Oyo State Governor Seyi Makinde, on Thursday paid a condolence visit to the family of the late Aseyin of Iseyin, Oba Abdulganiyu Adekunle Salau, stating that the late monarch loved and worked for Iseyin’s development with all his might.
Makinde, who stated this at the Aseyin’s Palace, where he was received by Iseyin Chiefs, family members of the deceased monarch, chairmen of the 10 local government areas in Oke Ogun, said that the state government would give the late Aseyin a befitting burial.
The governor added that Oba Salau’s death was a personal loss to him, as he was a partner in the progress and development of Oyo State.
According to the governor, Oba Salau left a good legacy and did wonderfully well for the development of Iseyinland and Oyo State in general.
He pledged his continuous support and assistance to the children and widows of the late monarch, stating that whether or not he is in office as governor, he would ensure that the monarch’s family members are taken care of, as a personal friend of the late Aseyin.
He said: “I greet the entire people of Iseyin and Oyo State on the transition of our Kabiyesi, the Aseyin of Iseyin. A lot of people may not know that Kabiyesi and I were very close. In my assessment of him, I know he loves Iseyin more than what anyone can imagine. I will like to share two examples to validate my claim.’’
