By; Bayo Akamo, Ibadan
The ancient city of Ile Ife in Osun State has been thrown into wild jubilation following the announcement of the new Ooni, Prince Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi this morning.
The 40 year old Prince Adeyeye Ogunwusi is from Agbedegbede axis of the Giesi ruling House in the ancient city.
As early as 6 a.m, hundreds of youth, aged women particularly from the Giesi Ruling House trooped out on the street celebrating the announcement of the new Ooni.
It was gathered that by 8am when the Osun State Radio Station (OSBC) relayed the appointment of the new Ooni, more people including market men and women took the celebration a notch higher in various markets with some closing shops and taking to the street with songs and dances.
Jubilating youths and the market women while dancing round some of the ancient compounds in the city, were chant the praise of the new Ooni as well as the Kingmakers for “a job well done”.
New Nigerian gathered that the selected Prince has moved into a confinement known as Ilofi for the performance of traditional rites preparatory to his official installation and presentation of staff of office by Governor Rauf Aregbesola.
Speaking with New Nigerian through phone, a youth leader, Prince Adetunmbi Adetunji said the appointment of a youth as the new Ooni will go a long way in sustaining the reigning peace and stability of the ancient city.
Prince Adetunji pointed out that with a new Ooni in place, administrative activities are expected to pick up in the city, as things are expected to take proper and normal shape.
It will be recalled that Osun State Government in a letter signed by the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Alhaji Moshood Adeoti dated October 24, 2015, named Prince Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi as the new Ooni of Ife.
