Adesoji Aderemi: Rolls-royce Of Late Ooni Of Ife On Display At OAU Convocation by AutoJoshNG: 2:47pm On Dec 12, 2019


Oba Adesoji Aderemi was the Ooni the Oni of Ife from 1930 to 1980. He was also a political figure who also served as the governor of the Western Region of Nigeria between 1960 and 1962.

He was particularly noted for being a proponent of education for his subjects. For instance, he championed the promotion of education during his reign as Ooni. It was this sentiment that laid the foundation of Oduduwa College in January 1932.

However, one of his greatest legacy in respect of education during his reign was the foundation of the University of Ife (now Obafemi Awolowo Unity). He championed the cause for the University to be located in Ile-Ife. He later went on to donate the land upon which the school is situated.

Oba Aderemi was a very wealthy and powerful monarch. He was also famous for owning some expensive automobiles. One of his automobile of note is a Rolls-Royce Phantom V.

As part of the 2019 Convocation exhibition, and as a tribute to the late Ooni, the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) has put up on display Oba Adesoji Aderemi’s Rolls Royce Phantom V. The car bears the number plate WF1. The convocation events hold from 11th to Saturday, 14th December 2019.

See below, photos of the Oba Adesoji Aderemi’s Rolls Royce Cadillac on display at the convocation ground.

So?

If you know anything about vintage cars then you’d know that even if the car is going to be displayed for 1 minute, all necessary precautions will be taken to protect it from the elements and over-zealous humans too.

A barricade was installed to keep the "over-zealous humans" away. This vehicle has been in their custody for years, yet it still looks good.
I believe the body work isn't done in other to keep the classic look. So what's your point exactly? Are they doing a bad job?

He gave the land in which OOU is built on.
And that was just a few things he did.
