Oba Aromolaran, who said he came to the Ooni for the first time, stated that his visit was to invite Oba Ogunwusi to his 80th birthday coming up in October.
While referring to Oba Ogunwusi as an uncommonly revered monarch, who all true sons and daughters of Yoruba extraction should hold in high esteem and support, Oba Aromolaran stated that Ile-Ife remained the ancentral home of the Ijesa people and the entire Yoruba race.
He said, “I am so happy to pay the Oonirisa a visit for the first time since he mounted this sacred throne of our father, Oduduwa. I see Your Majesty as God’s chosen for this generation because your message of ‘peace and unity” that you preach around the world is what is needed at this time in Yorubaland.
“I’m here to personally invite the Arole Oodua to my 80th birthday coming up in October.
“This is the first time I would be celebrating my birthday on earth; and I see that I cannot do such without informing the Ooni of Ife and the entire people of Ile-Ife who are my direct siblings because this place is the ancestral home of all the Ijesa people and Yoruba as a whole.”
Ooni Ogunwusi expressed gratitude to God for sparing the life of Oba Aromolaran while assuring him and his people of his support and physical presence at the ceremony.
He said, “Kabiyesi, you will recall that I have visited you twice at your palace in Ilesa since I was enthroned as the Ooni of Ife less than two years ago. Thank you so much for this honour, this place undoubtedly belongs to you and all other descendants of Oduduwa as we, Ife people, are just the ones keeping the home for everyone.” RECEIVE NEWS UPDATE ON: WHATSAPP +234 701 056 0394, AND TWITTER: @247NGNEWSUPDATE, EMAIL: INFO@247NIGERIANEWSUPDATE.CO FOR INSTANT UPDATES ON INSTAGRAM CLICK HERE Share your story with us: email@example.com PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW:>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
