The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has said he did not endorse the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential aspirant Bola Tinubu for the 2023 general elections, contrary to media publications.
Mr Ogunwusi during an interview with Arise TV noted that his office as the Ooni of Ife, the Yoruba cradle, mandates him to support and pray for all aspirants contesting in the 2023 presidential election.
“I’m a royal father, I accepted this throne as a young individual. God actually brought me to the throne that has been in existence for hundreds of thousands of years, I have to support and pray for all,” the monarch said.
Advising Nigerians to look beyond ethnic and religious bias to vote for the best candidates, Ooni suggested that some candidates are better than others.
