THE PULSE wrote: The December 7, 2015 coronation ceremony of Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi Ojaja II, will have the Queen of England-Elizabeth Alexandra, President Buhari and others in attendance.

The Ooni of Ife promised to improve the lives of his subjects, adding that his policies will make every Yoruba person proud of his heritage.

Speaking through his elder brother, Prince Adegboyega Ogunwusi, the Ooni 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.”

The representative of the Ooni told newsmen that invitations have been sent to top dignitaries all over the world, adding that the Queen of England might be represented in the ceremony.

The Ooni also said “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.”

Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi is a Real estate tycoon, and the 51st Ooni of Ife.
