Ooni begs Nigerians to support Tinubu’s government

The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, has pleaded with Nigerians to persevere with President Bola Tinubu’s government because of the current economic situation.

On Monday, the Ife ruler appealed to Nigerians during his visitation to his family compound as the grand finale of the Olojo Annual Festival in the Oketase area, Ile-Ife.

He admitted that Nigeria is currently at its trial period when the citizens face many challenges in all ramifications of life.

“I know that people are passing through difficult periods in which they are not finding life easy, and truly, this is a challenging period. But I know that after this festival, normalcy will return to the country, as the problems we’re facing will soon come to an end,” said the Ooni.

He admonished all and sundry to endure more and ensure their support for their leaders, saying by doing this, there would be great achievements.

“We are almost getting there, for gold has to pass through fire before becoming shining. Government alone cannot do it without the cooperation of the masses,” Mr Ogunwusi explained. “Therefore, let all hands be on deck, for a tree cannot make a forest, neither any nation can get to his promised land without the contribution of the generality.”
