The ancient and historical city of Ile Ife will be a Mecca of sorts on the 24th of February 2020 when the annual Aje Festival will commence. The epoch event will begin with spiritual prayers and cleansing of the entire Ife kingdom at the palace of the Loni before other activities proceed. Having as the chief host, the Ooni of Ife, His Imperial Majesty Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi ojaja II and Princess Dr. Toyin Kolade as host, the 2020 Aje Festival will no doubt herald a new breath of life into the commercial and economic activities not only in Ile Ife and environs, but throughout Yorubaland and the whole of Nigeria. Prayers are going to be offered by top spiritual leaders, royal fathers and religious leaders. This is meant for the Almighty God to intervene into economic brouhaha bedeviling the growth and rapid development of Nigeria
The Aje Festival is going to be an All-White attires affair symbolizing purity, peace, unity and progressiveness. Market women and men are also expected to display their farm product, food stuffs, goods and products for the array of visitors who trooped into the Cradle of Yoruba Race to savour the natural gift bestowed upon the flourishing land of Ile Ife. There will be enough merry making and fun with lots of entertainment and dining/wining to make the 2020 Aje Festival a memorable and indelible event.
