#Postponement of the visit of Ooni / YHCAV exclusive dinner with the Ooni on Friday 8th November 2019#
The Yoruba Heritage and cultural association of Victoria (YHCAV ) would like to show appreciation to our members, sponsors, donors and supporters towards the upcoming 2019 Yoruba Day event and the proposed visit of the Ooni of Ife as the special guest of honour for their moral and financial support.
Unfortunately, we regretfully have to announce the postponement of the visit and the proposed exclusive dinner of Friday 8th November 2019.
This is due to the recent advice from the palace seeking a postponement.
According to the Palace, it is due to unforeseen circumstances and factors beyond the control of the Ooni. (Please see attached video of Ooni commiserating with members).
However, YHCAV is strongly stating that the Yoruba Day 2019 on 9th November 2019 is still going ahead as planned.
YHCAV sincerely regrets any inconveniences caused by this postponement.
For further enquires Please do not hesitate to email President@yorubaheritage.com.au or email@example.com.
