UNBELIEVABLE!!! Ooni Of Ife Gets Confused Turns To Obasanjo For Help, Find Out Why (FULL DETAILS)

The Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Ojaja II has sought for the intervention of the former president Chief Olusegun Obasanjo on youth empowerment saying that he remains a key factor in the nation development.

The apex Yoruba monarch also stated that the call had become necessary because the youth of the country, had no direction or clue of their future.

Ooni made the disclosure on Wednesday during his visit to Obasanjo at his Presidential Hilltop residence in Abeokuta, the Ogun state capital.

He said Nigeria youth required guidance from the respected elder statesman like Obasanjo and his likes in the society to lead them in the path of honour and giving a renewed hope for their future.

He said: “Sir, in all you do, do not forget the youth. The more we have such person like you, the better the Nigerian society would be. It is the youth that some of these bad politicians approached to cause confusion in the society, and we want to say enough is enough.

“They need someone to channel their energy into productive venture and someone like you who have seen Nigeria and who possess an incomparable experience is what they need to motivate them to become responsible elders.

“We have more youth who are trying to uplift our culture and they look up to you Baba. They are here with me, because when I told them that I am coming here they said it will be an opportunity for them to see you in person.”

Ooni, was full of praise and gratitude for the role the former president played in his emergence as the Ooni after the demise of Oba Okunade Sijuwade.

He said: “I remember that when I was still a Prince, it was this same sacred room that I knelt down before Baba and he laid his hands upon me and prayed for me in African way. And the result is what we are seeing today.

“So, for me, I cannot but get closer and closer to Baba. May he forever live long for us not only in Nigeria but to the world. I am happy to be here and I will continue to come. You are one of the foremost black men on the surface of the earth. We implore you that what we grew up to know about is preaching for the unity of this country and it is based on that we are following you so that the unity of this country is not negotiable.”

Obasanjo, while responding said he would love to come down to Ife to see the monarch, “but, when he insisted that he will like to come, who am I to turn down our Kabiyesi.”

He advised the monarch to remain focused, noting that, “you have started well and may God continue to be with you. In a nation of diverse ethnic group like Nigeria, we must see people whose action will bridge the gap of the diversity and forester unity.

“That is the role that is expected from traditional rulers like, your palace must opened to all and sundry irrespective of their political, social, religious background. While politicians are beating the drums of war and discord, traditional rulers must not join them, instead, you use your good offices to strengthen unity,”
