Ganiyu Adams, the national coordinator of the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC) has said the death of Ooni of Ife, Oba Okunade Sijuade, the Olubuse II, is an irreparable loss which he described as the “biggest Elephant transited to the vault”.
Adams made the remark while reacting to the announcement of demise of the monarch.
According to him, the Olubuse II has completed his mission as assigned to him by Almighty God.
“He has gloriously relocated to the ancestral abode of his progenitors, to feed them back after the completion of his assigned role as the protector of the ancestral stool of the Yoruba.
“Ooni Olubuse has gone to eternally dine and wine with his ancestors and to give the feedback to those who sent him to tender their stead.
“The biggest Elephant has transited to the vault.
He said it was sad but not tragic that he returned home at 85.
He said the late monarch was able, not only to sustain the royal majestic and reverence left behind by his predecessors, but also “added colour, panache and cultivated tremendous respect to the stool of Ooni of Ife, the cradle of the world”.
Adams commiserated with the Olubuse Royal family, the seven Elus in Ife, all the chiefs and Yoruba citizens both home and in the Diaspora,

“He has gone with his aura. There is no way another Olubuse II can be created or superimposed.” …Read More
