President Buhari mourns Oba Adejana of Iworoko-Ekiti


President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with the family of the late traditional ruler of Iworoko-Ekiti, Oba Oluwafemi Adejana, on the monarch’s transition.

The President also commiserated with the Ekiti State Government and the people of Iworoko-Ekiti on the demise of the royal father.

Buhari, in a statement by the Special Adviser on Media and publicity, Femi Adesina, said “Coming barely a week after the tragic truck accident in a market in his town, which claimed many lives and destroyed several property, Oba Adejana’s passing is particularly sad and regrettable.”

The President, however, urged the community to take solace in the fact that the octogenarian traditional ruler lived a long and rewarding life as he ensured peace and development in his domain.

As the people of Iworoko-Ekiti mourn their revered late Oba, President Buhari prayed Almighty God to console them and grant the soul of the departed peaceful rest.
