Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, has said that traditional rulers contributed a lot to the peace and development of the state; hence, his administration holds them in high esteem.

The governor spoke, at the weekend, in Ipee, Oyun Local Council, where he attended the 20th coronation and 60th birthday anniversaries of the Onipe, Oba Muftau Adebayo Lawal, Titiloye III.

AbdulRazaq commended the monarch for keeping Ipee peaceful and progressive, while congratulating him for his successes on the throne.

He said: “We are proud of you, especially the way you kept this kingdom together for the past 20 years. With your career, starting from the Kwara State Polytechnic to Zamfara, back to your throne here, you have left a good record. The government is happy with you.”

On his part, the monarch commended the governor for elevating the Onipe stool and renovating primary and secondary schools, among other projects, in the state.

National President of Ipee Progressive Union (IPU), Moshood Anifowose, said “Ipee has continued to witness peace and development under the monarch,” praying God to strengthen him more and bless his reign with monumental achievements.
