The occasion will be hosted by the Governor of Oyo state, Engineer Seyi Makinde.

Commenting on this development, the Coordinator of Yoruba World Centre, Ogbeni Alao Adedayo, says in Yoruba language, “A fẹẹ fi oko kan pa ẹyẹ meji ni!” (We want to kill two birds with a stone). According to him, “Our earlier plan was to celebrate the new Olubadan among our traditional rulers and other leaders, and we had thus invited both the Vice President and Asiwaju Tinubu. But we later realised that these two foremost political and government leaders from our own side here had just come out of a competition which generated lots of misunderstandings among our people, so we intensified efforts to ensure their presence for rapprochement, and we are glad to say they shall be with us on that day.

“We are not inviting them for politics, therefore, no politics will be allowed on the occasion. It is for them and other respected personalities to come and relax, enjoy the arts and culture of their own people, look at ways to make this culture become a tool for national unity, beneficial co-existence, youth development and empowerment. You won’t believe how glad we were when signals came that the two are coming to celebrate with the new Olubadan and the Yoruba people.” Adedayo concluded.
