ANOTHER ROYAL VISIT: OONI TO VISIT AWUJALE ON FRIDAY
Newly crowned Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, will on Friday, January 29, 2015, pay another royal visit to the Awujale of Ijebuland and one of the most respected monarchs in the country, Oba Sikiru Kayode Adetona.
The reason for the visit is not known. But it can’t and won’t be far away from matters concerning the Yoruba race and Nigeria in general. It will also afford the two first class traditional rulers the opportunity to know each other better.
The Ooni, it would be recalled, had only days back visited the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi. The visit attracted massive media mention – especially because Oba Ogunwusi’s predecessor, late Oba Okunnade Sijuwade and the Alaafin never really enjoyed a cordial relationship. Their disagreement bordered majorly on supremacy, which his successor is obviously not interested in.
