The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, yesterday received youthful presidential aspirant, Olufemi Ajadi, and his entourage in the palace, praying for success of the aspirant at the polls.

Ajadi, a strong contender to the 2023 presidency on the platform of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), had gone to the palace to seek royal blessings and guidance in his quest.

His royal majesty, while welcoming the entourage, enjoined the politician to remain focused on the race, wishing him success, long life and prosperity.

“I wish you well; I pray that your political ambition would come to pass with long life and prosperity. I pray that all obstacles from outside and within will not overcome you,” he prayed.

He commended the courage and the political energy Ajadi had thus far brought to his quest, urging him to remain politically persistent, as the only way to prove his mettle at the polls.

Earlier, Ajadi had told the Ooni of his roots as an indigenous person from Ibadan, Oyo State, who however resides and practices politics in Obafemi Owode Local Government Area.

He added that he had come to pay homage, brief his royal majesty on his efforts thus far and also seek guidance.

Ajadi said that he had also come to the monarch on the best way that the interest of the South-west would also be effectively taken care of should it be tabled before his royal majesty.

Among those in Ajadi’s entourage was Hon. Wasiu Oluwafemi Ajirotutu, a Senatorial aspirant for Ogun East Senatorial District, who is also the Director-General of the Olufemi Ajadi’s campaign team.

The team had earlier been entertained to rich Yoruba cultural displays by different musical troupes in the palace.
