Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, Ojaja II dropped a bombshell when His Royal Highness, Igwe Cyprian Mmaduabuchi Nevobasi, Ezeani III of Mmaku, Enugu State and other prominent Igbo leaders visited him recently.
He said; “We need to cement our togetherness in this country because without the coming together of the Igbo and the Yoruba natives, it will be very difficult for Nigeria and the entire continent of Africa to progress.”
“We are the real embodiment of the black people and the continent of Africa is looking forward to us. Handshake across the Niger like this is very important because we belong to the same family, so we should not separate ourselves the more.”
“Let us look into things that bind us together like our rich cultures and traditions. We want to tell you today that we are now directly associating from the Kingdom of Ife to the entire Mmakun Kingdom in Igboland and Your Royal Highness have cemented that good relationship with this visit.”
“Once again, I appreciate your philanthropic and leadership works especially towards the poor, oppressed and the downtrodden in Enugu and beyond, since you ascended the throne of your forebears some 20 years ago. I am proud to associate with you after hearing so much about you and I am so happy that we eventually met.”
