The Awujale and Paramount ruler of Ijebuland, Oba (Dr.) Sikiru Kayode Adetona has advised the new Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi to be wary of praise singers who may want to be loitering around him for favour.
The monarch disclosed that the Yoruba unity, which the new monarch is seeking, could be achieved if he desists from listening t sycophants.
He stated this on Friday when the Ooni paid an historic visit to him at his palace in Ijebu Ode.
Awujale alongside all the traditional rulers in Ijebuland, numbering over 50 were in attendance to give the monarch a royal welcome to the headquarters of Ijebuland.
Oba Ogunwusi, who arrived the Awujale palace at exactly 1:00pm, was accompanied by many High Chiefs and traditional rulers from the ancient town.
In his address, Awujale, who expressed happiness about the visit, recalled that there had been unity among Yoruba monarchs in the past, praying that the good days will be back.
According to him, “the first conference of Yoruba monarchs was held in 1937 at Oyo, Oyo state and the next one was here in Ijebu Ode, that was 1941. Alaafin did not attend the meeting then. Ijebu played a very prominent role in the affairs of Yoruba.
