The palace of the Ooni of Ife, Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, has revealed why the king opted for Olori Moronke Naomi Silekunola Ogunwusi.
There was jubilation at Ile-Ife, Osun State yesterday as the Ooni received his new wife at the palace, a day after he marked his 44th birthday.
The palace said he married the woman because of the spiritual strength she will bring to the kingdom and the fear of God in her.
He also revealed that the marriage rights were done privately in Akure, Ondo State and she was later received at the Ooni’s palace.
“Her Majesty, Olori Moronke Naomi Silekunola Ogunwusi is the new Yeyeluwa Oodua.
“Necessary rites fully performed,” the statement read.
