The Arole Oodua and Ooni of Ife, Ooni Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi Ojaja II, in conjunction with the authorities of the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), is set to unveil the book written on Moremi Ajasoro, an Ife queen who sacrificed herself to be enslaved for the liberty of her people and mankind.
This was contained in a press statement released on Monday by Oonis’s director of Media, Comrade Moses Olafare, who said the launching ceremony, expected to be chaired by HRM, Oba Francis Olusola Alao, the Olugbon of Ile-Igbon and Vice Chairman, Oyo State Council of Obas and Chiefs, is slated to hold 11 am on Saturday, 14th July, 2018 at the Oduduwa Hall of the prestigious university.
According to him, the book, published by Princess Ronke Ademiluyi and House of Oduduwa Foundation, in collaboration with the Institute of Cultural Studies, Obafemi Awolowo University, talked about the strength and power of a woman in ancient Yoruba history, warning that the people must prevent the rich Yoruba culture and history against extinction.
“People without history and culture are doomed to extinction. This book,
Queen Moremi Ajasoro, reminds us of the pride of womanhood to encourage the values of decency, courage, hardwork, justice, and sacrifice for public good, contentment and integrity.” Olafare said.
