Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Sunday presented a staff of office which officially inaugurated the new Oniru of Iruland, Oba Abdul-Wasiu Omogbolahan Lawal, the Abisogun II, as the 15th Oniru of Iruland.

The new Oniru who was the state Commissioner for Agriculture was announced as the next Oniru by the state government after series of consultations and preparations.

While making the presentation which was the first for him as the state governor, Sanwo-Olu said the event heralded an era of prosperity in the kingdom, while describing the new monarch as a seasoned technocrat, urged residents and Lawal’s opponents to rally behind the new king to move the city forward.

“There is no doubt that the future of Iru Kingdom will continue to be bright and promising, and the ascension of His Royal Majesty, Oba Lawal, marks the start of the next phase of the journey into that future.” Sanwo-Olu said.

The governor also added:”Given the pedigree of His Royal Majesty, I have no doubt that his reign will be a progressive one.

”Your Royal Highness, I pledge the full support of the State Government toward the realization of your vision for Iru Kingdom.

”It is heartwarming to see how the Kingdom has grown in leaps and bounds in the last few decades, rising to become one of the economic nerve-centres of Lagos State.

”Our administration will continue to accord this part of the state, like all others, the attention you deserve, in terms of infrastructure, economic empowerment, human capital development, and security,” he said.

In his responce, the new Oniru of Iruland assured his subjects that his reign will facilitate more economic development for Iruland and environs, with the dreams of birthing a community to rival cities like the New York.

”I consider it a divine call to succeed the legendary Oba Abiodun Idowu Oniru, who reigned for 25 years. I pray to Olodumare to grant him, and the souls of all my departed forebears’ eternal rest.

”Iruland is very central to the commerce and economy of development Lagos State. I want to assure all and sundry that Iruland will continue to accommodate business development on all fronts, and remain home for all tribes, and races.

”Iruland will continue to align with the vision of our forebears for a cosmopolitan, thriving, and prosperous Lagos.

“Our vision is that Iruland will in no distant future rival the likes of greater New York City, in the United States of America,” Lawal said.

The Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Dr Wale Ahmed, had earlier presented the monarch to the governor, noting that the choice of Lawal was well received by kingmakers and citizens of the area.

Chairman of the Lagos State Council of Obas and Chiefs, the Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu, said Lawal’s installation was done in fulfillment of the wishes of the kingdom’s founding fathers.

Published

on

The Apc lagos state chapter have have called on security agency to check mate and bring to book the unscruptilous activities of the pdp governorship candidate Mr Adediran Olajide popularly know as jandor on the citizen of lagos state as he campaigned across the state .

The spokeman of Apc , hon seye oladejo in a press release made avsilable to gidinews .com ststed that :

Our attention has been drawn to the reign of terror unleashed on innocent and law abiding citizens of Lagos state by the gubernatorial candidate of the PDP in the forthcoming national elections, Jide Adediran, otherwise known as Jandor in the course of his campaign in Surulere Local Government Council of the state.
The incident left in its wake several maimed victims and three people reportedly sent to their untimely death.
We condemn in strong terms the unwarranted and unprovoked resort to violence on the citizens of the state in the name of electioneering campaign.
Lagos cherishes it’s enviable status as the safest state in the country which has been as a result of long running and painstaking investment in security through the provision of the wherewithal and incentives for security agencies.
We view this attack as a ploy to instill fear in the hearts of voters as we count down to the elections.
It’s pathetic to note that a candidate seeking to govern the state could be seen actively promoting anarchy and violence to disrupt the peace of the citizens.
It will be recalled that the suspect has been busy in the past days crying wolves in the media as he perfected his evil plans which manifested at his rally.
While we can imagine the untold misery and frustration that his faltering campaign might have visited on him, it ought not to result in the thirst for the blood potential voters.
We hereby call on the law enforcement agencies to thoroughly investigate the incident , bring the culprits to book and beef security across the state with the obvious desperation of the opposition PDP in order to forestall a reoccurrence.
We urge Lagosians to remain calm and law abiding as the state government remains irrevocably committed to its onerous duty of ensuring the safety of lives and properties of all and sundry.
