I Will Continue To Respect The Oba of Lagos - Ooni of Ife

Foremost traditional ruler in Yorubaland , the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has said he will not stop to accord Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Akiolu, respect despite snubbing him at a social function on Tuesday.

The Ooni said he was not perturbed by Akiolu’s action, as he is committed to ensuring unity among traditional rulers in the land.

Speaking to Punch correspondent through the Director Media and Public Affairs, Ooni’s Palace on Wednesday, the Ooni said: “Nobody should castigate anybody” for doing what he did because
of the position he holds and because of his age… Ooni would not stop to accord 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 the 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.”
