Segun Ayinde, Abeokuta
The new Oloja Ekun of Igbesa in Ado-Odo/Ota Local Government Area of Ogun State, Oba Abdul Azeez Oluwatoyin Akinde, has urged well- meaning indigenes of the town to join hands with him to give the community the most benevolent leadership.
The monarch stated this while receiving the staff and instrument of office from the State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, who was represented by the Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Hon. Afolabi Afuape, at his coronation ceremony held in the town.
The Oba urged the indigenes and residents of the community to give him support in steering the affairs of the town for the socio-economic development so as to lead the community to a greater height.
The monarch, while saying that the health, job, and the businesses of his people matter to him, advocated a peaceful coexistence among the members of the community in order to set the pace that would be difficult to erase from the town in the future.
He, therefore, called on companies in his domain to perform their Corporate Social Responsibilities (CSR) to the people while appealing to government and security operatives in the state to partner with the community in the security of lives and properties of his people.
“We give God the glory for making today a historic day in the lives of Igbesaland and my humble self. My sincere appreciation goes to the good people of Igbesa kingdom for their encouragement and support, particularly our chiefs and elders. I am soliciting for your continued support and cooperation to give Igbesa kingdom the most benevolent leadership that it deserves. Let us jointly set a pace that will be difficult to erase in the future,” the monarch said.
