President Muhammadu Buhari has lauded the memory of the late Ooni of Ice, Oba Adesoji Aderemi, saying his memory would remain evergreen.

The President, in a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, paid glowing tribute to the late Ooni on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the passage of the foremost monarch.

In a message he penned to the family of the late Ooni, who was also Governor of the Old Western Nigeria Region, President Buhari recalled the many achievements of the monarch cum businessman.

“It gives me deep sense of pleasure and fulfillment to do this brief tribute in memory of the illustrious Ooni of Ife, Oba Adesoji Tadenikawo Aderemi, who reigned between 1930 and 1980.

“On this 40th Remembrance Anniversary of the great man, the country recalls the imprints of a foremost Nationalist, very successful businessman, former Governor, Western Region (1960-1962), and traditional ruler, on the sands of time.

“To the benefit of his memory, Ooni Aderemi built schools, dispensaries, churches, museums, and attracted the establishment in his domain of waterworks, electricity projects, and the University of Ife (now Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife).

“It is also on record that the respected monarch was a Member, Legislative Council of Nigeria (1946-1951); Delegate, African Conference, London (1948); President, Western House of Chiefs (1952-1960); Member, Federal House of Representatives/Minister (1952-1954); led Nigeria’s delegation to Queen Elizabeth II’s Coronation (1953); and Member, Nigeria Constitutional Conferences (1953-1958).

“As the family remembers this awesome personality, knighted twice by the Queen of England, it gladdens the heart that his memory remains evergreen. Please, keep this alive, for the guidance and inspiration of the current and subsequent generations.

“May God give us more illustrious people in the mould of Ooni Adesoji Aderemi. Amen,” the President wrote.

Oba Okunade Sijuade was unable to follow the footsteps of his predecessor cry

Ife had the most unprecedented growth and development during his reign. Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife was his influence

Ooni Aderemi married Olori Segilola from Modakeke then

Sijuade loathed the Modakeke people till his death.
Two crises held between Ife and Modakeke during Sijuade’s reign, 1981 (Sijuade was coronated in 1980) and 1997.
