Osun APC congratulates new Ooni of Ile Ife

27 October 2015, 17:56

Osogbo - The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun has congratulated the people of Ile Ife and the Yoruba nation in particular for the peaceful selection of a new Ooni of Ife.

Adeyeye Ogunwusi, the Ojaja II, would succeed the departed Ooni, Oba Okunade Sijuwade, who joined his ancestors.

‎This is contained in a statement by Mr Kunle Oyatomi, APC 's Director of Publicity, Research and Strategy, in Osogbo on Tuesday.

It stated that with the announcement of Ogunwusi as successor to Sijuwade, a new era had begun in the change paradigm currently sweeping across the country.

‎The statement stated that the corporate world, the Yoruba nation and indeed Nigeria as a whole expected the new Ooni to take off from where the late Sijuwade ended his glorious reign.

"We expect the Ooni-designate to drive the traditional institution with similar if not stronger zest and panache that Oba Sijuade deployed to promote culture, especially that of the Yoruba nation throughout the world,’’ it stated.

It stated that the choice of Ogunwusi must have been based on his pedigree and antecedent.

The statement, however, stated that it was with great expectation that the party look forward to the eventful reign of the new Ooni.
