Ooni Of Ife And Wole Soyinka Tell Nigerians To Defend Their Ancestral Lands
The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, and Nobel laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka, have jointly called on Nigerians to defend their ancestral homelands against the Federal Government proposed RUGA cattle settlements.
This was made known in a communiqué issued yesterday to highlight details of a meeting between the monarch and Novel Laureate at his (Soyinka’s) home in Idi-Aba, Abeokuta, Ogun State.
The meeting was centred on the state of the nation.
Oba Ogunwusi and Soyinka, in the communiqué, said their call on Nigerians to defend themselves became crucial as the Coalition of Northern Groups gave a 30-day ultimatum to the Federal Government to pass the Ruga project for Fulani herders despite being suspended after many Nigerians went against it.
