LATE DEJI OF AKURE, OBA ADEBIYI ADESIDA
LATE DEJI OF AKURE, OBA ADEBIYI ADESIDA

The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar, has described the late Deji of Akure, Oba Adebiyi Adesida, as an extremely detribalised Nigerian, whose love for peaceful co-existence was unparalleled.

The Sultan said this in a message of condolence to the government and people of Ondo State over the death of the monarch.

In the message signed by the Secretary of the Sokoto Sultanate Council, Alhaji Attahiru Hussaini, the Sultan also described the demise of the late Deji as a great loss not only to his immediate family or Ondo State, but to the entire country.

He appealed to his family, government and the entire Nigerians to bear the irreparable loss.

The sultan described the late traditional ruler as a very active member of the National Council of Traditional Rulers of Nigeria (NCTRN).

Abubakar recalled the invaluable contributions of the late Deji of Akure during the recent 6th General Assembly of the council, which held in Sokoto.

The statement also quoted the Sultan as extolling the sterling qualities of the deceased towards ensuring sustainable peace and unity of the nation.

Before his demise, the deceased was the paramount ruler of Akure and the Chairman of the Ondo State Council of Obas. (NAN)
