Prince Ogunwusi Becomes Ooni Today

Following the completion of pre-installation rites by the Ooni-elect, Prince Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, he will today (Monday) be installed the 51st Ooni of Ile-Ife, the cradle of Yoruba nation.

The Ooni-elect had been restricted to Ilofi since Friday, October 30, 2015 for further installation rites along with tutelage on his functions as an Ooni.

It was gathered that the coronation of Ogunwusi will not be done in the open but rather in Ile Oodua.

A source hinted that the new monarch will be entering the palace for the first time as an Oba today.

“In line with the demand of Ile Ife customs and traditions, his coronation will hold behind closed doors. Only the Isoros and Ife chiefs will be involved but I can confirm it will be done inside the palace.

In a chat with newsmen, former special adviser on Youth and Sports to Osun State governor, Mr. Biyi Odunlade, confirmed that the new Ooni will be crowned today inside Ile Oodua.
