President Buhari in a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity Femi Adesina, on Sunday afternoon, condoled with the family of His Royal Highness, the Soun of Ogbomoso land, Oba Oladunni Oyewumi, Ajagungbade III, CFR, on his death.
“The President commiserates with the Government and people of Oyo State and especially the indigenes of Ogbomosoland on the demise of the frontline traditional ruler whose reign of 48 years reinforced the town as a land of peace, accommodating and a bastion of history and tradition.
“President Buhari also joins the Oyo State Council of Obas in mourning the First Class Traditional ruler, who will forever be remembered for his counsel and commitment to the unity and harmony within their ranks,” the statement reads in part.
Buhari however, urged the sons and daughters of Ogbomoso land to be consoled with the fact that Oba Oyewumi accentuated his reign with the development and progress of the community through enduring peace and extension of hands of fellowship to peoples of other communities.https://newspremises.com.ng/buhari-reacts-to-death-of-soun-of-ogbomoso/
