"Olórí ilé tílé bá tú mọ́ lórí òun ló lẹ̀bi ọ̀rọ̀ " A family head in whose charge the family collapsed or became desolate is to be blamed.
What was not lost in the times of our forefathers will not be lost in our times. Àse! Whoever is destined to lead must do so with conviction. His decisions must always support the will of Olodumare and the Ancestral Promise of his lineage, while cultivating the natural gifts and talents of each individual member at the same time.
And so, conference is with the many but decision-making is with the few. The many will not always understand. Nor will they always agree. But let them remain faithful to Olodumare, the Ancestral Promise and their personal destinies so that the spirit of truth will resonate with them. This is what helps keep the family on one accord.
