News coming from the Palace of Ojaja II, His Imperial Majesty, Oba Babatunde Adeyeye Ogunwusi regarding his two-week UK visit this March; which is his first official visit, states that any unofficial reception/activities outside his itinerary will be frowned at; warning that His Majesty will keep strictly to his official itinerary.

News reaching the Palace about Nigerian groups and Yoruba Organisations in the UK churning out various invites to hold dinners, reception and award ceremonies with the Monarch in attendance; and demanding payment from Nigerians has not gone well with the Ooni, and he warns Nigerians to be careful who they give their money to and what they pay for. Nigerians in the UK are urged to attend only the official gala night in his honour; billed for the 24th of March 2017 at the Arora Ballroom, InterContinental Hotel, 02 London.

The Ooni's visit is based on the invitation of her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth Il as a special guest speaker during the Commonwealth Day Service and the Commonwealth Africa Summit from the 13th to 15th March 2017 whose theme is "Leveraging our Commonwealth Heritage for economic development and collective growth"

In line with his itinerary, the Ooni plans to meet with various socio-cultural groups and various business stakeholders.
