"Be a Man of Action You Are Known For": Ooni Charges Tinubu, Congratulates Him On Inauguration (READ FULL TEXT)


The Ooni of Ife, Arole Oduduwa, Ooni Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, Ojaja II on Monday congratulated Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu on his successful inauguration as the 16th president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The Ooni in a congratulatory message signed by his Director of Media and Public Affairs, Moses Olafare, charged the new president to waste no time in tackling the challenges confronting the country as a man of action that he is known to be.

The revered monarch further urged the new leader to do well in engaging capable Nigerian youths in his administration as this, he added, is necessary if the country must move forward among the committee of nations globally.

"Mr President, congratulations from The House of Oduduwa to you and your amiable wife who is now the mother of the nation as you have officially taken the mantle of leadership as President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. 

"As we celebrate this remarkable day of your inauguration with you, we wish you monumental success in all the policies of your administration so that Nigeria can become great again and maintain her rightful position not only as truly the giant of Africa but also as a leader within the committee of nations globally.

"We trust that your administration will be marked by good governance characterized by transformational economic growth, adequate security, and progress for all Nigerians both at home and in diaspora. 

"We also trust that you will leverage your wealth of experience as a man of progressive action in mobilising resources and managing diverse interests to unify Nigeria across political, ethnic and religious lines". Ooni said.

The Ooni who doubles as Co-chairman, National Council of Traditional Rulers of Nigeria (NCTRN) charged president Tinubu to carry the Nigeria traditional institution along, especially in tackling the security challenges in the country.

"The traditional rulers in this country are the closest to the people as there is nobody in Nigeria who is not a subject of a particular traditional ruler, this is why it is important for the government to empower us with more strategic constitutional roles especially in the area of security management and conflict resolutions." Ooni said.

In working for Africa, the Ooni urged President Tinubu to partner the progressive African leaders and friends of Africa across the globe like President of Brazil, Luiz Inácio LULA da Silva, who recently hosted the Ooni and his team in Brasilia, Brazil for the unveiling Annual African Traditional Religion Day celebrations.

"As truly the giant of Africa, Nigeria must first of all be great for Nigerians under your watch, and Nigeria must provide progressive leadership of unity and peace for the greatness of Africa under your watch. I have interacted with some African presidents who are truly looking up to Nigeria under your watch as the big brother Africa. This of course dominated our discussions during the my meeting with President Williams Ruto at the State House in Nairobi, Kenya two months ago. 

"Also, the current government in Brazil under President Luiz Inácio LULA da Silva has developed numerous pro Africa policies and programmes. I expect the presidency of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu who himself a Pan-Africanist to take advantage of this for the greatness of Africa.", Ooni added.

It will be recalled, Ooni Ogunwusi who is the Natural Head of the Oduduwa race worldwide had earlier 3 months ago charged Tinubu upon his declaration as president elect to hit the ground running by quickly assembling a transition team of cerebral individuals to put up an economic blueprint capable liberating Nigerians from poverty and insecurity.
