Osun Governor, Adegboyega Oyetola has joined Governor Seyi Makinde, government and people of Oyo State in mourning the demise of Olubadan of Ibadan, Oba Saliu Akanmu Adetunji, Aje Ogungunniso 1, who died Sunday morning.

Oyetola in a statement released by his Chief Press Secretary, Ismail Omipidan, also offered condolences to the royal family, Olubadan-in-Council and all Ibadan indigenes at home and abroad.

He said the demise of the first class traditional ruler which came on the heels of the passage of Soun of Ogbomoso, is another colossal loss to Yorubaland, noting that Olubadan’s death had left a deep void that would be difficult to fill.

The governor described the late monarch as a respected royal father, exemplary and compassionate leader who showed strong concern and commitment to the welfare of his subjects and the development of Ibadan within the short period of his reign.

“On behalf of the Government and people of Osun, I commiserate with Governor Seyi Makinde, government and people of Oyo State over the transition of Olubadan of Ibadan, Oba Saliu Akanmu Adetunji Aje Ogungunniso. I also condole the royal family, Olubadan-in-Council and all Ibadan indigenes at home and abroad as well as the Oyo State Traditional Council.

“The late Oba Saliu Akanmu was a respected royal father, exemplary and compassionate leader who demonstrated strong concern and commitment to the welfare of his subjects and the development of Ibadan within the short period of his reign. He will be remembered for his fatherly roles and wise counsel,” the statement reads in part.

Governor Oyetola prayed to Allah to forgive the late traditional ruler and grant his immediate family, Governor Seyi Makinde and the people of Ibadan the fortitude to bear his loss.
