50 Students Get Scholarships At Ooni’s Christmas Party

About 50 students have received scholarships from Adeyeye Ogunwusi, the Ooni of Ife.

Moses Olafare, director of media and public affairs at the Ooni’s palace, disclosed this via Facebook on Wednesday.

In the post, Olafare said the scholarships were announced during the cultural and academic presentation at the Christmas festival held in the palace on Tuesday.

Olafare also said the beneficiaries include primary students, secondary students, and students with special needs in Ife.

Temitope Adesegun, the monarch’s wife who represented him at the event, urged the students to be focused.

She also advised the parents to train their kids the godly way.

“While you listen to music, watch movies and socialize, pick from what is good only. Do not imbibe bad habits because such is capable of destroying you and your purpose in life,” she said.

“Kabiyesi cannot wait to hear and celebrate your success stories in the nearest future, so he is urging you to be right and do right at all times.

“To our daddies and mummies here present, we need to train these children to have the fear of God. When a child fears God, he/she will be diligent, hardworking, obedient to their parents and on every other people that they come in contact with.”

Olusola Adewusi, the wife of the deputy governor of Osun, was also present at the event.
