The coronation of the new Ooni of Ife would hold on the 7th of December, 2015 and will have in attendance several a-list guests including Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth of England alongside President Buhari, VP Osinbajo and a number of Governors from nothing less than 20 different states who will convene together for the coronation of 2 Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi Ojaja II.
The Chairman, Media Committee of the coronation, Mr. Biyi Odunlade, said this at a press conference that started a series of activities lined up for the coronation scheduled to hold on December 7.
He said, “Let me acquaint you with what I have done in less than 70 days. I have given out over 20 electricity transformers worth about N250m.
“I donated 50 transformers when I was a prince. I will buy another 50 transformers within the next 30 days to further enhance electricity distribution. With this, small scale businesses of welders, tailors and others will naturally witness improvement.
“Providentially, I know the core investor and the Chairman, Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company, Mr. Tunde Ayeni, personally and very well. I have engaged him and his team to make this a reality and work has commenced in earnest. We will witness this transformation by the very special grace of God.”
“To revamp the stadium, I have already opened discussion with the Osun State Government on this. I will set up a football academy and we will have 16 clubs in Ife.”
The new monarch also promised to establish a football academy.
While the press conference was going on, the new Ooni and other guests were at an inter-religious service held at Enuwa Square.
