Alaafin an iconic monarch, has created emptiness

The Ooni of Ife, Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, has described the passage of the Alaafin of Oyo, Lamidi Adeyemi III, as a loss for the entire Oduduwa race worldwide. This is stated in a statement from its Director of Media and Public Affairs, Moses Olafare, made available to journalists on Saturday. Mr. Ogunwusi, who is also the Natural Chief of the Oduduwa (Yoruba) race throughout the world, stated that the late Alaafin was a worthy old man whose entire life was dedicated to promoting the prestigious Yoruba culture and advancing the humanity. “We have lost a great icon, a great monarch, who saw Oyo through civilization and modern development without discarding the cultural sanctity of the throne first occupied by Alaafin Oranmiyan the Great. “Ile Oodua Palace and Ooni had an excellent working relationship with the late Alaafin who gave his best to resolve major conflicts in Yoruba land and unite all the sons and daughters of Oduduwa globally, among other historic achievements. . “The late Alaafin is one of the privileged elders who contributed to the growth of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, and also saw the country through military and democratic eras with unquantifiable positive contributions,” he said. ‘last encounter’ Mr. Ogunwusi recalled his last meeting with the late Royal Father Oyo early last month when the two held a peace and reconciliation meeting with some senior politicians of Yoruba origin in Ibadan. According to him, the Alaafin has promised to make his first visit to the Ooni before the middle of the year. The Ooni prayed for the soul of the late Alaafin, as well as for the family, that they would have the strength to endure his death. He also prayed that Oyo would be spiritually guided to complete Royal Father’s burial according to the culture and traditions of his ancestors. “While the death of Oba Adeyemi would be greatly missed for his indelible mark as a great descendant of Oduduwa, Ooni urges the entire House of Oduduwa around the world to continue to pray for the family of the deceased and the Oyo Indians at this difficult time. . “May the Almighty Olodumare also be with the Oyomesi at this critical moment that may challenge the culture and traditions of their ancestors in the process of funeral rites and the selection process of the next Alaafin. “Alaafin’s position is too culturally important to be handled in a way that undermines our collective traditions and culture. “God will stand firm with the Oyomesi and the entire Oyo kingdom,” the statement said.
