The Ooni of Ife, Adeyeye Ogunwusi, on Sunday continued his peace moves in Yorubaland with a visit to the Alake of Egbaland, Adedotun Gbadebo, and the Osile of Oke-Ona, Adedapo Tejuoso.
Mr. Ogunwusi, while speaking at the Alake’s palace, said Ife belongs to all Yorubas, saying he was just selected as a custodian of the land. He also called on all monarchs not to arrogate power unto themselves.
He said his visits to his colleagues in Egbaland was a great opportunity he would forever cherish.
“In my life I will continue to worship and praise God. Example of my praise is today’s visit, I will continue to worship God.
“God loves Yoruba more than the Hebrews. We Yoruba don’t appreciate ourselves. I plead with all of us to always appreciate God. If there is love in Yoruba land, it is then we start appreciating each other,” the monarch said.
Mr. Ogunwusi while describing love and peace as honey for any community, said he would continue to preach peace around Yoruba land. He called on other monarchs to join him in the crusade.
In his remark, the Alake applauded the peace moves of the Ooni. He said the Ooni of Ife remained the spiritual father of Yorubaland.
