Resort Owners Unite as Ooni Comes to La Campagne Tropicana


A significant milestone in Nigerian holiday culture was achieved when Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi Ojaja II, the Ooni if Ife spent his honeymoon with his newly wedded wife (Olori) Wurola.

The Ooni who opened an important window of opportunity for a working relationship with Otunba Wanle Akinboboye, owner of La Campagne Tropicana since his ascension to the throne, sent a timely message on patriotism, unity and cooperation by jettisoning his own resort in Epe or the lure of travelling abroad.

Although his predecessor the late Oba Sijuwade Okunade Olubuse II had also visited La Campagne Tropicana in August 2009 with an entourage of about 28 Yoruba Obas, the royal visit of the Ooni led to unprecedented inflow of visitors to the resort with many of his subjects in Lagos and even in Ile Ife and environs as well as the residents of Ikegun and adjoining communities trooping to the resort to hold court and catch a glimpse of the Ooni who graciously played host to everyone that came calling.
