27-year-old Ondo Regent celebrates three years on throne

The Regent of Ibule-Soro Kingdom in Ifedore Local Government Area of Ondo State, Her Royal Majesty, Moyinoluwa Falowo, celebrated three years on the throne, on Monday.

27-year-old Falowo was installed as regent in 2019 following the demise of her father, Oba Joseph Falowo.

She took to her Facebook account to celebrate her journey on the throne so far as many of her followers congratulated her with kind words.

For Regent Falowo, “Regency happening to me in my twenties, which is known as a time of self-discovery for any young person, took my game with life to a more different, challenging, and interesting level.”

“In as much as I never anticipated staying on the throne this long, these past three years have stood uniquely as one of the best times of my life. Regency gave me an experience that transcends my being and age,” she posted.

She stated that the opportunity regency gave her to provide leadership to her community was one she would always be grateful for, adding that the lessons, training, and growth that regency added to her life journey had been so rich, astonishing, and beautiful.

Expressing her gratitude, the regent said, “I thank God for everything we have been able to achieve so far as a community. I acknowledge the love and support Ibule-Soro sons and daughters have extended to me. Together we have achieved a lot. Together we shall achieve more, more so as we make sure we soon enthrone a King who will lead us well.

“I appreciate my family, friends, fans, and all persons and organisations that have partnered with me and Ibule-Soro for community development and personal growth. God bless you all. I crave more support and prayers.”

Responding to her fans over her marital status, she said, “For those that are concerned about the restriction my office holds on my getting married, I appreciate your love. I really hope that things get settled soon. I’ll get married in God’s time. Be patient. ‘Rice go soon done, we go chop am together’. Till then, pray for me. Much love.”

Speaking on regency, she stated, “Regency is embedded in the tradition of some communities that believe that the throne should never be vacant following the demise of a king, hence a temporary leadership. The beauty of regency is in how short, not how long. The shorter the duration, the better. When it lasts longer than necessary, it defeats its purpose.

“Women are chosen for regency not because women are considered ‘special’ by such traditions. It is because, with the restrictions placed on such princess who becomes a Regent, she would naturally not desire to stay long on the throne. Women are chosen so that the ‘obaship’ institution does not have to struggle with the succession challenges that male regency poses.

“Regency is a good one for women to attain leadership in monarchy, considering the patriarchal society we live in, yet with unfair terms.”
