I am a traditionalist, Christian and Muslim – Ooni of Ife

The Traditional head of Yorubaland, the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi has said that contrary to popular opinion, there is nothing wrong with practising traditional religion.

Speaking in a recent interview with the Osasu show, the Ooni said he has been able to discover that all religions “are one.”

Oba Ogunwusi added that there is only one God being worshipped in different ways.

He said he is a traditionalist, born into a Christian family and a practicing Muslim as well.

He also, “I’m not a Christian alone, I can be called a Muslim too. I practice all the religion very well.”

“I go to the mosque to pray, I attend church services. Yes I am a traditionalist as well.”

He added, “I have been able to see the light that there’s nothing demonic about our ancient religion.”

He also attributed the current view of traditional religions as being demonic to westernization and the lack of understanding of the colonial masters when they came to the country.
