December 18, 2015 – Ooni Of Ife Adeyeye Ogunwusi Reaffirms Commitment To God, Says He Crowned Him As The Custodian Of Oodua Race
“The attention of Ile Oodua has been drawn to a publication released on Wednesday, December 16, 2015 by an online medium, in which His Imperial Majesty, Ooni’risa and Arole Oodua, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi (Ojaja II), was criticised for bowing to God.
“God remains the highest, the King of kings who has kept all kings alive and has made it possible for me to be crowned as the king of the source of Yoruba civilisation.
“I have no regret whatsoever for kneeling down to exalt the Almighty God, who did not only create me, but also kept me alive, saw me through all the storms in my life journey and eventually crowned me as the custodian of the Oodua race.
“This act of equating me with the God of gods, of the King of kings and the sole owner of the universe is sacrilege planned to embarrass the throne. My emergence as Oba has been made possible only by the Almighty Olodumare, to whom I remain eternally grateful.”
