Real estate mogul turned Ooni of Ife speaks on new position
Prince Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi has been appointed as the 51st Ooni of Ife.
Previously known as real estate magnet, the newly appointed leader is speaking for the first time.
In an exclusive interview with the Guardian Newspaper, the Ooni appreciated God for his new position, and spoke on the election process, amongst other things.
“I thank God that it was peaceful all the way. This is dedicated to God and Nigerian youths, particularly, our youths in Ife. With my emergence, our young people now have a voice in nation building and development. In the course of my aspiration to be the Ooni stool, I faced stiff opposition, but I thank God that at the end of the day, it has turned out this way and I give glory to God. It is my ardent prayer that the Lord will continue to guide us all and bestow us with great wisdom to carry out our incumbent tasks. I use this opportunity to call upon all the sons of Ile-Ife that were alongside with me in the race for the stool to heed to my call that we work harmoniously to align our goals for the sake of posterity and Ile-Ife. Together we shall not lose sight of the values and tradition that have made us the greatest nation of black people on earth.”
Prince Ogunwusi has received congratulations from Senate President, Abubakar Bukola Saraki, the governor of Lagos state, Akinwunmi Ambode, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara, the governor of Ondo state, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko, and Omo Oba Sikiru Adetona Ayedun of Giesi Ruling Family.(Moniki –Lugba}
