The new Ooni of ife, HRM Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi whose coronation will climax on Monday was in Obafemi Awolowo University during the weekend and was welcomed by students of the institution. The King who showed understanding of the current plight of students in the institution appreciated them for the peace they have maintained as two major events are billed to happen in Ile-Ife; Coronation and Convocation draw near.
While praying for the students, he admonished them to continue to allow peace to reign in the university. He however promised to come back sometimes after his coronation to see the students when he will have a better and nice time with them.
President Muhammadu Buhari and other top notch dignitaries from within the country and outside are expected in Ife today for the official crowning of the new Ooni. Students of Obafemi Awolowo University have however been told to proceed on a compulsory 'mid-semester break' which many has speculated that it is a ploy to ensure students are not on campus to forestall continuation of agitation by the students for better welfare condition which will catch the attention of Buhari since the President's chopper will land on the school's sports complex field.
