Nigerian politician, Bola Tinubu has been accused of disrespecting the Yoruba traditional institution with his recent action.
Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi and Bola Tinubu
Femi Fani-Kayode, a former Minister of Aviation, has attacked former Lagos State governor, Bola Tinubu after a video emerged showing him refusing to stand up to greet the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, at the Coronation of the Oniru of Iruland in Lagos state on Sunday, September 6.
The Ooni of Ife had arrived at the event and was walking to the high table when he stopped by to greet Tinubu.
Some Nigerians took to social media to bash Tinubu for failing to accord the monarch his respect by standing up to greet him. Others have also condemned the monarch for stopping to greet Tinubu.
In a tweet posted this morning, FFK says it was "insulting and shameful" for Tinubu to have refused to stand up to greet the monarch.
''That the Asiwaju of Bourdillon refused to stand up to greet the Ooni of Ife speaks volumes. This was not only deeply insulting to every Ife & indeed son & daughter of Odua but it is also a crying shame. Would a northern pol. leader refuse to stand up for his traditional ruler?'' his tweet reads
