Contrary to claims that the Governor of Osun State, Ademola Adeleke, snubbed a handshake from the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, at recent event in Ondo State, a video revealing what transpired at the event has proven otherwise.
A former presidential aspirant, Dele Momodu, on Thursday, shared the video on X, revealing that Adeleke went to greet the monarch where he was seated, and they exchanged warm pleasantries before he headed back to his seat.
Momodu’s caption read, “The Ooni met Governor Adeleke at the Ondo event and came to greet the governor. After some time, the governor said we should go and greet the Ooni. Most of the camera people were not present so they only captured the tail end. Fortunately, we found one.”
The Osun State Government, on Wednesday, called on the public to disregard a video being circulated on social media purporting that Adeleke disrespected the Ooni at a public function.
