The Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrosheed Adewale Akanbi has counselled King Charles III, the new king of the United Kingdom to adopt policies that will sustain and promote the monarchical system in his reign.
Recall that King Charles III acceded to the throne on Thursday, September 8, 2022, upon the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II.
In a congratulatory statement made available by Alli Ibraheem, his Chief Press Secretary, Oba Akanbi added that such would strengthen and brighten the hope of not only the parliament but also the subjects in the institution.
The statement noted that, “having the trust of the parliament and that of the people is sacrosanct. It will not only strengthen the monarchy System, but will also endear people to the revered institution. To enjoy this trust, I enjoin King Charles to improve the tempo of humanity service and cut costs. Cutting the cost of maintenance is in respect of the global economic challenges.
“The Monarchy in modern times should be seen alleviating sufferings of subjects and not about amassing wealth. The happiness of the people and their welfare is the wealth of a king! Times are changing and conservative Monarchy should move with time as conservative progressive. Sustainability of Monarchy in the 21st century is on the test all around the world and the Monarchical institution needs to be preserved because without Monarchy, there is no tradition and culture!
“How do we sustain this priceless Monarchy institution for thousands of years and for the future? We have to protect this institution at all costs.
“Once again, I congratulate him on his ascension to the throne. His reign shall be filled with more achievements to the glory of the institution.”
