Yoruba Religion Medicine Ibadan: Concerning the status of Olodumaré, Idowu finds Yoruba theology emphasizes the unique status of Olodumaré. He is supreme over all heaven, acknowledged by all the divinities as the Head to whom all authority and allegiance is due. His status of Supremacy is absolute. Things happen when He approves: things do not come to pass if He disapproves. In worship, the Yoruba hold Him ultimately First and Last; in man’s daily life, he has the ultimate say.
