It Was Sacrilegious For APC Governors To Boycott Ooni’s Burial – Afenifere by erunz(m): 9:22am On Aug 17, 2015
The Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere, has berated the Osun State governor, Rauf Aregbesola and other All Progressives Congress, APC, governors in the South-West for failing to attend Friday’s burial service held for the late Ooni of Ife, Oba Okunade Sijuwade, describing their boycott as sacrilegious.

National Publicity Secretary of the pan Yoruba group, Yinka Odumakin told Punch yesterday in Osogbo that the governors ought to have honoured the departed traditional ruler by being physically present at the burial service but chose not to.

According to him, “it will be most unfortunate if they did not attend the Ooni’s burial because of politics. I believe they have other reasons.

“Not attending the burial is condemnable because the throne of the Ooni is the foremost in Yorubaland.

“If they carried politics into that, then their action is sacrilegious and a great disrespect to Oduduwa , who is the progenitor of the Yoruba race,” Odumakin said.

Speaking in the same vein, the PDP governorship candidate in the last election in the state, Senator Iyiola Omisore informed the newspaper that it was unfortunate for Aregbesola and other APC governors in the South-West to shun the burial programme.

The PDP chieftain, who was once Osun deputy governor, however applauded President Muhammadu Buhari, for sending Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo to represent him at the burial ceremony.

Obafemi Awolowo legacies had been long strangulated by Yoruba leaders: a big ghosa to Prof. Yemi Osibanjo, big shame on all other South-West Governors save Dr. Olusegun Mimiko.


It is a crass disaster and a slap on the entire yoruba nation that majority of the south-west APC Governors had chosen to flagrantly disregard the requisite honour meant to be accorded the late Icon and deity of Yoruba kingdom, the Oni of Ife during the burial rites.

They should be sanctioned!!!

The Ooni was a conspicuous PDP leader. Those governors must have felt the brunt of his partisan politics. But they should have shown some courtesy for the traditional post that he held.

there is a limit where partisan politics should be played out. You obviously have no respect for the late Ooni or the exalted office and symbology which he represented. Be careful no one spits on your grave like you're doing to this great man when your time comes

YOU ARE RIGHT.

HE SOLD HIS RESPECT WHEN HE SOLD YORUBA OUT TO BABANGIDA, ABACHA.

WHEN HE COLLECTED THE CONTRACT OF IBADAN ILESHA DUAL CARRIAGEWAY ONLY TO CONSTRUCT A ROAD BEING MENDED DAILY BEFORE COMPLETION OF THE PROJECT.

Younger folks wouldn't know.
But I am old enough to see his dance of shame under IBB and Abacha.
He did not do well. Go to Ife hinterland and see what he achieved with his purported influence.
He did not do well. Truth must be said.

“Not attending the burial is condemnable because the throne of the Ooni is the foremost in Yorubaland.

Of what relevance and importance was his useless throne to Yoruba people when all he did with it was sabotaging and denying his own Yoruba people?

He was nothing but a useless political and pimped Oba to the highest bidder...

It was during my OAU years that Ibadan-Ife was done and even before i graduated, it was already a death trap. i think this was completed before the road that led to Ilesha from the outskirt was started?

Why is there so much hate among Yorubas,if its not Modakeke vs Ife tribal war,or the Alaye boys in one street attacking the Alaye boys in another street,or the battle of touts on who governs a particular motor park, yoruba politicians vs their elders,Obas vs their followers,or the Odis in Ode refered as slaves by the so called Yoruba free born.
This culture of hate is been transfered from their land to other innocent ethnic groups in Nigeria.
The question is,why is their so much hate among the yorubas?

Even GEJ that was endorsed by the late Ooni, was he at the ceremony?

How many of the Ooni's PDP friends attended the burial ceremony?
