The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi has said that Yorubas will soon have a common anthem that will signify their unity wherever they are.

The foremost traditional ruler also disclosed that he would soon make public his book that contains the rich culture of the Yoruba and why traditional rulers must speak with one voice.

He made this known during a courtesy call to the Ekiti state Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose at the Government House, Ado Ekiti to round-off his two-day official visit to the state.

Ooni said the need for an anthem had become necessary in view of the need to inculcate the spirit of solidarity, unity, service, love and togetherness in every Yoruba person, irrespective of age and status. He said he drew this inspiration after listening to the one already adopted by Ekiti State many years ago.

The Ooni said he was challenged by the contents of the Ekiti anthem, which he said was laced with messages of solidarity, hope, peace, and unity and added that his visit to the state had been most rewarding.
