By Wasiu Owolewa

The Onibuji of Ibuji Kingdom, His Royal Majesty, Oba Folagbade Ojo has revealed the reason behind the installation of the Senior Special Assistant(SSA) to Ekiti state Governor on Special Duties, Chief Olufemi Aduloju as Agba-Akin.

The royal father in his brief remark said he decided to honour the Ado-Ekiti born journalist with the tittle, “Agba-Akin” because of the act of bravery seen in him.

He described Chief Aduloju as a gracious person that death has spared to live. The Onibuji attested to the fact that the governor’s aide is one of the favoured ones that has been destined by God to live to use his glory and one of the major reasons the tittle was conferred on him.

“The reason why I decided to confer the tittle, Agba-Akin on Femi Aduloju is because I see him as a brave person. Anybody that knows Aduloju family in Ado-Ekiti will know that he is a warrior. He is a person that death has spared to live.

“Femi Aduloju is one of the favoured ones that God has destined to live to use his glory”

Oba Folagbade remarked further that another reason for honouring Chief Aduloju was because of his town of origin, Ado-Ekiti which he described as place that has greatly favoured him in life. He recounted his major achievements in Ado-Ekiti during his stay there which accounted for the reason why he is always willing of honouring any person from Ekiti.

“The town, Ado-Ekiti is another reason of honouring Femi Aduloju. That town has greatly favoured me. That is why I am always willing to honour any person from Ekiti ”

The Agba-Akin in his speech shortly after his installation showed his depth of gratitude to Onibuji for deeming him fit to be honoured. He promised to contribute to the development and progress of Ibuji Kingdom.
