OONI URGES YOUTHS TO EMULATE BRIGHT YOUNG MINDS AS HE RECEIVES MTN CEO IN ILE-IFE


The Arole Oduduwa and Ooni of Ife, His Imperial Majesty Ooni Adeyeye Enitan Babatunde Ogunwusi Ojaja II has urged Nigerian youths to emulate exceptional qualities of outstanding members of their generation.

Ooni Ogunwusi gave the advice while playing host to the Chief Executive Officer, MTN Nigeria, Mr. Karl Olutokun Toriola, at The Ile Oodua, His Palace on Saturday.

The monarch who is the Co-chairman of the National Council of Traditional Rulers of Nigeria (NCTRN) described the C.E.O. as a worthy ambassador of the prestigious Yoruba heritage, adding that his good virtues should be emulated by young ones especially those building careers in different fields of life.

"There is model for everything as we cannot put something on nothing. I recommend bright young minds like our own Karl Toriola to all youths, they should look up to him and learn core lessons of life particularly about growth from him.

"For those who don't know, Toriola's achievements and good nature are true reflection of his good home especially his father who is known for peace and development between Ile-Ife and Modakeke communities. So our C.E.O. is an example of an apple that doesn't fall far from its tree.


"He is our son who was born here in Ile-Ife, had his education up till tertiary level here and crowned it all with his productive marriage into the noble Omisakin family here in Ife. So we are proud of him and shall continue to celebrate him", Ooni stated.

Earlier in his speech, the C.E.O. described Ooni Ogunwusi as an icon of greatness who provides dependable leadership for all descendants of Oduduwa particularly the youths globally.

"This visit is to thank our father for being good and equally see how best to grow our communities and their people. We have started with many activities and I am sure we will do more through collaboration going further.", he said.
