Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi, has presented staff of office to the Obaleo of Erinmope Ekiti, Oba (Dr) Sunday Aikuirawo Aniyi, charging the new monarch to work with his subjects for the development of the town. 

Governor Fayemi enjoined the university don – turned traditional ruler to be accommodative, enduring, tolerant and diligent in the day-to-day administration of his domain while urging the subjects to rally around their monarch.  

Presenting the staff of office and instrument of appointment to the new monarch, Governor  Fayemi, who was represented by his Deputy, Otunba Bisi Egbeyemi, also urged Oba Aniyi to be a father to all. 

The throne of the Obaleo of Erinmope Ekiti became vacant following the demise of the immediate past occupant, the late Oba James Olaifa Aina, who joined his ancestors on May 22. 

The new Obaleo, Oba Aniyi, who was joined by his queen, Olori Omoyeni Aniyi, in receiving the instrument of appointment said destiny has thrust the onerous royal duties on him which he promised to discharge to the best of his ability and make the town proud. 

Speaking before handing over the sceptre of authority to the new royal father, the governor who said the selection process was devoid of political colouration and influence, further reiterated his respect for the traditional institution given its roles in peacebuilding and agents of grassroots development.
