Speaking with Adeyinka Olaiya , the Ogboni king said : “ It is high time Yorubas launch the campaign in Brazil too , I am set to also make sure that “ #Esu is not Satan@Brazil “ is certainly campaigned in Brazil and around the world , Òrìṣà Esu is the sincere Òrìṣà at the top of the 801 Irumoles , the Òrìṣà who completes the last one at the top of the 800 Irumoles making it 801 . Òrìṣà Esu sees your back while you see just your front , Òrìṣà Esu gives accordingly , Òrìṣà Esu is a mediator, a counselor , a peace maker , an ardent advocate of the truth , a messenger to Olodumare. It is blasphemy to attach Òrìṣà Esu to evils , Òrìṣà Esu cautions only , Òrìṣà Esu asks for the rights of other deities accordingly , Òrìṣà Esu cautions excesses and abuses from mankind. it is unwise to compare Òrìṣà Esu to the biblical Satan . Let’s revive the Yoruba tradition , let’s lead the crusade “ Oba Aderonmu revealed .
