Your wisdom and support are invaluable, and I promise to heed your guidance as I embark on this journey,” he said.
In addition, the Omola admonished the subjects to work with him for the progress and development of the kingdom to uplift it, its heritage and culture while wooing developments of the kingdom and sustaining its heritage.
“Once again, I am profoundly thankful for this opportunity to serve as your Omola. With your support and the blessings of the Almighty, I am confident that we will lead Odomola to new heights. Thank you, and may God bless our beloved kingdom,” the monarch added.
In attendance were traditional rulers, people of class and great personalities in the society one of whom was the representative of Deputy Governor of Lagos State, Dr. Kadir Hamzat.
Hon. Ismail Monsuru Akinloye, the Chairman of Eredo LCDA and the chief host of the occasion was also in attendance. He delivered the opening speech, expressing gratitude to all present for honouring Oba Adebowale.
One of the royal fathers of the day, HRM Oba Babatunde Ogunlaja, the Aladeshonyin of Odo Noforija Kingdom, shared words of wisdom and blessed the new Omola.
Obama Ogunlaja admonished the newly coronated king to uphold the heritage of the kingdom and ensure its continuum and preservation in the scheme of things.
“I want to take a moment to remind HRM Oba Adeshina Sulaimon Adebowale of the sacred responsibilities that come with this esteemed title. You are now the custodian of our culture, our heritage, and the welfare of our people. Your reign must be characterized by wisdom, justice, and unwavering dedication to the betterment of Odomola,” he said.
