Feb 5, 2016 – Pictures: Olusegun Obasanjo Prostrates For Ooni Of Ife; Drama As Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi Try To Stop OBJ At Palace In Enuwa Ile Ife

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo paid a courtesy visit to the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi at his palace today in Enuwa Ile Ife.

The elder statesman surprised Ogunwusi’s aides after he suddenly went down to honour him.

They tried to stop 82-year-old Obansanjo from prostrating for the 41-year-old monarch but before they could attempt it, Baba had prostrated.

It is not a coincidence that Obasanjo prostrated for the Ooni of Ife a day after his aides were beaten up by Ijeshaland monarch in Osogbo.

Choi! Obasanjo too like drama….

    This is not a drama, if we don’t respect our culture then it means we don’t have one. If you want to greet the Queen of England you knee or bow down. So that is the culture and is not about personalities or Age. Obasanjo knows is a taboo to disrespect Oba not only Ooni.

    This is not a drama but a tradition,the traditions & culture of yoruba-land, baba Obj prosrated not for the young man but for monarch, & the title of the King. Oba ba lori ohun gbogbo.

    Thank you Ajidara 1 and Ola for your true comments. OBJ will never prostrate for anyone in the entire Yoruba land and Nigeria as a whole. Even though I’m not a fan of Baba Iyabo, OBJ action is to show honor and respect for Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi tranditional authority. This is why is laughable and unbelievable to see any king in OSUN state in a supremacy fight with Oni of Ife. OBJ did the right thing in the palace today, and every other kings in Yoruba should learn to give honor to this king because of what he represents and not his age. I want to believe that Baba Iyabo is trying to respect the Yoruba culture and the Oni authority among all other Yoruba kings, most importantly, Baba Obasanjo is indirectly warning the Owa of Obokun of Ilesha to stop any power tussle with the most respected king according to Yoruba history and tradition. On this one, Baba Iyabo acted well.

    Obansanjo ;certsinly does have his own downsides-but who doesn’t?.
    Naijagist pls I beg to differ,this incident is NOT just drama, but a very HISTORICAL DAY! in the history of the Yorubas.

    The Yoruba culture is characterised with respect….hence the reason OBANSANJO was merely leading by example.Its NOT about the age of the Ooni Of Ife but the Throne in which he sits on….hence the reason OBJ,postrated for the Ooni of Ife…..for this singular act I commend him(Obansanjo) …but will I will to criticise him for his past corrupt records.
    OBJ, well done sir!!!!!

    Did u now expect baba obj to shake hands with ooni.4 those who doesn’t know anythine,u’ve to postrate for d crown irrespective of age.even if it is ooni’s mother she has to postrate 1st 4 d king,then later when dey get to room,the king wil then postrate for his mother.d bible also says u should honour ur leader.baba obj didn’t postrate 4 d young man but 4 d crown which is ooni.our problem nowadays is dat we have neglected tradition all in d name of civilization and dat’s y there problem nowadays.
