Ile-Ife Town: Small Town with The Tallest Statue in West Africa

In developed countries ancient cities are treasured and seen as good sites for tourism. When such historical cities are linked to unique stories with wonderful monuments, they become the most sought after. 16 years ago was the last time I passed through Ile-Ife town, in Osun State, Nigeria which is known as the cradle of the Yoruba race. During my days as a student in one of the greatest universities in Nigeria- Obafemi Awolowo University, situated in Ile-Ife, the only major thing that was known to most students was the Oranmiyan staff.

 

Today, Ile-Ife has come out of her shell to take her place as the cradle of the Yoruba race. It has emerged to stand out as not just an ancient town but a tourist attraction to the world. All thanks to the paramount ruler Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, the Ooni of Ife. Oba Adeyeye who ascended the throne in 2015 is a tourism loving monarch.  According to my guide,Mr. Fati Kayode, Oba Adeyeye has re-branded all the wonderful sites that were abandoned to make it more attractive to tourists. The Osara Shrine wears a new look and also the Idi-Aje. The stone wall of the palace is glowing with white paint. The whole town despite still maintaining the old traits of an ancient town has transformed from ordinary to tourist attraction.

With the rate Oba Adeyeye is moving; Ile-Ife will stand out and even compete with other ancient tourist cities in the world. The wonderful thing about Ile-Ife is the fact that there so many interesting and unique histories about the town which even some of our historians are unaware of.

Old Ife Town
One of the catchiest monuments is the Moremi statue. Moremi plays a significant role in the history of the Yoruba people. This statue is the fourth tallest Statue in Africa and the highest in Nigeria. The feeling of standing closer to one of the greatest women of all time and the record breaking statue (displaces the one at Owerri in Imo State) was awesome that I made a promise to take another trip to that same location.
