A former President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo, on Friday visited traditional chiefs and King makers in Ife and advised that the choice of a new Traditional head to fill the vacant stool of the Ooni of Ife must be done without bias.
Obasanjo was on a condolence visit to the people of Ile-Ife on the passage of the Ooni of Ife, Oba Okunade Sijuwade Olubuse.
He said that the void created by the Ooni’s demise could only be filled with the right and credible choice, which must be done accurately.
Speaking to reporters, the former President emphasised the significance of the stool of the Ooni to the existence and development of the entire Yoruba race.
He extolled the virtues of the late Oba Okunade Sijuwade, saying he was a lover of peace and unity who lifted the Yoruba culture beyond the shores of Nigeria.
