Oba Oyewumi Made Lasting Impact On His Domain, Says Makinde


Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde said the late Oba Jimoh Oyewumi Ajagungbade III, the Soun of Ogbomosoland, made lasting impact on his domain and indelible marks on Oyo State and humanity.

Makinde, in a condolence message issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Taiwo Adisa, on Sunday in Ibadan, described the death of the first class Oba as a huge loss to Ogbomoso Kingdom, Oyo State and humanity in general.

The governor described him as a quintessential Oba, a man of peace and a passionate supporter of development, who used his wealth of experience to develop Ogbomosoland over the past decades.

He expressed his condolences to the Oba’s immediate family, people of Ogbomoso and the Oyo State Council of Obas.

He said: “I received the news of the passage unto glory of our father, His Imperial Majesty, Oba Jimoh Oladunni Oyewumi Ajagungbade III, the Soun of Ogbomosoland, with shock.

“Though, Kabiyesi lived up to the age of 95, his death at this time is still a huge loss to the state and the traditional institution, because he has created a vacuum, not only in Ogbomosoland, but also in the entire state and the nation.

“In Kabiyesi, we had a quintessential monarch, who loved and worked for peace and development.

“In his years on the throne of his forebears, Oba Oyewumi made a lasting impact on Ogbomosoland and by extension Oyo State.

“On behalf of the people and Government of Oyo State, I hereby express our heart-felt condolences to the immediate family of the departed monarch and the people of Ogbomosoland.

“I also commiserate with the Oyo State Council Obas, which has lost a prominent member in Oba Oyewumi.

“It is my prayer that God grants Kabiyesi Aljanah Firdaus and also grant everyone the fortitude to bear this loss.”
