Oyo invasion: Those agitating for Yoruba Nation are Attention Seekers-. Ooni

The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, yesterday, urged Nigerians to ignore the Yoruba nation agitators, describing them as attention seekers.

He also insisted that the agitators do not represent the interest of the Yoruba race.

Speaking when he received in audience members of the Yoruba Council Worldwide, who paid him a courtesy visit in Lagos to inform him of the sixth annual Omoluwabi festival, the monarch commended the president of Yoruba Council Aare Oladotun Hassan for promoting Yoruba culture and extolling the good virtues Yoruba are known for.

The festival will be held on April 27- 28, 2024, in Ile Ife and the grand finale will be held in Lagos at LTV 8 Blue Roof on May 1, 2024.

Oba Ogunwusi said: “We should not give those people relevance, they are achieving their aims just to seek attention, we are having challenges here and there in the country, and this administration is trying her best.

“Under President Bola Tinubu, he is doing very well, he is doing exceptionally well, by trying to fix the economy, we should give him the benefit of the doubt and also to engage people, very important we should be engaging people to talk to others about success recorded by the government in power.

“For us, we will continue to uphold and support the government, to support the president to ensure everything he does is to our advantage not as a race, but to our advantage as a nation, irrespective of where you come from Yoruba land or anywhere.”

In his remarks, Mr Hassan said the essence is to rekindle the fast-dying Yoruba morals and values and as well as inculcate it into the youths.
