Senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District, Senator Smart Adeyemi has commiserated with the entire Owe Kingdom, the Obaro-in-Council, Council of Chiefs in Owe-Land, the Ilemila Royal Family and the immediate family of late Obadofin of Kabba, Oba Mike Yusuf Oladele over the demise of the monarch.
Senator Adeyemi who was away in Minna, Niger State, when he heard the news described it as a rude shock.
“It is sad that death took away the humane and humble monarch away from us at this critical time when his advise is much needed to guide us.
“The late Obadofin of Owe Land was a calm and loving monarch who believed solely in peaceful coexistence, community growth and development of his people.
“No doubt the royal father will be greatly missed by Owe people and the neighbouring communities, especially for the massive roles he played during the transition to glory of the late Obaro of Kabba,” he said.
The Senator expressed his sincere condolences to Obaro of Kabba, HRM Oba Dele Owoniyi, chairman Okun Traditional Council; the immediate family, most especially, the Olori and the children of Obadofin.
“The King exemplified selfless service to his country home and his loss will be felt by so many.
“The late Obadofin Owe Land, Oba Mike Yusuf Oladele served his people with pride and honor. For that he will be greatly missed. May God grant him eternal rest in His abode as joined his ancestors.”
