Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi Says He'll Continue To Accord Respect To Oba Rilwan Akiolu

The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has said he will not stop being respectful to the Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Akiolu, regardless of what may have happened at a social function they both attended recently. According to him, he wasn't bothered by Oba Akiolu’s action or inaction and still holds him in high esteem.
Adding that he is committed to ensuring unity among traditional rulers in the land. Oba Ogunwusi made this known through the Director of Media and Public Affairs, Ooni’s Palace on Wednesday. Oba Ogunwusi 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”
Read reaction on social media below;

 *His Imperial Majesty, e ma binu o. Agba ti o binu lomo re n po.

*You're pure in royalty and nobility. That's why they been envious.
You're young, yet deposited in you are fatherly responsibilities.
And, because your Royal Majesty is not a coronate like some of them, "E ti ju won lo". Kaabiyesi!!!

*No nonsense in Lagos. Never trade your principles. We support Oba of Lagos wholeheartedly. You don't need to join the joneses at all. Eleko acknowledged Ooni, he doesn't need to hug or shake hands, that is not part of our tradition. Ooni is doing well as our de facto tourism minister, kudos, but this controversy, Oba of Lagos is spot on.

*Eleko of Eko is a tout. Imaging an Oba wearing black eye glasses like hire assassin. What a small boy should and get corrected instantly. Feeling muddy toward an Oba like you publicly.

*Its not akinolu fault na if not asiwaju tomo eru bajoba eyan oni kukan am very sure he did not know his not even in number 20 rank in yoruba land even in lagos where is oba akran and oniketu nawaoo

*Onirisa should not mind the likes of Akiolu, anyway, I'm not surprised, what do you expect from someone like him, considering his antecedent, Oni of Ife is no match to any Oba in Yorubaland, it's pure envy!
