Recieving the Monarch, Governor Soludo said that the likes of the Ooni is needed for national healing in this critical challenging time of Nigeria’s nationhood.
The Governor described him as the most travelled king and encouraged him to keep being the bridge builder.
He noted that now that a President had been elected, Nigerians owe him a duty to support him, saying that the traditional institution, being a stable entity, is the needed building block to help salvage the nation.
The Governor noted that the institution provide the balancing force for the country, especially if everyone bond together, noting that there is increased need for more national leaders who see everyone as one people and the country as one entity, to ensure stability for the nation.
The Ooni, who had some kings in his entourage later presented a symbolic gift of bronze carving to the Governor, which had the image of a hunter, standing on the rock.
