As the race towards who becomes the new Ooni of Ife hots up, even with the court injunction restraining any of the ruling houses from presenting any candidate, reports have it that the Giesi ruling House are tipping two brothers as candidates – Prince Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi and Prince Adetunji Ogunwusi.
Recall that before the court injunction, the Ife kingmakers had declared that it was the turn of the Giesi House to present candidates for the stool.
However, the two candidates being tipped seem to have issues that many want the kingmakers to look at before filling the exalted stool of the Ooni of Ife.
Below is a report by The Elite, which looks at those issues:
Different articles have recently surfaced in the electronic and print media, which seem to suggest that Prince Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi and his brother, Prince Adetunji Ogunwusi are being tipped as two of the possible candidates from the Giesi ruling House of Ile-Ife, for the exalted stool of the Ooni of Ife.
Some of these articles have listed the various business interests and real estate projects purportedly undertaken by the Ogunwusi brothers, their family members and business partners in Nigeria, yet all failed to mention the trail of woes that most of these projects have reportedly inflicted on unsuspecting members of the public, who were on their earnest quest to purchase homes in Nigeria.
From Primewaterview Estate to Safecourt Apartments, Jacob Mews Estate to Midland Court, whether using the companies Howard Raork, Primewaterview Ltd or Gran Imperio, or any of the other corporate entities intermittently used by the Ogunwusi brothers, his family members and their partners for these projects, the brothers and their accomplices have continued to leave a trail of incomplete developments, undelivered housing units, multiplicity of claims, and short-changed buyers, many of whom have felt disgruntled enough to drag them, their accomplices and their companies to court, as well before the EFCC.
A simple search on the internet will reveal various articles and reports that present a clearer picture of the “projects” embarked upon by these two “candidates” and their partners, including but not limited to the following:
JACOBS MEWS ESTATE
The revelations from these references above should be of particular interest to members of the Giesi Ruling House, the Kingmakers in particular, and the good people of Ile-Ife, all of whom may be encouraged to dig a little deeper to find out more about the candidates who are seeking to ascend to such a revered position. Indeed, in this new era of anti-corruption, it may be a necessary act, in order to ensure that the stool of the cradle of the Yoruba race is neither compromised nor brought into disrepute in the near future, and also to enable those still seeking justice through the courts and other agencies to attain it.
