Ooni of Ife, Ooni Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi Ojaja II, on Saturday July 27th, led thousands of Osun faithfuls who stormed his Ile Oodua Palace across the country to celebrate the 2019 edition of Ita-Osun festival.

 

While addressing newsmen after offering supplications to the deity, the Ooni described Osun Sengese as the progenitor of all water deities across the world, adding that the festival was meant to acknowledge the deity which is known for fortunes.

“As you all known that water is indispensable to our survival as human, Osun Sengese is a major deity in Yoruba land known for the performance of wonders through the water. Water has numerous healing and prosperity potentials as brought to us by Sengese, the mother of all water deities across the world. I pray that we shall always be fortunate, may our glory never be buried under water and may we never encounter flooding. Happy celebration.” he said

 

The festival was witnessed by traditional rulers, high chiefs, foreign tourists from Brazil, Ireland Cuba to join the Osun worshipers who had come from all the states of the Yorubaland.
