The king argued that the continent was never conquered as it is popularly believed. He stated that Africans rather gave themselves up.

He said that he was the first king to apologise for slavery in England at the Commonwealth. Oba Abdulrasheed went further to say that the Europeans only came to the continent as explorers.

Sharing an illustrative narrative, he said the kings of the olden days used humans as a means of exchange for what they wanted to get from the white people.

He said:

“If white men really want slavery, do you think slavery would have been abolished. Slavery did not even taken 300 years.”

When Bisola wanted to know if what he meant was that slavery was a choice for Africans, replied “we sold our own children…”

He termed African heartless, saying the Indians, Chinese and Japanese never sold themselves out like Africans did.
