"Osun Worshippers Are Not Idol Worshippers, It's Unfair To Call Us One - Ooni Of Ife.

The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi has noted that addressing Osun worshippers as worshippers of idols is not fair.


He stated this when hosting devotees of Osun in his palace as the ancient city on Sunday, July 26 observed the Osun festival.


The monarch likewise mentioned that the pandemic still ravages the country and advised Nigerians to follow the preventive steps outlined and avoid the spread of false information.

“Unlike the way we used to have it in Ife, we were forced to restrict this celebration which is a major festival in Ife.

“Our restriction made us to ensure that we don’t create more problems while trying to solve the one at hand. Osun festival as the world knows is the celebration of water and we all know that water is life.

“We’re using this instance to reconnect with our creator through nature to cleanse the world, and especially to end the pandemic. We are remembering our ancestors and it is unfair to call us idol worshipers." Ooni of Ife said.
