President Buhari Mourns Olubadan, Says We've Lost a Compassionate Leader

The President, Muhammadu Buhari has said the late Olubadan of Ibadan, Oba Saliu Adetunji, was a visionary and compassionate leader.

Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, disclosed in a statement on Sunday.

The President through the statement said this while extending his heartfelt condolences to the government and people of Oyo State, the Royal family, the Olubadan-in-council, and the people of Ibadan on the passing of the monarch who died at the age of 93.

According to the statement, “The President affirms that the late Kabiyesi was a visionary and compassionate leader, who used the spheres of his influence as a respected traditional ruler and a lover of the creative industry to advance the progress of his people, encouraging and motivating them to give their best in their vocation and to the nation.

“While his demise understandably leaves a huge void to fill, the President urges the people of Ibadan and Nigerians from different walks of life to honor the eternal memory of the deceased by imbibing the virtues he cherished so much: generosity, peace, tolerance, and devotion to unity.

“As the funeral rites of the 41st Olubadan of Ibadanland get underway in Ibadan, the President trusts that the process of selecting his successor will be guided by wisdom, understanding, and good judgment that exemplified the life he lived.

“President Buhari prays God to grant the soul of Oba Adetunji eternal rest and comfort the family, friends, associates, and subjects he left behind.”
