The Ondo State Executive Council has, on Monday 25th of October 2021, approved and upheld the selection of two traditional rulers in the state.
This was contained in a press statement by the Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Donald Ojogo which was made available to newsmen.
The two new selected monarchs are Prince Samuel Bayode Agboola, whose selection was approved as the new Onirun of Irun-Akoko in Akoko Northwest Local Government Area of the state and Prince Nelson Gbadega Akintolaye as the Akamuja of Igburowo in Odigbo Local Government Area.
The Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Donald Ojogo in the statement announced that the kingmakers of Irun selected Prince Agboola and presented him to the government for approval.
He added that the Council deliberated and concluded that the method adopted in selecting the Onirun and Akamuja were in accord with the prerequisites of extant Laws.
“Both had earlier been cleared as having no issues before the State Executive Council considered their approval.”
He said: “The council met today and deliberated on some far-reaching decisions. As part of the commitment of this administration to respect traditional institutions and allow towns and villages to select traditional heads for themselves, the Council today approved the appointment of two traditional heads as stated earlier.”
Ojogo added that the selections were pondered upon and the council, extremely, focused on the procedure adopted in their preference and found that it was in conformity with the laid down Laws. The Council has, therefore, graciously approved their selection as done by the kingmakers
