Iseyin Community to Confer Aare Atunluto and Yeye Aare Atunluto Title on Makinde, Wife

As a show of appreciation to the governor of Oyo state, Engineer ‘Seyi Makinde, the Iseyin community has decided to confer on the governor and his wife the titles of Aare Atunluto and Yeye Aare Atunluto of Iseyinland.

A statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Taiwo Adisa, indicated that Iseyin residents led by His Royal Majesty, the Aseyin of Iseyin, Oba Dr. Abdul-Ganiyy Salaudeen, and well-meaning indigenes of the town, paid a solidarity visit to the governor at the Government Secretariat, Agodi, Ibadan.

Speaking on behalf of the community, a former lawmaker, Senator Gbenga Babalola appreciated the governor, saying that the people of Iseyin could not but identify themselves with Makinde, who he described as an uncommon governor, a promise keeper.

“We cannot but identify ourselves with you. When you were seeking election, we were skeptical because we have always been inundated with promises that were never kept. But since you became governor, you have shown fairness. You have inculcated fairness in governance,” he said.

Meanwhile, Governor ‘Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, said that his administration will continue to use the state’s commonwealth for the good of the people in all the nooks and crannies of the state.
