Ooni Of Ife Speaks On Oba Of Lagos' Action: I will continue to show him respect

The humble and amiable Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has said he will not stop according Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Akiolu, respect despite snubbing him at a social function.

The foremost traditional ruler in Yorubaland said he was not perturbed by Akiolu’s action. He said he is committed to ensuring unity among traditional rulers in the land.

Oba Ogunwusi spoke to Punch through the Director Media and Public Affairs of Ooni’s Palace on Wednesday. The respected monarch said;
“Nobody should castigate anybody” for doing what he did on Tuesday because of the position he holds and because of his age… Ooni would not stop according his colleagues and every category of people the respect they deserve. 
“The Ooni of Ife is not ready to make any official statement over what happened between him and Oba of Lagos. He still holds Oba Akiolu in high esteem and what happened yesterday will not stop the Ooni from holding him in high esteem.”
