Ooni Disowns Statement Credited to the Palace, Restates Respect for Oba of Lagos

Read the statement below…
Ooni of Ife, His Imperial Majesty,
Ooni Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi (Ojaja
11) on Friday disowned a remark
credited to one Tunde Awoyemi who
claimed to be the palace Director of
tourism that the palace of Ooni
would invoke the wrath of ancestors
on Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Akiolu
if he fails to tender apology for
snubbing Arole of Oduduwa at a
public function recently.
Ooni Ogunwusi insisted he would continue
to hold Oba of Lagos in high esteem and
continually give him respect not only as one
of the foremost traditional rulers, but also
as an elderly Oba.
In a statement issued by Oba Ogunwusi’s
director of media and public affairs,
Comrade Moses Olafare, “the palace of Ooni
is using this medium to dissociate Ooni of
Ife from the statement credited to Mr Tunde
Awoyemi and we have said it repeatedly
that we have no official reaction to the issue
of Oba Akiolu”.
“Kabiyesi Ogunwusi is committed to his
peace and unity agenda, which he has
embarked on since he ascended the throne
of his forefathers. We refrain from reacting
officially, with a view to avoiding fanning
any ember of discord as Oba Akiolu remains​
respected monarch and the Ooni had
established a very robust and healthy
relationship with him before his installation
as Ooni of Ife”.
“While Ooni would continue to sustain the
relationship with Oba Akiolu, we want to
state categorically that the remark credited
to Tunde Awoyemi was not authorised by
Ooni and should be disregarded by all
Nigerians both at home and in diaspora”.
Signed;
Comrade Moses Olafare,
Director,
Media & Public Affairs,
Ooni’s Palace.
