God is above all kings, says Ooni
FOLLOWING sharp criticisms that trailed the action of Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi (Ojaja II) kneeling to worship God in the church during a thanksgiving service, the monarch has explained that, “no king on earth is above God.”
The monarch, who was berated by critics for kneeling after a week-long coronation activities that was climaxed by a thanksgiving service on Sunday 13th December 2015, at St. Paul’s Anglican Church, Ile-Ife, said it is an unacceptable sacrilege to equate Ooni’risa or any other king to the Almighty God.
In a statement signed by the Director of Communication and Public Affairs, Ooni’s Palace, Ile-Ife, Moses Olafare said, “God is the creator of mankind and it is God that made it possible for the enthronement of any king.
“The Ile Oodua has been drawn to a publication released Wednesday 16th 2015 by an online medium in which His Imperial Majesty, Ooni’risa and Arole Oodua Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi(Ojaja II) was criticised for bowing to God.
“God remains the highest King of kings who has kept all kings alive and had made it possible for me to be crowned as the a king of the source of Yoruba civilisation.
