The recent visit of Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, the Ooni of Ife, to the Kuje Correctional Facility sparked various speculations, particularly concerning his supposed visit to Godwin Emefiele, the embattled former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).


Addressing these assumptions, the monarch clarified the purpose of his visit, emphasizing its connection to a meaningful advocacy initiative.

In an official statement released by his spokesperson, Moses Olafare, the Ooni highlighted that his presence at the correctional facility was in support of an advocacy program orchestrated by the Hopes Alive Initiative (HAI), an NGO founded by one of his wives, Queen Temitope.


The program, developed in collaboration with Kuje Correctional Centre, aimed at championing causes related to the rehabilitation and welfare of inmates.

Olafare also dismissed the misconceptions surrounding the visit, condemning the attempt to discredit the monarch, affirming that the visit was solely for the advocacy event and not to meet with Emefiele.


This clarification arrives in the wake of recent public discussions regarding the Ooni of Ife's engagement with unconventional activities, such as hosting the cast of the reality show, Real Housewives of Lagos. This move attracted both admiration and criticism, with some questioning the monarch's involvement in societal affairs.

Additionally, a prior report detailed the bail granted to Godwin Emefiele, amounting to N300 million, by Justice Hamza Muazu of the High Court in the Federal Capital Territory. The bail conditions required two sureties with landed property in the Maitama District of the FCT.


The Ooni of Ife's visit to the Kuje Correctional Facility stands as a testament to his commitment to social causes and rehabilitation efforts within the community.

It reinforces the significance of advocacy initiatives in fostering positive change and support for correctional facilities, emphasizing the need for collective involvement in societal welfare.
