<p class="">The Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Ogunwusi, on Saturday, said that another waterfall, set to be unveiled, had been discovered at the Ife Grand Resort, Ile-Ife.</p>

<h1>Ogunwusi disclosed this when executives of the Nigeria Tour Operators (NATOP) visited him at his palace.</h1>

<p class="">The monarch said the land on which the resort was built, was home to wild animals.</p>

<p class="">He explained that the animals had, however, been appeased and had moved further into the bush to make the area safe for operations and tourism.</p>

<p class="">According to him, in his quest to beautify the place and transform it to a world class tourist site, a waterfall that beats human imagination was discovered and remodeled.</p>

<p class="">This is a mysterious waterfall that has just been discovered. It elicits about seven colours of water including red, blue, green and so on.</p>

<p class="">We are still doing some work on the site, and when the project is complete, the whole world will marvel; and this is one of the things that will sell our country internationally.</p>

<p class="">The resort has been under construction for two years now; and when we are done, there will be nothing like it in the world, he said.</p>

<p class="">According to Ogunwusi, since he assumed the throne of his ancestors, he has made many discoveries that were beyond human imagination and beats world science.</p>

<p class="">He described the discoveries as metaphysical things which truly attested to the myth that Ife was the cradle of mankind.</p>

<p class="">We have too many discoveries in Ife that defy science; and which will blow the minds of tourists.</p>

<p class="">Most of these mysterious discoveries are what we need to sell to the world because we cannot continue to shroud them in secrecy, which is the reason I decided to rebrand our heritage sites in Ife.</p>

<p class="">This is a very ancient palace of more than 10,000 years; I have buildings of 300, 400 to 500 years within the palace and they have all become monuments which many people come from around the world to see.</p>

<p class="">As a trained real estate developer, I have blended tradition and modernity in terms of design and concept of the palace, he said.</p>

<p class="">The monarch called on Nigerians to stop depending on the government to groom tourism, but to rather tap into the tourism potentials at the grassroots.</p>

<p class="">He said this would create massive employment opportunities for the teeming unemployed youths and reduce crime in the society.</p>

<p class="">We all must stop blaming government on the state of the tourism sector in Nigeria, let us take advantage of the huge tourism money spinners around us, Ogunwusi advised.</p>
