An international trade expert based in Poland and founder of Omooba Obaruwa Foundation, Prince Adekunle Ayoola has urged the highly successful Fuji musician, Alhaji Wasiu Ayinde to take seriously the task of uniting the Yoruba race as he is installed on Tuesday as the Olori Omooba of Ijebuland by the Awujale and Paramount ruler of Ijebuland, Oba Sikiru Kayode Adetona.
Ayoola particularly urged Wasiu Ayinde to help with brokering peace between the feuding two great sons of Ijebuland, former governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel currently representing Ogun East at the Senate as well as Gov Dapo Abiodun, maintaining that the continued political bickering between the two would add no value to concerted efforts to develop Ijebuland and Ogun State as a whole.
It would be recalled that for some time now there appears to have been a strained relationship between Gov Abiodun and Sen Gbenga Daniel and this had been largely adduced to politics
Speaking in a statement made available to our Correspondent on Monday, the international trade expert while congratulating KWAM1 as the Fuji musician is commonly called said “I sincerely salute you for being an achiever and for being given the rare privilege to succeed the doyen of the banking industry and founder of First City Monument Bank (FCMB) Late Otunba Subomi Balogun as the new Olori Omooba of Ijebuland.
“You are no doubt bringing varied experience on board as an highly successful international artiste and Mayegun of Yoruba Land. I therefore plead with you sir to use this new office to rally for unity of Yoruba race beginning from Ijebu land. The obvious bickering between Gov Abiodun and Sen Gbenga Daniel is a drawback for the Ijebuland and southwest, this is an era to place at front burner synergy, cooperation and matter of mutual benefit and nothing else
“I have no doubts in my mind that you are thoroughly prepared to add great value to your newly found role as the new Olori Omooba of Ijebuland and it is on this note that I sincerely wish you a memorable reign in sound health and prosperity”, the statement concluded.
