Hon. Olayinka Segelu, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has congratulated His Imperial Majesty, Oba (Dr) Olalekan Ishola Mohood Balogun ‘The Okunmade Alli-Iwo II’ on his installation as the 42nd Olubadan of Ibadanland.
A few days before his coronation, the PDP stalwart traveled to Nigeria from his base in Germany to pay tribute to the new monarch and seek his royal and fatherly blessing for his 2023 aspiration. He prayed to God to grant him the necessary grace, wisdom, and understanding to lead the people correctly.
In the statement, Hon. Segelu expressed optimism that the next Olubadan’s rule will usher in a new era of peace and progress in Ibadanland, Oyo State, and Nigeria as a whole.
“I congratulate His Imperial Majesty Oba Dr. Senator Olalekan Ishola Mohood Balogun (The Okunmade Alli-Iwo II) on his enthronement as the 42nd Olubadan of Ibadanland. I have no doubt in my mind that the new monarch, an erstwhile Distinguished Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, who I have tremendous respect for and see as my father, will use his reign as Olubadan of Ibadanland to promote cultural and traditional values in Ibadan and its environs. I am hundred percent sure that his reign will entrench peaceful co-existence, unity and oneness among the people of Ibadanland.”
Hon. Olayinka Segelu.
“I wish you a peaceful and successful reign. May we experience unequaled development and tranquility during your reign,” Hon. Olayinka added.
Segelu, a 2015 House of Representatives candidate in the Akinyele/Lagelu Federal Constituency who has been meeting with leaders across the Constituency for 2023 consultation, praised the Oyo State Governor, Engr Seyi Makinde, for his good judgment and rare wisdom in handling issues that would have caused controversy and crisis if the Olubadan stool had become vacant.
“Governor Makinde’s style of leadership is not just unique but also worthy of emulation. His display of rare wisdom in preventing crises and promoting cultural values is highly commendable. I pray for more wisdom for the Governor as he continues to pilot the affairs of the state to take us to the Promised Land.”
