Read the statement in full:
It was like yesterday and now, it’s 50 years. His Imperial Majesty, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi ascended the throne of his father’s.
I join other erudite personalities in celebrating the kabiyesi. During your reign that has spanned half a century, we have witnessed unprecedented growth, not only In Oyo Town but in the whole of the state.
When other royal fathers have become subject of tabloid posts and floundering standards, you have kept the Institution in such impeccable manner. We are proud that you are our royal father!
While I am not in the position to bless the King, I pray that you will live long to rule us all in might, good health and majesty.
God bless the Ikú bàbà yeye.
