The Ijebu princess, who was the former Personal Assistant to the late Secretary to the Lagos State Government during the Babatunde Fashola administration, is also a director of Hope Alive Initiative Poverty Alleviation Advocacy that is powered by the House of Odua inspired by the Ooni.
The monarch had, on 20th October, tied the knot with his fifth wife, Princess Ronke Ademiluyi, days after marrying his fourth, Princess Ashley Adegoke.
In another report, the former President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo on Thursday encouraged residents of Owu Kingdom in Ogun state to support the new ruler of the old town.
Following the Coronation of the new Monarch, Obasanjo, the Balogun of Owu Kingdom, made supplication to the Almighty saying that he doesn’t want to witness a new Olowu of Owu in Abeokuta, during the remaining years of his life; indicating his wish of longevity for the new ruler.
Soon after the induction of a 300-man planning committee ahead of the coronation procession of the emerging Olowu of Owu, Oba Saka Matemilola, Pa Obasanjo made the statement.
Pa Obasanjo noted that the supplications he made were centered on him being an elderly person to the new ruler and would want to see another Olowu of Owu which implied the death of the new monarch.
