Abiodun commiserates with Owu kingdom over Dosunmu’s death
Describes late monarch’s reign as peaceful
Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, has commiserated with the people of Owu kingdom over the demise of their monarch, Oba (Dr.) Adebooyega Dosunmu, whose reign he described as a peaceful one.
Abiodun, who spoke during a condolence visit to Olowu’s palace, described the people of the kingdom as enterprising and fearless people.
He declared that his administration would continue to promote the rich culture and traditions of the people of Ogun, assuring that the administration would stand by the people of Owu during the period of mourning.
Abiodun, however, said that contributions of the late monarch to drama, culture, community development and the media would not only be missed by the people of Owu kingdom, but by the state and the country at large.
“Oba Dosunmu will be fondly missed. I remember that he was one of the architects of the Village Headmaster, we all grew with and were stuck to that programme
“He was a renowned broadcaster for many years and his reign was a very successful one. So, we are going to miss him,” the governor said.
Earlier in his remarks, the Otun of Owu kingdom, Chief Doja Adewolu, while acknowledging the contribution of the governor towards a better state, also applauded him for joining them in their moment of grief.
