Prince Olugbenga Ojo has been chosen by the Ondo State Executive Council to become the next oba of Iralepo Isinkan in the state’s Akure South Local Government area.
The consent is stated in a letter that Princess Oladunni Odu, the secretary to the Ondo State government, signed on Friday in Akure.
The inhabitants of Isinkan, however, have praised Ojo’s selection as the new traditional leader of the town, referring to it as “a round peg in a round whole.”
In an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria shortly after the approval, Prince Durojaye Ariyo, the Olori Omo Owa of Isinkan, described the approval of Ojo by the state government as “unprecedented” .
Ariyo said that the development was made possible through the understanding and good relationship among the people of the town.
He commended the state executive council for standing with justice.
NAN reports that Ojo, a lawyer, is the 38th Iralepo of Isinkan.
