Founder and President of the Oodua People’s Congress (OPC) Dr. Frederick Fasehun has sent a congratulatory message to the Giesi Ruling House and the people of Ile-Ife on theappointment of Prince Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi as the Ooni.
Fasehun, who holds the Ataalase Oodua title in Ile-Ife, promised that OPC would support the Ooni, assuring of his and the organisation’s support.
In a statement in Lagos, Fasehun said the rancour-free selection of the monarch, from the many eligible aspirants, showed that the Yoruba were a great people who cherished their cultural heritage.
“Ten successor kings would usher in 10 different eras, but Ooni Ogunwusi must bring himself to build on the solid foundation of peace, dignity and development that his predecessors laid for Oodua sons and daughters.
“Ooni Ogunwusi is taking the throne at a challenging period in Nigeria’s socio-economic life and he must lend his voice and his experience as a humane philanthropist and a successful entrepreneur to push for the development of Nigeria and the welfare of our people,” Fasehun said.
