The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, has revealed that the Ife kingdom has one of the largest deposits of gold in the country.

He said “The gold I’m wearing I know where it came from in the ground. They brought gold for me from Paris and the United Arab Emirate. They called it millions of Naira. I said why should I buy it. We have gold in Nigeria but they said nobody is exploring gold. My kingdom has one of the largest gold deposits in Nigeria. I took the gold and discovered it is a belt that runs all the way to Sokoto.

“No company in this country has done that exploration. It is still underground lying there yet we are suffering as a nation. Nigeria has the most purified gold in the world. I am very proud to say I am putting on Nigerian gold. My bid: they go all the way to Benin to look for it. We are passing through challenges as a nation but what are we doing individually to make this country a great nation?”

The monarch said this while calling on Nigerian leaders to lead by example and patronise made in Nigeria goods.

The Ooni, who wondered why the country abandoned the exportation of cocoa, Kola nut, and palm oil, said crude oil is a distraction.

He also said his life is a testimony of the goodness of God, adding that there is “no King on Earth is above God.God is the creator of mankind and it is God that makes it possible for the enthronement of any king.”

The Ooni also said “Anyone who says there is no God bring that person to me as I am a living example of what God can do. He is the Alpha and Omega. Those who are saying there is no God definitely need to encounter God. Ascending this throne, rising to this height was not my making, nobody’s making.”

Seun Kuti recently slammed the Ooni of Ife for pushing aside Yoruba traditional beliefs and claiming Jesus as his father.
