Ooni of Ife Blasts Yoruba Nation Agitators, Calls Them “Attention Seekers”

Lucky Obukohwo Reporting


The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has blasted the Yoruba nation agitators for invading the Oyo State government secretariat and House of Assembly in the name of having their own nation, saying that they are just mere attention seekers.

Ooni Ogunwusi, while receiving in audience members of the Yoruba Council Worldwide, insisted that the agitators do not represent the interest of the Yoruba race.

During the courtesy visit by the group in Lagos to inform him of the sixth annual Omoluwabi festival, Ooni urged Nigerians to ignore the Yoruba nation agitators, describing them as attention seekers.

The monarch, however, commended the president of Yoruba Council Aare Oladotun Hassan for promoting Yoruba culture and extolling the good virtues Yorubas are known for.

The Omoluwabi festival will be held on April 27- 28, 2024, in Ile Ife and the grand finale will be held in Lagos at LTV 8 Blue Roof on May 1, 2024.

“We should not give those people relevance, they are achieving their aims just to seek attention, we are having challenges here and there in the country, and this administration is trying her best.

“Under President Bola Tinubu, he is doing very well, he is doing exceptionally well, by trying to fix the economy, we should give him the benefit of the doubt and also to engage people, very important we should be engaging people to talk to others about success recorded by the government in power.

“For us, we will continue to uphold and support the government, to support the president to ensure everything he does is to our advantage not as a race, but to our advantage as a nation, irrespective of where you come from Yoruba land or anywhere”, Oba Ogunwusi said.

In his remarks, Mr. Oladotun Hassan said the essence is to rekindle the fast-dying Yoruba morals and values and as well as inculcate it into the youths.

Recall that some armed men invaded the Oyo State Secretariat and House of Assembly and hoisted their flag at the assembly before they were overpowered by the military some days ago.
