President Bola Tinubu has celebrated the Awujale and Paramount Ruler of Ijebuland, His Royal Majesty, Oba Sikiru Kayode Adetona, on the special occasion of his 90th birthday. 

The president, in a statement on Thursday by his spokesman, Ajuri Ngelale, expressed joy that Kabiyesi had attained this milestone age, yet continues to discharge his duties as the ruler of the entire Ijebuland without let. 

President Tinubu said Oba Adetona is not just another traditional ruler in Yorubaland and Nigeria, but a preeminent royal father who has brought honour, integrity, dignity, courage, and impeccable strength of character to the throne over the last 60 years.

Similarly, former President Muhammadu Buhari has joined the nation in celebrating Oba Adetona.

Oba Adetona has the record of being one of the nation’s longest reigning chiefs, having been on the throne ahead of the country’s independence since April 1960.

The former president, in a statement yesterday by his media aide, Malam Garba Shehu, said he was proud of his “special relationship with the Oba and his subjects.”
