The Arole Oduduwa & Ooni of Ife, Ooni Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, Ojaja II has called for the unity of the Oodua descendants all over the world in solidarity with the Itsekiri people in the choice of the new Olu of Warri.

Speaking through his Director, Media & Public Affairs, Comrade Moses Olafare, the Ooni in his Easter message to the Nigerian Christians charging them to seek love and affection as demonstrated by Jesus Christ who sacrificed his life to save many souls, called on the Oodua people worldwide to find the lowest common factor that exists in their shared history, shared fear and shared aspirations.
