The Alake and paramount ruler of Egbaland, Oba Michael Adedotun  Gbadebo on Tuesday said he has zero tolerance for corrupt practices and unbalanced judgement, hence, he is difficult to please.

The paramount ruler spoke during a Press conference, organised for his forthcoming 80th birthday at his palace in Ake, Abeokuta on Tuesday.

Alake who stated that despite being an octogenarian, he will continue to work tirelessly for the good of the Egba people,bosted that there are  no better people in Nigeria than the Egba people.

He said "The question I always ask myself is what will the Egbas get out of the years I have spent on the earth as the Alake. In history, you have no better people in this country than the Egbas. I am not being immodest. What I hope the Egaba will get under me is something they have never gotten before. I am a very difficult person to please, so I do not get easily satisfied. I will continue to work to make sure that Egab retains its status as the first in the country. 

Meanwhile, the monarch has appealed to the Nigerian military to decline pressure from any quarter or individual to take over power in the country , following the recent military takeover in some  African countries.

The former military officer contended that the military has no business running governments.

Alake also said that the mistakes of Nigerian political leaders would not stop the country from getting to its eldorado and that Nigeria should not be demoralised by the mistakes of the leaders .

The monarch highlighted that the military has a constitutional role and that governance is not one of them during a one-on-one meeting with journalists on Tuesday in his palace as part of celebrations for his 80th birthday.

“The military has a constitutional role to play and I will appeal to them to keep it because governance is not part of their role.

“If politicians are making mistakes, let them continue to correct themselves and be better people.

While appreciating the new government for its efforts in the security of the country appealed to the general public to report strange happenings.

“ Security is a major government business and the new government is working hard on securing lives and properties of the people.So we must report any suspicious, strange occurrence or anything that can turn out to bring danger.

“ No one will bring money to an insecure country so let us all make it our business to work with the security agencies to make our country a better place”.

Meanwhile, the monarch also urged parents and guardians in the state to warn their children to steer clear of cultism, which is causing turmoil in the state.
