Ooni A Bridge-Builder – Lagos Speaker, Mudashiru Obasa

Lagos Speaker, Mudashiru Obasa, has said in a condolence statement the late Ooni of Ife, Oba Okunade Sijuwade, died at a time the ‘country needs his fatherly role’. Obasa told journalists that the late monarch “was a bridge-builder who always want the best for his people and Nigerians in general”.
“This is the time the country needs his fatherly role especially as government at all levels march graciously to tackle the various challenges facing it. But the ultimate decision lies with God Almighty and He has decided to take away Ooni at this time, as human, we don’t have the power to question God.”  He commiserated with the Osun state Governor Rauf Aregbesola and wished the Ooni a peaceful rest.
