The Chairman of the Nigerian Communications Commission, NCC, Professor Adeolu Akande and his wife have been installed as the new Fimogboye and Yeye Fimogboye of Igboholand.
Though the installation would be conducted on a date to be decided on as the Otu-born governorship hopeful was unavoidably absent at the occasion, the decision to confer the chieftaincy title on the couple was announced by the Alepeta of Igboholand, Oba Joel Olalere Olawuwo Alasorogan, last Saturday during the fund-raising ceremony for the construction of a new palace for the town.
The monarch described Akande as a “stellar son of Oke-Ogun and a colossal of exceptional degree in Oyo State.”
He also indicated that he and his wife were conferred the title to commemorate the two year coronation anniversary of the Alepata of Igboholand, Oba Joel Olalere Olawuwo.
“We thank you for all you do in Oke-Ogun where you hail from, Oyo State and Nigeria at large,” the Monarch added.
