The Postmaster-General of the Federation and Chief Executive Officer of the Nigeria Postal Services, Dr. Ismail Adebayo Adewusi, yesterday, described the late Soun of Ogbomoso, Oba Jimoh Oladunni Oyewumi, as an agent of development and a bridge-builder who rallied all for the purpose of unity and peace of the country.

In a statement he personally signed, Adewusi said the monarch’s reign recorded monumental progress both in his domain, Ogbomoso and Oyo State in general.

HOWEVER, an illustrious son of the town and Chief Executive Officer of Tulcan Energy, Tayo Adiatu, described the late Soun as an extraordinary leader, a humanitarian and a true patriot, who loved his country and sacrificed much for her unity.

ALSO, daughter of the former governor of the state, Otunba Alao-Akala, Mrs. Olamide Alabi, has described the late traditional ruler as a well revered and well-loved king.

IN the same vein, Bishop Francis Wale Oke, the President of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), yesterday, described the late Soun of Ogbomoso as a foremost traditional ruler who enhanced the growth of the ancient town on all fronts.

In his condolence message to the people of Ogbomoso and the Oyo State, Bishop Oke, who is also the President of The Sword of the Spirit Ministries, said the royal father lived a worthy life of service.
