What He Said:

“First and foremost, let me express my profound gratitude to God Almighty for counting me worthy over my appointment as the Chairman of Ekiti State Council of Traditional Rulers. I give all the thanks and adoration to the Almighty for this rare opportunity.”

“Let me also specially thank the Governor of Ekiti State, His Excellency, Dr. John Kayode Fayemi (CON) for his rare wisdom for approving my appointment as the Chairman of the Council of Traditional Rulers in our dear state. I am immensely grateful to him for giving me this opportunity to serve the council at this time when our dear state is witnessing an unprecedented growth and development under the administration of our Omoluabi Governor despite the numerous economic challenges being witnessed across the country.”

“The achievements of His Excellency are no doubt indelible and we as custodian of our cultural values, beliefs and heritage will continue to provide necessary support that will further enhance peace and unity, creating an enabling environment for his government to thrive. “

“I also want to sincerely appreciate all the Kabiyesis and Ori-Ades, the custodian of our cultural values, beliefs and heritage for the overwhelming congratulatory messages, calls and prayers since the news of my appointment as Chairman of the Council broke. It reflects the fact that we are all one; one Ekiti and a people closely knitted together in unity and love.” 

“I want to at this juncture thank my immediate predecessor, the Alawe of Ilawe, His Royal Majesty, Oba Adebanji Ajibade Alabi, Afuntade I, for the role he played while holding this same office. With wisdom, he managed and coordinated our affairs effectively as the Chairman during his tenure and I want to assure the good people of Ekiti that my leadership will build upon his successes in the pursuit of peace, progress and tranquillity across our dear State. “

“We all know that the call to serve comes with huge challenges. However, I believe that God has given us the ability to solve and proffer solutions to all problems and with the support of all the brilliant Kabiyesis, Ori Ades, and the great people  of Ekiti at home and in the Diaspora, we will succeed. This wisdom, we shall also apply to address and tackle the heinous challenges of insecurity in our land and in Nigeria as a whole. We shall work assiduously with other traditional rulers in Yoruba land, and across Nigeria to reduce the challenges of insecurity particularly as it has affected food security in our various communities. “

“Before I end this press conference, let me sincerely thank Her Excellency, the amiable wife of Ekiti State Governor, Erelu Bisi Fayemi for her consistent support since my enthronment as the Onisan of Isan Kingdom. May God continue to uphold her and her family.”
