Islands - Mike Oldfield - Islands controversial monarch, Oluwo of Iwo land in Osun state,Oba Abdulrasheed Adewale Akanbi was at its best last Saturday during the third memorial lecture organised to resonate the sweet memories of the legendary, late imperial majesty,Oba Okunade Sijuwade,the immediate past Ooni of Ife.
Ooni of Ife, Oba Sijuwade Okunade. The annual lecture series was organised by Chief Dr Rahmon Adegoke Adedoyin,the Maye of Yoruba land and the Chancellor of Oduduwa University, Ipetumodu,Ileife in recognition of the exemplary life and times of the late monarch.
The hall, venue of the ceremony in, Oduduwa university, Ipetumodu, IleIfe, was full to the brim with eminent Nigerians from Attack Of The Mad Axeman - The Michael Schenker Group - The Collection and near, including traditional rulers, students and staff of the university, and the children of the late Ooni of Ife,and their.
In an electrifying manner, the monarch charged the seated Nelson Ombori - Oches. D.O.7 Shirati Jazz* - Nelson Ombori / Juma Sammy Adetokunbo Sijuwade the symbol of the Sijuwade dynasty to strive hard to ensure that he lived a far better life than his late father, The Ooni of Ife Oba Okunade Sijuwade who died three years ago, otherwise the late monarch would be largely seen to have lived an unfulfilled life.
Oba Akanbi said this became necessary because the glory of any surviving child of a father is to ensure that he surpass the late father in all ramifications, a clear indication that the late father lived a fulfilled life and left a worthy legacy behind. He also challenged all traditional ruler in Yoruba land to show him any idol that Oduduwa handed over to them, saying that if there was any, he would remove his crown and leave his palace.
The monarch also commended the organiser of the annual lecture, for his commitment to that ideal, saying that not all human beings have such sense of appreciation, particularly when the benefactor is no more. Dr Rahmon Adegoke Adedoyin, The Maye of Yorubaland and others in their testimonies gave destiny changing encounters they had with the late monarch while he was alive. While Dr Adedoyin has been consistent about the annual memorial lecture in honour of late Oba Okunade Sijuwade, obviously for the unquantifiable love the late monarch showered on him while was alive, Oba Sijuwade was about the only late Ooni of Ife who has been so honoured, unlike his predecessors.
Chief Adedoyin recounted clearly, how the late monarch in no small measure helped in the final approval of the university, and the hectares of land he dashed him,on which the prestigious institution is sitting today. The educationist cum business mogul also noted that he would be eternally grateful to the late monarch for treating him like his own child and the special love he had for him.
I copied that from him,and also his business and leadership strategies. Relieving his maiden meeting with Oba Okunade who he recalled spent thirty years of splendor and glamour on the throne,the university don said he was shocked when he gave him a large sum Nelson Ombori - Oches. D.O.7 Shirati Jazz* - Nelson Ombori / Juma Sammy money,he Sweet Bitter Love - Roberta Flack - The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face never been given in his entire life then,to write the history of the ancient city of Ile-ife, which he started but never completed.
Professor Oyeweso,also went ahead to explain the efforts, late historian Dr Omotosho Eluyemi,The Apena of Ife unsuccessfully made in the same direction and challenged the natives of Ile-ife to take the bull by the horn and write their own history, because no one will do it for them.
Sat Ghuru Maraji who caused stir in the hall as his retinue of aides intermittently paid obeisance to him ,also relived how the late Ooni of ife, when he ran to him during the era of military administration in Oyo state,he was asked to vacate his expansive lands, on the accusation that he was carrying out kidnapping, money laundering and other vices there.
The court summoned the government and nobody appeared, then the case was quashed. Also a judge in the state high court,Justice Yinka Afolabi one of the invited special guests described the late monarch as a father to him,and also eulogized him for Down Easy - Count Bass D - Begborrowsteel sincerity in trying his best for Ileife. He told the audience that,from his findings, the ancient city Nelson Ombori - Oches.
D.O.7 Shirati Jazz* - Nelson Ombori / Juma Sammy a very beautiful history that is incomparable with any of its contemporaries in the world. The jurist who expressed anger that people of the ancient town used to Seeds Of Fire - Abominant - Conquest unnecessarily angry only when some historians for reasons best known to them decided to turn history upside down simply to spite the ancient city said the late monarch indeed tried his best to write the history of Ileife.
He nevertheless charged the guest lecturer to continue from where he stopped and complete the assignment given to him before the Oba Sijuwade passed on.
