Without peace and unity among the Yoruba people, there won’t be room for development. That’s credited to the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi.
He made the remark while addressing newsmen at the grand finale of the annual Olojo Festival on Monday evening in Ile-Ife.
He pledged to continue to work for the unity of the ethnic group, adding that the only way to progress in life was to pursue love while promoting unity.
“Without peace and unity, there cannot be any development or achievement.
“United we stand, divided we fall. I urge peace and unity among the Yoruba.” he said.
On their potentials
The Ooni advised his tribe to cherish its potentialities.
”This will enable us to achieve greatly in life, thus taking us to the Promised Land,’’
He acknowledged the support he had been receiving from various parts of the country, especially from the Yoruba.
The traditional ruler promised to modernise the festival in order to boost tourism and strengthen the community’s economy.
