Gov. Oyetola Extols Virtue of Late Akirun
Osun state Governor of Mr Gboyega Oyetola has extolled the virtues of the late Akirun of Ikirun, Oba AbdulRauf Olawale Olayiwola Adedeji, who joined his ancestors in February, this year.
Governor Oyetola stated this in Ikirun at the 40th day Fidau prayer session held in honour of the departed monarch.
He also noted that the late Akirun was a strong supporter of his administration and a respected traditional ruler who cared for his subjects and prioritised their welfare.
The governor who described death as inevitable, said the demise of the monarch had further testified to the fact that death was unpredictable and that every mortal will die.
In his remarks, the Asiwaju of Ikirunland, Chief Gazal Lawal, described the late monarch as an unusual traditional ruler whose reign attracted countless monumental achievements to the ancient town.
Chief Lawal lauded the transformation recorded during the reign of the late Akirun just as he prayed God to grant him eternal rest in paradise.
Speaking on behalf of the traditional rulers in the State, the Timi of Ede, Oba Munirudeen Adesola Lawal, said traditional council in the state had lost a rare gem.
