Ido LG Boss, Adeojo Joins Others To Mourn Demise Of Olubadan


The Chairman of Ido local government area of Oyo State, Sheriff Adeojo, has mourned the passage of the Olubadan of Ibadanland, His Imperial Majesty, Oba Lekan Balogun Mohood, Okunmade II.

A statement personally signed and made available to journalists in Ibadan quoted the Council Chairman as saying that though the Monarch’s reign was short, he brought peace and stability to Olubadan-in-Council and Ibadanland.

While describing the deceased monarch as a successful politician, an astute and foremost Oba in Oyo State, he condoled with the immediate family, Olubadan-in-Council, Ibadanland, Oyo State Council of Obas and Chiefs and Oyo State government, praying onto God to grant all fortitude to bear the great loss.

He equally appreciated the governor of the state, Engr. Seyi Makinde for planning to give the late monarch a befitting burial.

The statement read, “With a heavy heart, I mourn the death of our great king in Ibadanland, whose demise remains a great loss to the family and the state.

“Though, his reign on the throne of his forebears was too short, Oba Lekan Balogun brought unprecedented legacies, especially peace and stability not only to Olubadan in Council but the entire Ibadanland.

“Before he ascended the throne of Olubadan, Oba Lekan Balogun contributed, in no small ways, towards a united and indivisible Nigeria.

“Throughout his reign, he tirelessly worked towards the betterment of his people, embodying the essence of leadership with grace and dignity. His wisdom, counsel, and unwavering commitment to the welfare of his subjects earned him the respect and admiration of all who had the privilege of knowing him.”

Adeojo, however, prayed to God to elongate the lives of other Traditional Rulers in Oyo State so that their subjects and government at all levels will continue to tap from their naturally gifted wisdom and knowledge to foster a developed, peaceful and united state.
