Alake: Govt Receives Nomination Letter


A week after the announcement of Prince Adedotun Gbadebo as Oba-elect by Egba kingmakers, the Ogun State government has disclosed that it had received the nomination letter of the new king.

A week after the announcement of Prince Adedotun Gbadebo as Oba-elect by Egba kingmakers, the Ogun State government has disclosed that it had received the nomination letter of the new king.

Deputy Governor, Alhaja Salmot Badru whose office oversees chieftaincy matters in the state, made the disclosure while fielding questions at the state executive chamber Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta.

She said she received the letter on Monday but until Wednesday, the letter remained a subject of controversy, since no one was able to say categorically if the government had received the letter from Secretary of the Abeokuta South Local Government, who equally kept mute on the matter.

“Three days ago, I received a letter intimating the Deputy Governor that a candidate has emerged for the Alake’s vacant stool.”
According to her, based on the advice by the Ministry of Justice, government must wait for 21 days before taking any further step.

The delay on the part of the government to make its position known, had fueled speculations that he was not a popular candidate.
Since then, Laarun Ruling House where the new monarch emerged had condemned the choice and called on the state to reverse the kingmakers decision.

Many thanks to the people who worked hard in the past and those who are still making efforts to keep the institution.

The labour is obviouly worth it. We are proud of you all.

A lot still to be done, with the motivation of the champions of this course, others will follow as well to maintain the institution

May God continue to keep the edifice for development of future generations to the glory of God and the benefits of our fatherland.
