   ARO OF AKURE, SENIOR HIGH CHIEF TONY FALOWO BLAMES FORSAKEN OF TRADITIONAL HABIT FOR LACK OF LOVE AMONG FAMILIES.




The Aro of Akure, Senior High Chief Chief Tony Falowo has attributed the loss of love among family members to disregard for traditional methods of family living. 




The Seniof High Chief spoke in Akure on Friday during the celebration of the Odun Ijesu Tuntun (new yam) annual Festival in his palace in Akure. 
He explained that family heads used to eat with their children and the entire household thereby cementing their relationship with genuine love

According to him, such practice was spiritually binding and made the love between the family genuine and everlasting.




"Our fathers passed this tradition of either eating with the wife and children or pass the food to them after eating a little. This practice obtained in the Aro's  and other chiefs palaces. It is the negligence of this age long way of life that sent love out of different homes today. 
These days, you hear fathers using their children for money rituals, children killing their parents. Life was not like this in those days.

Yoruba have our own unifying  ways of living, which made us a disciplined and distinguished set of people, before we embraced foreign civilisation and culture at the expense of ours. This has led to the unwholesome ways of life in the family and society at large. We need to retrace our steps before it gets too late.
