Sheathe your swords, support President-elect, Ooni tells Nigerians

The 51st and current Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has called on all Nigerians, across socio-religious affiliation, to support the administration of President-elect, Bola Tinubu.

The monarch said this in Lagos while hosting a delegation from Kenyan President, William Ruto at his Lagos residence.

Present at the event were Francis Koskie, Kenya’s chief of staff; Aliko Dangote, chairman of Dangote Group; Harry Ebohen, CEO of Propetrol; Dapo Abiodun, Governor of Ogun state; and Kunmi Demuren, a fintech executive.

The Yoruba first-class monarch appealed to the supporters of former vice president Atiku Abubaker and one-time Anambra governor Peter Obi to support the incoming administration in the overall interest of the country.

Atiku and Obi were candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Labour Party (LP) respectively in the February 25 presidential poll.

Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi stressed that putting Nigeria on the right path to greatness should be a collective effort as the election has come and gone.

The first-class Yoruba traditional ruler said: “As the presidential inauguration approaches, I beseech you all, young and old, Obidients and Atikulates, hopeful and weary, amiable and passionate, to lay down your arms.

“There is no reason to waste time looking back; all we have is today and the future. Now is the time to embrace our diversity and uniqueness.

“We may differ in opinions and approaches to achieving a better Nigeria, but we all want a nation we can be proud of. Let us come together to support the vision of Asiwaju Gbogbo Ile Oodua.”
