Ogun: Abiodun presents staff of office to 14th Olowu, tasks him on development of domain

Ogun State governor, Dapo Abiodun, on Saturday, presented the instrument of office to the 14th Olowu of Owu, Oba (Prof.) Saka Matemilola, with a charge to see his installation as a call to service towards the development of Owu Kingdom and the state in general.

Speaking at the coronation and the 23rd Edition of Owu Day Celebration held at the Oba Adeleye Park, Sokori, Abeokuta, equally charged the new monarch to join hands towards achieving its vision of building the future of the state, especially now when his administration has charted a new economy blueprint for the state.

The governor described Owu people as intelligent, resourceful and highly cerebral who have evolved over the years to become a force not only in Yorubaland, but the entire nation.

He noted that the unbroken bond between the Owu people must be recognized, especially after Orile Owu was devastated in the 1820s during the Yoruba inter-tribal wars.

Abiodun pointed out that the long history of the Owu people’s triumph over adversity, resilience in the face of opposition and crass demonstration has made them as one, united, indivisible and proud entity.

“Indeed, wherever we find the Owu people, you see them excelling. Whether in Osun, their primordial ancestral homestead, through Kwara, Oyo, Lagos, Ogun and even in Ondo states. One is always faced with a unique species of mankind – indomitable, valiant, loyal, strong-willed, tenacious, highly outspoken, principled and most resourceful”, the governor noted.

The governor described the new Olowu as a man of honour and integrity whose vast experience and intellectual prowess would bring in immense growth to the kingdom.

He implored sons and daughters of the kingdom to support the traditional ruler in his developmental agenda to take the town to greater heights.

While assuring equal treatment of all parts of the state in project execution, Governor Abiodun also assured that his administration remained committed towards the successful implementation of its ISEYA Agenda, charging the people of Owu Kingdom to discharge their civic responsibilities peacefully as the 2023 election is fast approaching.

He commended those who contested for the stool with the new monarch for being orderly and the Planning Committee of the Odun Omo Olowu and other stakeholders who contributed to the success of the annual festival, maintaining that the large turn out of Owu indigenes at the coronation event was a confirmation to the acceptability of the new Olowu.

In his remarks, the chairman, Abeokuta North Local Government Area, Abdulsam Ayorinde, expressed optimism that the crowning of Oba Matemilola, would usher in a new era of development in Owuland and its environs, urging the indigenes to rally round the traditional ruler for the peace and development of the town.

The Balogun of Owu and former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, represented by the Otun of Owu, Chief Doja Adewolu, described the new monarch as a man of wisdom, knowledge and good character who rose to the top of his career, expressing the hope that he would steer the ship of the town to greater height.

In his acceptance speech, Oba Matemilola assured all sons and daughters of Owu kingdom that he would lead the way and facilitate the growth of the kingdom, calling on groups, religious leaders and individuals in the kingdom to play their part with trust, dedication and unity.

According to Oba Matemilola, the Olowu stool is unique and comes with great responsibilities, promising to live up to the virtues, principles and values as exemplified by his predecessors.

The event was attended by dignitaries from all walks of life including former governors, Olusegun Osoba, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, top government functionaries, traditional rulers including the Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Ogunwusi, the Obong of Calabar, Olu of Warri, the Alake of Egbaland , Oba Adedotun Aremu Gbadebo and other traditional rulers.

Somehow, God is helping Peter Obi as he gradually moves nearer to Aso Rock in 2023- Charles Novia

“Many people might not understand what the breaking news today from the Central Bank of Nigeria is all about or the implications for the 2023 elections. Only the discerning will get it”

“According to the CBN, over 3 Trillion Naira is unbanked in Nigeria presently. That means many people have been hoarding the naira for the past six years in their homes and holes and water tanks and wherever. The Black Marketeers, the Politicians and the kidnappers…the traders and the drug merchants… name it. All sorts of hoarding of the naira over the years”

“What the CBN has done by announcing that new naira notes will come into circulation with new designs by December 15th, will shake the politicians especially. Those dishonest politicians who are planning to rig the 2023 elections with hoardings of naira notes are going to weep, wail and gnash their teeth from today”

“From December 15th, it would be too late for them to find billions of naira to execute vote buying under the new naira regime. To get such monies, they would have to go yo the banks and the banks would never give huge sums in a fell swoop in two months juxtaposed with the hoarding these criminals have been carrying out in six years”

“The CBN has effectively knocked the political class out today and if there was a 60% chance from INEC that the BVAS would eliminate rigging in 2023, the CBN has just added another 20% to it”

“The PDP and APC will be mostly affected”

“The Man who doesn’t give shishi and wasn’t planning on spending shishi to win his votes will not be affected”

“It’s a bigger win for him today than yesterday”
