Different Reactions as Tinubu and Oniru Sat While Greeting Ooni of Ife at a Social Function.
Nigerians have reacted to a video circulating on social media showing how the former governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and new Oba of Iru Land, Wasiu Gbolahon Lawal, disrespected Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi Enitan.
Ooni of Ife arrived at the coronation of Oniru of Iru land on Sunday when the program has already kicked off, every other person on the high table stood up to greet him except Tinubu and Oniru.
Ooni of Ife even slightly bow for Tinubu.
Ooni of Ife is the number one king of Yoruba land and custodian of the Yoruba culture.
Many Nigerians have reacted to the action of Tinubu and Oba Oniru.
See their reactions below.
“The present Ooni has been disgracing & desecrating that stool if he respects himself 1000 of Tinubu can’t dare him. But Tinubu arrogant this day is becoming unbecoming”
“Rest in Peace sir Adimula the Late Sijuwade the most respected Oni of if he won’t even look at you or greet anyone he will just sit down everyone will go to him and portrait flat no matter who you are. RIP Sir Onirisa”
“Yoruba obas need to do better and restore respect to the royal institution. Saheed elegushi has no right to be seated while Ooni of Ife was making his way to the high table. Same as Asiwaju and the new one. It’s very wrong and disrespectful.”
“The Ooni should restore and jealously guard the dignity of the stool of his forefathers. It is not every event he should go to even if invited. I watched the video and was ashamed of seeing even the seat they gave to the Ooni. I wish someone can talk frankly to him.”
“Ọlọ́fin Àdìmúlà, Ọ̀ọnìrìṣà is not expected to bow to ANYONE. Ọọ̀ni is expected to be like any socialite. If Ọọ̀ni is in a gathering, he shouldn’t engage in chit-chat.”
What do you think about this? Is it right for Tinubu to sit down while greeting Ooni of Ife?
