National Coordinator, Oodua Peoples’ Congress (OPC) and worldwide convener, Oodua Progressive Union (OPU), Otunba Gani Adams, has congratulated the new Ooni of Ife, His Imperial Majesty, Oba Enitan Ogunwusi, for ascending the throne of the cradle of Yorubaland peacefully and legally.
Adams described the appointment as the divine anointment of another enigmatic Oba whose reign will enhance the glory of Yoruba race.
Adams, in a statement on Wednesday, congratulated the Ooni “for ascending the throne of Oduduwa at the time apportioned by the ancestral founders of Yoruba race when his aura will not only rub off on the ancient city of Ife , the Yoruba race in particular and the Yoruba people in Diaspora but will shine to all corners of the world where Yoruba culture flourishes and blossom”.
Adams pointed out that “It gladden the hearts and please the owners of the four walls of the Earth that the Ife kingmakers have done it the way it was supposed to be done and that is why things will be how it ought to be throughout the reign of Ooni Enitan Ogunwusi.
“The appointment of Ooni Enitan Ogunwusi and the popular acceptance it received by the people of Ife and Yoruba race showcased the import of applying traditional processes when it is proper, apt and necessary ,”
Adams called on the new Oonirisa not only to build and sustain the traditional structures and networking which his forefathers built and opened but to embark on cultural irredentism of the Yoruba values and pristine heritage which is under heavy threat of foreign influences”.
He commended the people of Ife for “the popular acceptance of the appointment of the Ooni and putting a shame on those outsiders or intruders who have been expecting a worse situation when the announcement was made “
Adams congratulated the Governor of the State of Osun , Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, for displaying native intelligence and cultural sagacity in relation to the death, burial of the late Ooni Okunade Sijuwade and to the emergence and appointment of Ooni Enitan Ogunwusi “
