By Adeniyi Olugbemi
To fill the vacuum created with the demise of Oba Bolarinwa Adeniyi, (Iyeru Okin 1), the first coronated king of Ijaka Oke, Yewa North Local Government Area of Ogun state, the boisterous town is in frenzy mood planning for the coronation of Oba (Rotarian) Kayode Joseph Ogungbohun, (Osolo 1), as the Agbaigba of Ijaka Oke, the new traditional ruler of Ijaka Oke.
Oba Kayode Ogungbohun official installation and presentation of Staff of Office, slated for February 17, 2024, at Agbaigba Community High School, Ijaka Oke, in Yewa North Local Government of Ogun state, will signal a new dawn that would herald sustainable development in the area.
Notable personalities expected to grace the occassion are Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun state, Senator Solomon Olamilekan Adeola. The Olu of Ilaro and Paramount Ruler of Yewaland, HRM Oba Kehinde Olugbenle, will be the Royal Father of the Day and former Governor, Aremo Segun Osoba, as Father of the Day.
Chairman of the Occassion is Dr Isiaq Salako, Minister of State, Environment, while Chief (Mrs) Yemisi Abbas and Chief Ibrahim Dende , will serve as Mother of the Day and Chief Host respectively. The event will be attended by array of personalities across the country and those from the diaspora.
Meanwhile, royal fathers and socio-cultural organisations across Ketuland have been upbeat about the coronation of the second Agbaigba of Ijaka-Oke. Those who spoke on the event showed strong optimism that the ascension of Oba Kayode Ogungbohun, will not only strengthen the institution of Obaship in Ketuland but also boost developmental strides in the entire area.
A member of the Ketu Advancement Forum, KAF, a group that rallies Ketu stakeholders for socio-economic development, Gbenga Fabuyi, says the new monarch is expected to play active roles in the affairs of Ketu Obas and all activities geared towards the development of Ketuland.
“We need the entire Ijakaland to be firmly integrated into the affairs of Ketuland. There is no doubt that the new Agbaigba will deploy his enormous wealth of experience and energy into achieving this, especially because his predecessor on the throne had laid a good foundation for this to happen.
“It is a delight that the coronation of Oba Osolo 1, is coming at the verge of the simultaneous completion of the World Bank Rural Electrification Project in Ijaka – Oke and 52 other towns and communities in Yewa North by the State Government. This represents a good omen of more good things to follow the enthronement of Kabiyesi.”
Fabuyi further tasked the monarch to engender innovations that would enhance the conducive environment in the community and enjoin him to use his position to complement the state government’s effort by attracting more development to the town and it environs, to further raise the status of the state as food basket of the nation.
“I commend the people of Ijaka Oke for their overwhelming support for the emergence of the new monarch. Their cooperation as sons and daughters of the town with the new monarch will definitely see the town recording remarkable achievements in no distant time.
“I urge the new monarch to be accessible, receptive and responsive to the yearnings of his subjects as occassion demands. He should carry everyone along in the affairs of the community, without any form of discrimination,” Fabuyi said.
