On behalf of the Federal Government and people of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari congratulates Prince Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi on his emergence as the 51st Ooni of Ife and successor to the late Oba Okunade Sijuwade.
President Buhari rejoices with Prince Adeyeye on his nomination as Ooni by the kingmakers of Ife after a keenly contested but peaceful selection process, and confirmation yesterday by Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun State.
As he prepares to begin the rites of ascension to the revered throne of his great ancestors, President Buhari urges the Ooni-designate to commit himself to carrying all his subjects along to a new era of peace, stability and progress in Ife, Yorubaland and Nigeria as a whole.
The President calls on Prince Adeyeye to be prepared to put his new position as Ooni and principal custodian of the rich cultural heritage and traditions of the Yorubas to good use in the service of his people and country.
President Buhari also urges the Ooni-designate to dedicate himself to building on, and surpassing the worthy legacies of his much-acclaimed predecessor, Oba Sijuwade, and working with government and other traditional rulers across the country to foster greater harmony, peaceful co-existence and faster socio-economic development of his people and all Nigerians.
As Prince Adeyeye ascends to the grand throne of the Ooni of Ife, the President prays that God Almighty will grant him the immense wisdom and courage he will require to oversee further progress and greater prosperity for his people.
He wishes the new Ooni a long and highly successful reign in the service of his people and country.

Memorise: And the LORD was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian. Genesis 39:2
Read: Acts 10:38-40
Today, some believers are sick because they went into fornication. Since nobody except God and their sin partner were aware, they secretly continued in the sin. Before long, they exchanged divine health for ill-health. When you take the forbidden fruit of sin you become a piece of bread before your enemies. If you are in this situation run to Jesus today and ask for mercy, restoration of your spiritual life and of what the enemy has stolen from your body! Fornication devours everyone who indulges in it, but if you are keeping yourself pure as Joseph did then the Lord will be with you. We observe from the story of Joseph in Genesis 39:1-9 that, prosperity and God’s presence are interrelated. Joseph prospered because God was with him. Show me a man with whom God is with and I will show you a prosperous fellow. Jesus made a success of His life and ministry because God was with Him (Acts 10:38). If you look through the Bible, you will discover that the reason the saints and patriarchs of old succeeded was because God was with them. Is God with you?
At salvation, God comes inside you. But is God with you? God being with you (Emmanuel) speaks of a partnership existing between you and God. It means you and God are jointly doing whatever He assigns you to do. John 5:17 says:
But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.
In other words, they were not working apart but towards the same direction and goal. Can you say you and God are in full agreement in whatsoever you do?
Father, as You were with Joseph and made all he did to prosper, Be with me and turn everything I touch into gold.
Bible in one year: Ezekiel 40-42
After eight years of producing and hosting the acclaimed studio talk show, New Dawn, Funmi Iyanda is returning to the screen at the helm of a different kind of show. The new project is called Talk With Funmi (TWF).
Talk With Funmi is an exciting new programme that captures people around Nigeria. It is a thought provoking, illuminating and entertaining journey into the life of Nigerians from all over the country.
Funmi Iyanda journeys from state to state talking with Nigerians from all spheres of life. The show talks to people everywhere – capturing discussions that range from the hard hitting stories of the day to day challenges of Nigeria with some light-hearted banter and fun along the way. With the first season of recording already completed in some states, don’t be surprised if TWF soon shows up at your doorstep.
Beautifully produced and shot on high definition video, Talk With Funmi is a technical masterpiece. The excellent cinematography and deep, rich colours of the production provide tactile pleasure. TWF is an artistic blend of documentary, reality television and talk show and thus resists categorization. The result is groundbreaking and innovative television from a production team led by award-winning director Chris Dada.
With 36 states, over 200 ethnic groups and 140 million people, Nigeria is alive and teeming with vibrant stories. Nigerians are a people who love to talk, and Nigerians still have great stories to tell – stories of joy, laughter, hard work and success. Stories of suffering and harrowing pain; stories of hope and resilience in spite of all odds. As Nigeria moves towards 50, this is the perfect opportunity to capture transformative Nigerian conversations—conversations that will ignite meaningful change.
It is the power of these conversations that will unlock the potential of our nation and reaffirm the bonds that hold us together as a country. These are the stories that award winning broadcaster and journalist Funmi Iyanda has set out to capture in an ambitious and innovative television show.
The TWF journey promises to be one that is fresh, eye opening and fun and will be broadcast to TV audiences across Africa.
Talk With Funmi is an Ignite Media production.
