Ooni Of Ife Has Failed The Yoruba People - Yoruba Activist Sunday Igboho.

Famous Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Igboho, said that the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, had disappointed the people of Yoruba.

According to him, when he visited President Muhammadu Buhari, the Ooni had made a mistake and failed to address issues concerning the Southwest Ravaging Killer Fulani Herdsmen with him.

The activist said this on Wednesday morning at a virtual Town Hall with Yoruba in the Diaspora, Punch reports.

Igboho said,

“The monarchs are now afraid but we must keep praying for them to be united with one voice. They should not be afraid of arrest at their age. Some of them don’t even grant audience at their palaces any longer. So, everything is now in God’s hands.

“When Ooni met with Buhari over the herdsmen issue, Ooni should have told Buhari the truth but he did not. When Ooni returned, he started tackling me to leave the remaining task to the government to finish. You can imagine that kind of talk?

“Alaafin of Oyo has asked me to meet him over the matter. Alaafin should have been the one invited to meet Buhari but since the Ooni was invited, he should be bold to tell the President the whole truth and make the demands of the Yoruba people known to the President.

“The Ooni disappointed himself. Some politicians are behind Ooni’s latest move. He invited me to his palace but I refused to go. I would have gone if he had represented us well but he did not. I won’t honour any monarch who does not cooperate with me. Enough is enough, the Fulani have done enough.”
