In a release signed by his media aide, Hon. Olaide Akínrẹ̀mí described Ikú Bàbá Yeye as a traditional enigma and a custodian of Yoruba heritage, one whose place in our history is clearly defined.
“It is a great privilege for any King to mark 50 years on the throne of his forefathers, and I rejoice with our father, the Aláàfin for God’s grace on his life to celebrate this great feat”, Hon. Akínrẹ̀mí said.
Hon. Jagaban went further to state that the Aláàfin himself is an institution and a highly respected monarch not only around Yorubaland but across our country for his statesman contributions over the decades to both state and national developments.
“Ọ̀yọ́ state is blessed to have Aláàfin, and I can only pray that God Almighty preserves him for many more years, so we can continue to benefit from his immense wisdom and guidance”, Hon. Olaide Akínrẹ̀mí concluded.
