Today was the formal coronation of the 51st Ooni of Ife; Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Ojaja II. The splendorous ceremony was held at the Palace Square in the ancient city of Ife, Osun State and attended by Nigeria’s elite, which included the Vice President of Nigeria; Vice president Yemi Osinbanjo, the Sultan of Sokoto, Amirul Mumineen Sultan Muhammadu Sa'ad Abubakar IV; Governor Akinwunmi Amode- current governor of Lagos- former governor of Lagos state; Bola Ahmed Tinubu and several Nigerian artistes.
The new Ooni, looking regal in his royal robes, made a speech after giving the staff of Office by the Osun State Governor; Governor Aregbesola and watching him speak with so much sincerity and charm, it’s no wonder he was chosen as late Oba Sijuade’s successor. Sincerity and commitment are two main virtues of any ruler and that is what his majesty has. Like he said, this is a new dawn for Ife and I wish him a long and prosperous reign.
