OXFORD, England, March 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Prominent African King, His Imperial Majesty, Oba Babatunde Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi Ojaja II, Ooni of Ife, and other leading monarchs were welcomed yesterday to Oxford by the world renowned Intellectual icon, Professor Chris Imafidon, the Mayor of Oxford, Mohammed Altaf-Khan and the Oxford University's Museum of Natural history. The royal party enjoyed the visit so much that they could not keep up with the scheduled visit to Westminster, where they were expected to meet British leaders.
Professor Chris Imafidon, described by Fox News/CNN as "Adviser to Presidents, Governments, Monarchs and Leaders" - said that "Universities usually teach students History from the pages of textbook, but today all of us are experiencing history. We have a living, monarch in the flesh," Prof Imafidon then welcomed the Monarch, His Imperial Majesty, Ooni of Ife, and other royals on a historic visit to Oxford University (St Antony's College Hall). Adding "All of us here, professors, scholars, students and staff of different races and backgrounds are gathering in the presence of the highest number of African kings, with full traditional regalia; special white gown, exquisite traditional beads and silver crown, along with a giant African umbrella. Let me on behalf of the entire university community express our profound gratitude for taking time out of your engagements with Her Majesty, the Queen of England to visit us in Oxford"
His Imperial Majesty, Ooni of Ife, said to the standing room-only crowd that "It was a delight to visit Oxford and the Museum of natural history to see ancient artifacts. I greet you all with peace and appeal for unity among people of African and Caucasian descent." He expressed his passion for youth development and the role played by education. Later, on, hearing the news of the London terrorist attack, the Ooni commiserated with British people, expressed condolence to the families of the dead and condemned the attack.
Earlier, the Ooni, the world leaders, and Professor Chris Imafidon were among the dignitaries invited by HM Queen to Westminster Abbey as part of commonwealth celebrations.
Professor Imafidon, currently chairs the ExcellenceinEducation.org.uk (http://www.excellenceineducation.org.uk/) programmes, which are known for supporting inner-city pupils and runs programmes for making genuses from the next generation of students.
