Currently, the coronation of the new Ooni of Ife, Adeyeye Ogunwusi, is being held.
Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo while delivering his goodwill message on behalf of the federal government to the newly crowned King, said:
“As we celebrate with pomp and pageantry today, we are reminded of the great responsibility that is thrust on you as the representative of the virtuous”.
He asked the new Ooni to take the responsibility of leading the people on the path of virtue very seriously.
He prayed that God would give the monarch the wisdom and courage to lead the people.
Ogunwusi becomes the 51st Ooni of Ife to ascend the throne after the late Royal Father’s demise in London after brief illness. Ogunwusi was named Ooni on October 26 and his ordination rites started since October 28.
