Ooni also said, I would use the highly spiritual moment of seclusion as “a point of contact to God Almighty toward resolving all issues in Nigeria, as the country gears up for next year’s general election”.

Ogunwusi, the Co-chairman of National Council of Traditional Rulers of Nigeria (NCTRN), said, “Youths are angry and no one can blame them for that. Just imagine the number of months they have been kept out of schools. ASUU and government must unite and end this”.

“I am praying that the process goes seamlessly acceptable to all for peace and prosperity of our land,” the Ooni said.

Ogunwusi insisted that it was a period of fasting and prayer to appease God and seek blessings for our land.
