The Paramount Ruler of Iwoland, HIM Oba Abdulrosheed Adewale Akanbi, has revealed he got a spiritual message to confer Aare Title on the renowned journalist, Chief Dele Momodu.

He described Dele Momodu as a disciplined man who grew up and sustain an his Honourable lifestyle. He tasked him to use his title to harness development in Iwoland.
“Dele Momodu got the Aare Title in a divined but unexplainable circumstance. I was in Bowen University for a program and accidentally met Dele Momodu at the institution campus. Without premonition, I pronounced Aare. I kept pronouncing it repeatedly. He was surprised too. I then instructed my press secretary, Alli Ibraheem to make a statement. I never pay attention but still wondering, why Aare? Most times, I don’t get the meaning and implication of my message immediately. Even, my ardent lovers don’t comprehend instantly but the few deep do. God told me to confer Aare Title on Dele Momodu”
“The inspiration I got convinced me to honour him free of charge. God told me i need him to take Iwoland to the promised land. And for the short period even before his installation, I’ve been seeing the impacts. The primus is the facilitation of the rehabilitation of Iwo-Ibadan road by the Federal Ministry of Works”
“I enjoin him to continue on the path of honour. I’ve the assurance in him to complement my dream of catapulting Iwoland to a great and an enviable height”
