Amid the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the call for volunteers to join the Ukrainian army to help fight for her homeland, His Royal Highness oba Adekunle Makama, Tegboson III has begged the federal government to stop Nigerian youths from volunteering to join the Ukrainian army. The autocrat said the action could turn out to be counterproductive if not checkmated.

This was made known in a statement signed by him in his palace on Thursday march 3rd. He furthered expressed that these young Nigerians who are patriotic should rather confront the Boko Haram and other many security issues thriving in our country.

Olowu explained that other countries are currently seeking to find a substantial solution, letting the youths join the ukranian army would amount to Nigeria taking sides and contributing troops and can result into a diplomatic row because of our citizens present in both Russia and Ukraine.

Our motto is: ‘We stand for the truth, irrespective of who tells it’. Driven by this philosophy, our aim has been to create a platform where every voice, every narrative – provided they are decently expressed –  is allowed expression. Our belief is that by promoting unfettered competition of ideas, the truth will eventually emerge. Obviously, doing this while resisting any temptation to be captured by any special interest or tendency makes survival as an online newspaper more challenging. This is why we will appreciate any support from our readers:
