Coronation of the new Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi will be taking place on Monday 7th of December. It's been reported that her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth of England, Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, at least 20 Governors and other dignitaries from all over the world will be attending the event.
Talking about his achievement within the few days on throne and his plans for his town, the monarch said:
“Let me acquaint you with what I have done in less than 70 days. I have given out over 20 electricity transformers worth about N250m.
I donated 50 transformers when I was a prince. I will buy another 50 transformers within the next 30 days to further enhance electricity distribution. With this, small scale businesses of welders, tailors and others will naturally witness improvement.
Providentially, I know the core investor and the Chairman, Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company, Mr. Tunde Ayeni, personally and very well. I have engaged him and his team to make this a reality and work has commenced in earnest. We will witness this transformation by the very special grace of God.
To revamp the stadium, I have already opened discussion with the Osun State Government on this. I will set up a football academy and we will have 16 clubs in Ife.”
