The OLU of Yewa was part of the traditional rulers who witnessed a historic visit when the newly crowned Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, on Sunday paid a historic visit to the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, who celebrated his 45th coronation anniversary. The visit by Ooni was unique as he became the first Ife monarch to visit the Alaafin since 1937. The visit was equally exceptional, especially with the rivalry over supremacy that existed between the Alaafin and Ogunwusi successor, Oba Okunade Sijuade.
About 100 Yoruba traditional rulers witnessed the historic visit. HRM, Oba Kehinde Gbadewole Olugbenle was part of the traditional rulers who witnessed the historic visit.
