New Osun monarch gets staff of office

The new Alapomu of Apomu, Osun State, Oba Adenekan Afolabi, on Friday received his  staff of office and instrument of appointment from Governor Adegboyega Oyetola.

Oba Afolabi was crowned by  the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi.

Oyetola, who was represented by the Special Adviser to the Governor on Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Razaq Adeosun,  described the royal father as a round peg in a round hole.

Kafayat, wife of the governor; the  Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi; Oloffa of Offa, Oba Muftau Gbadamonsi, Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrosheed Akanbi, were among the monarchs at the event.

Oba Ogunwusi described Apomu as a very important part of Yorubaland with Ile-Ife as its source.

He said,  “This town remains a very important part of  the Oduduwa’s territory, not only because  it’s a direct creation of Ife-Ife but also for the strategic roles Apomu  played in the past.

Oba  Afolabi said he was a direct descendant of the Giesi Ruling House of Ile-Ife.

He said, “Some people might wonder about my style of dressing here today, it is deliberate to show my roots as my father came from Ile-Ife to settle down in Apomu many centuries ago.”
