Ooni Of Ife: APC And PDP Are Same

Ooni of Ife Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi has cautioned Nigerians against believing politicians, saying the ruling-All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are birds of a feather.

The monarch made this known at his Ile-Oodua palace, Ile-Ife, before heading into seven days of seclusion to commune with the gods ahead of the Olojo Festival.

Speaking to his audience at the palace, Ogunwusi said politicians in the country all cross carpet from one major political party to another in order to only protect their interests and not that of members of the public.

While pledging to pray for his ancestors to renew the minds of Nigerian political elites, Ooni of Ife challenged them to commit themselves genuinely to the offices they occupy.

In Ooni of Ife’s words, “We believe in the forces of nature for nature to conspire in our favour but every other thing in our country they are all man-made, the likes of security, our politicians will take credit for that, they are the ones that caused it till date. I will go again to seclusion for God to touch their heart for them to stop playing all of us like ludo.

“They should be more sensitive about people because it is one political party. They are just crisscrossing from one political party to the other in order to retain their positions. We have one political party in this country, same value, same character, same politician. But I am going to go into seclusion for God to touch their hearts for them to stop playing games with the lives of citizens of this country. It is about time for them to realize that they should serve us genuinely because we can not continue like this.

“This time around is a serious one, it is a request on behalf of the entire people, Yoruba race and by extension our dear Country Nigeria. I am going for God to touch their heart and really pray to my ancestors. We are just deceiving ourselves that they are different,  they are the same. All of them have crossed to the major party but Nigeria is above them all.

“This time around it is a very sensitive one and a very serious one. First of all, to thank God almighty and the spirit of our ancestors that have been guiding us thus far, God has really helped us with the pandemic issue because we won’t be able to handle it when we compare things we have been doing with other nations. We have every course to be thankful to God. 

“They said we are spiritual and it is working for us in this country, we have a course to thank God Almighty, that it is not out of hands.  We shouldn’t rest our hoax, I am going to seclusion which is the 6th. I inherited the tradition from my ancestors thousands of years ago.”

My Visit To Tinubu Has Nothing To With 2023 Presidential Race -Akeredolu

The Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu, has said his visit to a former Lagos State Governor and National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has nothing to do with the 2023 presidential race.

He said he was in London to see Tinubu and he was sure that the rumours flying around on social media was not true.

The governor gave the explanation on his London trip while speaking on a monitored Arise TV programme, on Sunday, September 19, 2021.

Akeredolu, who described the former Lagos State Governor as the ‘capon’ in the South, said he (Tinubu ) was expected to return to the country soon, so as to meet with him and be able to take certain critical decisions.

Asked if he will support Tinubu as the presidential candidate of the party in 2023, Akeredolu said, “APC is a party. APC will decide who the candidate will be. I have said it several times. I’m going no where. If I leave APC, I am going back to my chamber. For me, whatever APC decides, I will follow.

“We went to London because it was important for us to go and see for ourselves. How he’s doing. He’s the capon for us here. But the time he comes, we can make some serious decisions.”
