“l am here to pay a private visit to Asiwaju Wole Olanipekun and to commend him for the great works he is doing for the Yoruba race. He is one of our shinning stars in Yoruba land. He is the voice of the voiceless and a legal icon that has made us proud”
The Ooni noted that he has followed the progress of Olanipekun long before he ascended the throne of his forebears, adding that Olanipekun is a brand that Yoruba is happy to flaunt.
“You are our pride and joy in Yoruba land and I am happy to be here and I am most humbled by this reception,” the Ooni said.

He extolled the virtues of the Ooni, describing him as a King who prepared himself for the throne.
“Since the ascended the throne of his forebears, he has been doing so much for the unity of the Yoruba race. He has gone to vit the Alaafin. Only a few days ago, he was at the coronation of the Akarigbo of Remo. He has gone to Efon Alaaye, ljero Ekiti and other towns in Yoruba land. He has been going round the world to promote peace and unity amongst our people. Sometimes I wonder where he draws his energy from. May God bless you sir.”
