The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has assured Nigerians that the lost glory of Ile-Ife and Nigeria would be restored.

The monarch gave the assurance at the grand finale of the Olojo festival when he visited the royal compound, Agbedegbede, and some other notable areas on Monday in Ile-Ife.

He said the Olojo festival was a unique festival that brought light and comfort to the people of the source, Osun, Nigeria and the entire continent after the celebration.

“Whenever we celebrate Olojo festival, all the prayers offered are speedily answered, for the Aare Crown that comes out once a year is a symbol of peace and harmony,” Mr Ogunwusi stated. “And it’s a point of contact to God Almighty towards resolving all issues in Nigeria, as the country gears up for next general elections in 2023.”

According to him, this year’s festival will end the lingering strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), which has paralysed academic activities in many universities.
