You Have A Lot To Teach Nigerian Monarchs — Soun Of Ogbomoso Tells Ooni

The Soun of Ogbomoso, Oba Ghandi Olaoye, has said that Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has a lot to teach monarchs across the country.

Oba Olaoye stated this when he visited Oba Ogunwusi in his palace on Wednesday.

The Ooni of Ife described Oba Olaoye’s ascension to the throne of his forebears as divinely ordained, noting that Ogbomoso is an ancient city in Yoruba land with immeasurable economic and historical significance.

Oba Ogunwusi said “I remember about six years ago when we met in the United States during your days as a clergyman, everyone around you testified to your uprightness and just nature.

“These are the virtues that have given me confidence that your emergence as the Soun of Ogbomoso will be beneficial to the ancient city.”

Oba Ogunwusi advocated for unity in the country, particularly in Yorubaland.

He commended traditional rulers nationwide for their efforts in ensuring that the country remained united for the betterment of all.

In his address, Oba Olaoye said “Long before I ascended the throne, I have always admired the conduct of the Ooni and I cannot, but say that he has a lot to teach all Obas across Yoruba land.

“I am happy to have witnessed the huge cultural displays here today because I believe this cannot be found elsewhere.

“We have ours in Ogbomoso and your preservation of the prestigious Yoruba heritage is a motivation for us to even do more in that regard,” Oba Olaoye said.
