Preparatory to the grand finale of the 2016 Olojo Festival, the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi has moved into “Iledi”, a seclusion where he will spend five days to pray for peace and progress of Yorubas, Nigeria and the entire black race.
Olojo festival is a major annual event in Ile Ife, meant to celebrate creation of universe and the week long event will climax with wearing of a special beaded crown worn once annually by Ooni and the symbolic walk from Ile Oodua, Ooni’s palace to Oke Mogun.
Few hours to his seclusion, Ooni Ogunwusi unveiled a symbolic beaded crown which was just erected at the Enuwa roundabouts.
The monarch described the unveiling of the beaded crown as significant in that it goes to appreciate the rich culture and tradition of Yoruba nation.
He reminds Nigerians of the need to seek peace and ensure they coexist in peace wherever they find themselves just as they should continue to pray for the country and her leadership at all levels.
