In fulfilling the sacred duty that is entrusted into my care by our Ancestors, and in furtherance of my dedication to revitalize our cultural valuable elements which are integral parts of our nation’s economic revolution and history preservation, I led the descendants of Odùduwà across the globe and millions of others to broadly celebrate the goodness of Ajé (deity of fortunes, wealth, and economic prosperity), and to pay their obeisance.
AJÉ, the goddess of riches, was created at the beginning of time and sent to the world alongside Olokun, the goddess of the oceans. The first currency in the world, created by nature from beneath the sea, was spent by all races of the planet.
It was initially spent & found in Èjìgbòmekùn Ifè’s market, which was run by AJÉ. AJÉ & Olokun are Elédùmarè’s ambassadors, & they continue to be the supernatural benefactors & custodians of earthly riches, directing human trade, commercial endeavors, and economic prosperity.
Farmers tilt the ground and pray to Ajé, women perform minute transactions, young men utilize technology to make payments, members of various religious institutions make payments, global businesses etc. all pay obeisance to Ajé.
Our culture compellingly offers us hope for a more diverse and integrated country. We must believe passionately and strongly that our culture can lead our country to economic resurrection and national riches.
It has the creed, importance, and natural advantages to take us back to the ancient past of wealth distribution and to turn our cities into centers of commerce and prosperity.
Over the last six decades, our nation’s enforced governance system needs to be overhauled since some of its procedures are systemically ill-conceived and flawed.
In the 21st century, it’s worth noting that African culture is home to more than 70% of the core ingredients of human-generated riches. We must all work together to usher in a new age of governance that prioritizes the integration of our cultural values into our daily lives.
Nigeria’s economic progress and prosperity may be reached more quickly if its leaders follow the old route and return to the birthplace of trade and commerce. In Nigeria and Africa, no one should be impoverished. #OoniofIfe #Aje2022
