He wrote; “Over the past four years of my ascension to the Throne of my forbearers, one of my core Royal mission has been to reconstruct the worldview of our young populations as I instill in them new cultural attributes through beliefs, values, practices, norms, tradition, heritage and understanding extraordinary corpus moments in African history.
Over the weekend I was blessed to host some excellent youths that spent the weekend with me here at the Royal Court of the Kingdom of Ife (Ile-Oodua). It was an audacious moment of imprinting ambitious ideas for greatness in their minds as well as stemming up their spirit to share in my vision of re-writing our stories, celebrating in our ancestors achievements and recording their challenges of the past for the generations ahead.
Young people must never forget their culture and heritage, it is the greatest asset and wealth that we all must embrace.
