The Ooni of Ife, Ooni Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, Ojaja II has vowed to name his unborn prince after the late Sir Adesoji Tadenikawo Aderemi, who was the 49th Ooni of Ife during his lifetime as a mark of appreciation to Aderemi for his good works.
Ooni Ogunwusi made the promise on Friday, while speaking at the 40 years remembrance programme organized by the late Aderemi’s princes, princesses and grandchildren to remember the Ooni who reigned between 1930 to 1980.
At the event which held at his Ile Oduduwa palace, Ooni Ogunwusi described his predecessor as a great icon who will forever be remembered for his immeasurable contributions to the independence, stabilization and growth of Nigeria.
“I wish to implore our politicians across the country to look deep into the life, time and accomplishments of Sir Aderemi and learn great lessons of servant leadership. He was selflessly committed to the development of the country.
“Among several tangible virtues to be emulated from the good life of Sir Aderemi is the good name he left behind which still speaks volume till date. Houses, cars and other material gains of life will surely fade away while one’s name remains in the book of history forever.
This is coming months after tongues wagged that his queen, Oloori Silekunola Naomi is pregnant and has moved out of the palace for proper care at her mum’s place.
Though the queen revealed in a social media post that she had pressing issues to attend to and not posting on social media, many wondered what was happening to the royal couple since their marriage has not produced a child.
