea could benefit from selling Eden Hazard, says Marcel Desailly, with the funds brought in allowing them to strengthen elsewhere.
The Blues have often looked to their Belgian forward for inspiration, with the 27-year-old having worked his way into a position alongside the global elite.
Hazard has, however, been generating transfer talk for some time now, with European heavyweights such as Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain often linked with big-money bids.
