“In my tradition, Edo, it would have been an affront to actually attempt to shake the hands of the King. Rather, .’s a king who seems unsure of his stature. For no reason should he rise to greet anyone in that crowd or offer to have a handshake with them. Gov. knows better!”

Omofolaranmi01 tweeted,

“You can’t shake a king, that’s Yoruba culture for you. It’s the king’s humility to stretch forth his hand, but IMOLE must not shake him.”

“It’s a sign of respect not to shake the king. If you are from a traditional home you will understand, even if the king stretch his hand regardless you don’t have to shake him unless he insist and gave you the permission.”

“You can’t shake a king even if stretches his hand to shake you. It’s out of respect.”

“Governor Adeleke too like ., probably be wanna greet the Ooni respectfully and he wants the Ooni to be the last person he greets. This particular Ooni is a happy man and he is almost friends with a lot of people and he is quite approachable. I guess that’s why many men likes him for his likable and jovial character.”

A media assistant to the Osun Governor, Gbenga Lawrence, who also shared the videos on X stated that the governor “did not ignore the Ooni of Ife,” and that they exchanged warm greetings.
