Adeleke appoints another Owa of Igbajo

Osun Governor Ademola Adeleke has approved the appointment of Dr Ademola Makinde as another Owa of Igbajo. 

The Nation recalled that Oba Famodun was appointed by the previous administration after he was nominated by kingmakers of the town. 

However, Adeleke faulted his selection and used warrant chiefs to select the new king on Friday. 

But Oba Famodun insisted he remains the Owa of Igbajo and will continue to reign till court of law says otherwise. 

Adeleke, on Monday morning in a statement through his Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, Kolapo Alimi, noted that the appointment of the new Owa was reached at the Executive Meeting at the Exco Chambers in line with due process, chieftaincy law and tradition. 

“Governor Ademola Adeleke at the Executive Meeting congratulated the new Owa of Igbajo and tasked him to heal the wounds of the selection process by ensuring inclusive traditional governance.

“I urge him to embark on reconciliation and restore the dignity and integrity of the traditional institution,” he said.
