Just in: Ikare-Akoko gets new Owa-Ale

The Ondo state Executive  Council has approved the selection of Prince Adeleke Adegbite-Adedoyin as the new Owa-Ale of Ikare Akoko in Akoko North East local government area.

Briefing newsmen on the outcome of the State Executive Council meeting held in Akure and presided over by Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, the State Commissioner for Information, Donald Ojogo and his counterpart from the ministry of Local Government and Chieftaincy matters, Mrs Lola Fagbemi said the selection process of Prince Adeleke Adedoyin was ratified in line with Ikare tradition and law of the state.

Mrs Fagbemi noted that the only ruling House of Owa-Ale unanimously presented Prince Adeleke to the kingmaker for government’s approval.

Oba Adeleke Adedoyin, a United Kingdom trained legal practitioner, was born over forty years ago and he is the son of the immediate past Owa-Ale, late Oba Kolapo Adegbite-Adedoyin who joined his ancestors in September last year.

When crowned, Prince Adeleke Adegbite-Adedoyin will be the 18th Owa-Ale of Ikare-akoko.

Other details of the meeting of the state Executive Council especially on the proposed anti-open grazing law will be brought shortly.
