The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, on Tuesday met with President Muhammadu Buhari in the presidential villa, Abuja.
“The meeting with the President was about peace and progress of the nation which he stands for and I stand for,” the Ooni said after the meeting. “What is also key is youth empowerment. That is the main purpose of this meeting. There is a lot. I am currently working with the Minister of Agriculture. We have been able to assemble over 200,000 youths within a space of 30 days. It is unbelievable. We are encouraging them to go back to the farm.”
