The Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Ogunwusi, has described Google as a modern-day Ifa also known as the oracle in Yoruba land.
Oba Ogunwusi made this known at a function on Wednesday.
Noting that ‘Ifa’ is a form of divination used in sourcing for information and knowledge through traditional consultation, the monarch said Google originated from ‘Ifa’.
According to him “ ‘Ifa’ which originated several thousands of years ago and is seen as the voice of the almighty God referred to as ” Orisa Oke”, a supreme being above other lesser gods. Without ‘Ifa’, there could never have been google.
“it is the modern-day version of ‘Ifa’ which is all about information, getting knowledge from the Almighty God, whenever you search google for information or knowledge, you are consulting ‘Ifa’ and without ‘Ifa’, there would not have been google,” he said
