Canada Invites Ooni Of Ife To It's 150th Independence Anniversary

The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has been invited as a special guest of the Canadian Government to grace the country’s 150th Independence Anniversary celebrations in July this year.

The special invitation was conveyed to the Ife monarch in his palace on Sunday by a Canadian Member of Parliament (MP), Ramesh Sangha.

Delivering the invitation, the Canadian MP said that the invitation was aimed at forging stronger ties between Canada and Nigeria.
Sangha, representing Brampton Central in the Canadian Parliament, said he would collaborate with Federal Government in the areas of economy, youth empowerment, health services, agriculture, science and technology while in Nigeria.

He described the Ife monarch as a “reference point in Nigeria in view of the enviable niche he has carved for himself since mounting the throne of his forebears.

“We Canadians are very happy with Your Highness for the great work you are doing.”

“On behalf of Canadian Prime Minister, Rt. Hon. Justin Pierre James Trudeau, we are inviting you to the 150th Independence Anniversary Celebration of Canada coming up in July,” said the Canadian MP.

Responding, Oba Ogunwusi said he would continue to promote Yoruba tradition and cultural heritage as well as propagate peace and unity across the world.

The Ife monarch said he would grace the occasion in Canada and also promised to contribute his quota to the success of the programme.

The Canadian delegation included John Adeyefa, President, Nigerian-Canadian Association in Ottawa, Chidi Nwanyanwu, President, Nigerian-Canadian Association in Ontario and Sola Agboola, Leader, Nigerian Young-Adult Association in Canada.

  10. Using his position very well. In this man's head, he is the president of the yourubas and I agree with him.

  11. Even the Oba of eko, Akiolu, was in court today! They challenge him as his not from the linage of the Kings.

  12. Oni going places and ruling high

    1. Yeah right. Ignorant people

  13. Some of these comments are so unnecessary. I appreciate that Canada is acknowledging the cultural components of Nigeria. Contrary to popular belief, the Ooni of Ife is coming with fresh eyes and an open minded perspective. I'm curious if the people criticizing have even met him or taken part in any of his initiatives. I'm also curious to see what they are doing for the people themselves. Perhaps we should start the practice of uplifting others versus pulling down.
